    I am so jealous right now! As other's said when I left uni I was skint for years, lol. When I paid off the debts, it was time to take on more with buying a house!

    Anyway, welcome and good luck with that stunning car.

    Cheers guys, I think a lot of the better EVOs start at around 5k for a coupe going up to about 10k for a nice cab. I'm pleased with this due to the low mileage (relatively). I think a lot of people were put off by the blowing exhuast and chipped windscreen. It also needs a radio. From what the salesman told me, which I shan't take as Gospal of course but he was saying that people saw the ad, came down and had a look and were put off by th efact that it's got a few problems and that it's got some fading to the outer plastic window border and doesn't look like a mint example. In all honesty though I couldn't care less because at the price I can get it all fixed fairly cheaply. There's probably profit in it if it turns out I can't afford to run it.

    Like Ronnie says.
    1st job should be to replace the vanos oil filter..

    pence for the filter and it could prevent vanos failure in the future

    Unfortunately I won't be buying the car.

    I did a HPI check (stupidly after putting down a deposit)

    In 1999 it had covered 65 000 miles

    In 2005 it had covered 100 000

    In 2006 it was down to 60 000

    In May this year it had done 113 000

    Now it's being sold at 74 000

    I rang up BMW service history and it was in a garage in 2000 with 84 000.

    Basically a bit pissed off with the dealer as they clearly knew what they were doing and they are being complete twats with my deposit saying "we'd gladly give it back, but it's all tied up in stock" Sending trading standards an email as they've put the car back up on autotrader as having 74 000 miles.


    Avoid them.

    Avoid them.

    Sorry to hear your news, i'm sure trading standards are going to love this one

    Thanks for making the forum aware of the Company

    Hope you get your deposit back, how much if you don't mind me asking? You could always send the boys in to inflict damage to stock to the equivelant you're owed PS I'm not serious... honest

    I hope trading standards will take a keen view as well. I'm giving them till Friday to come up with the goods. They said they'd give me the money when they sell a car. So far it's been 7 days and they haven't sold one. Clearly they think I was born yesterday. I'm confident of getting my money back, it's just the route i'll have to take to achieve that goal.

    I'm owed £500. I'm not a violent person, that's just not my ethos. There are however plenty of avenues avaliable.

    Winds me up when dealers think they can still sell a clocked motor.
    Were not in the 80s anymore
    It gives all the other dealers a bad name.,had a look at the M3 shame as it looks a nice motor.you will probably find its near the 150k mark
    It could of been worse,you could have paid the full amount then found out
    Remember, if it sounds to good to be true,,the chances are, you will be buying a lemon

    I feel sure you will get your money back,let us know how you get on
