    IMG_4616.JPG IMG_4616.JPG I have for sale my 320D SE Touring. Details are:

    2006,
    Manual,
    c115,000 miles,
    Metallic Silver,
    MOT-08-2014
    Full service history
    Dual Zone Climate Control,
    Parking Distance Control (Rear),
    Black Leather Interior,
    Non Smoker,
    Multi Function Steering Wheel,
    Air conditioning,
    Central locking,
    Cruise control,
    Front armrest,
    Folding rear seats,
    Immobiliser,
    Passenger airbag,
    Side airbags,
    Radio/CD,
    Rear headrests,
    Traction control,
    Alloy wheels,
    PAS,
    Electric door mirrors,
    Electric windows,
    Front fog lights,
    Height adjustable drivers seat,
    Isofix child seat anchor points

    I've attached as many pictures as I am able to although I have plenty more. I am happy to take more photos of specific areas if needed.

    History since I bought the car:
    October 2013 - Full service undertaken. In terms of service history, it has been serviced by BMW on all occasions expect this last one.
    August 2013 - Last MOT undertaken. Two new rear tyres fitted.
    In May 2013 - I hit a pothole and the N/S/F spring broke. Needed a new spring and link rod as a result.
    February 2013 - Replaced front brake pads and discs.
    November 2012 - Replaced the fuel tank breather hose.

    General Overview:
    All in all, the car is in great condition as the pictures attached show. With a good clean of the plastics and a good hoover it would look even better.
    The leather looks barely worn despite its age and mileage.
    The gear knob is a bit worn.
    All buttons/gadgets etc work.
    There is a small scratch on the passenger side dash.
    It has had a minor scrape on the front bumper from the wife bumping a high curb in a car park. I've been told that this could be easily fixed with a bit of T-Cut.
    The two rear tyres are almost new and the two fronts still have plenty of tread left.
    The wheels are in pretty good condition. One of the pictures make the wheel look like it has damage towards the centre but thats just dirt.

    Summary:
    I've throughly enjoyed driving the car. In my opinion it provides a great balance of performance and economy. It handles really well when you need to put the power down but is a great comfortable every day family car.
    I do mainly town driving and i get between 35-40mpg. The best test of fuel economy came when we drove to eurodisney last year. We drove there and back on a tank which was something like 700 miles. Couldn't believe it.

    Reason for sale:
    Basically my wife is looking to go from a Renault Clio to a Nissan Qashqai which will become the family wagon. As such, I don't need to drive a family car (It's a bit excessive for my commute) and I want to get another mini.

    The number plate is not going to be included in sale as this is the wife's plate.

    Hope that helps people to get a good idea of the car as it is, it's history (at least whilst I have owned it) and my reason for sale.

    Looking for £6,000.

    Location: Haywards Heath, West Sussex

    Thanks

    765 views but no interest. Does anyone have any thoughts what might be wrong with this? I thought it well priced based on others for sale on autotrader.

    I've no idea about your pricing and am not in the market for a car, but as you're asking for thoughts on the lack of interest...

    Maybe add more images of the car, whenever I'm on the hunt for a motor, I'm always put off by single shot adds. Pics of all sides and the interior, you get the gist.

    Just an idea.

    GLWS, it's a nice car

    Thanks. You could be right. I'll get some more sorted tomorrow. Hopefully that'll help.

    As above plus hardly a price crash plus Full service history (mainly BMW) would put me off without a breakdown .... after all it's been doing around 15k miles a year

    Not sure what you mean about the service history? Having checked it, all but the last service was by BMW.
    And the price crash edit was tongue in cheek :)

    Just for info, you have only listed the spec. You havent mentioned anything about its condition, anything that has been done to it recently (new tyres/new brakes etc), when the next service is due.
    But the biggest thing is lack of pictures.

    Okay. I figured these are all things I can add as and when people asked. Will take some time this evening to put a more complete add together. Thanks for the comments.

    I'm sure that this is because you have edited your post but as it stands now the following things are not in your for sale post:

    1. Your asking price.
    2. Any pictures whatsoever
    3. Your location

    Hope that helps

    Mike.
