E38 armrest
Style 42 alloys in desperate need of a refurb with good Continental tyres all round. I removed the lacquer from the dishes about two years ago and have run them as bare metal so requires lots of maintenance which I have let slip over the winter.
I have owned the car since February 2012 and have done approx. 40k miles with no trouble at all. 
Spare extra parts include - one front Style 42 alloy (needs refurb and new tyre), lower ported M5 style grille, black leather rear seats, nighteye led bulbs and holders, spare black OEM mats, spare original centre console and a box of interior trims and clips, HVAC panel and OEM used blower motor

This car has been a labour of love as you can see with the retrofitting and careful modification and 100% reliable since I have owned it. Due to having 3 kids who need a lot more space it just needs to be replaced with something a bit bigger but I’m keen for it go to an enthusiast to finish it!
It just needs sport arch liners, the front fog lights wired up (I have the retrofit kits from BMW which are included) and the rear bumper painted and it will be done.
Car has had some paint to the front passenger wing and drivers door and more recently the front sport bumper, rust on the front sills sorted and fuel filler cap treated and painted. There is some slight bubbling on the underneath of the rear sills and boot lid near the license plate lights. Nothing terminal and jacking points have a clean bill of health.

Car is now sold. 


Purchase price was exactly what I paid for it 6 year ago but hate to think what I've spent on it in that time!
