  1. Whenever a seller won't respond to q's within T/Me it's a massive red flag... for a car like this it's even massiver.
  2. Final bump/call... someone is getting a bargain - auction closes around 8pm this evening 👍
  3. It's back up... and possibly even more of a bargain - someone could be in for a fun summer: https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/bmw/m135i/listing/3373138200
  4. Have relisted on Trade Me with an $18k start and no reserve... if someone wants to put me out of my misery and get themselves even more of a bargain - that'd be grand! https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/bmw/listing/3373138200 And no - it won't be relisted again, or offered at a lower price.

    F20 M135i

    Hi all It seems now isn't the time to sell an M135i - so I'm not putting mine on Trade Me (or anywhere else) until the new year some time. That said, I have no need for an extra car so if anyone here wants it, you can have it for $21k - and I'll chuck in a couple of bimmersport.co.nz stickers you may or may not want to put on the car (or elsewhere lol). I have a couple of people keen but unable to get the funds together immediately so if one of them does so then it'll be gone; will update this post when/if that happens. Car has a decent BMW service history in iDrive and presents/drives well... especially for this kind of price. No, it's not the best one for sale - but looking at Trade Me it isn't the worst either. Get yourself a bargain. Here's the spec details: https://www.mdecoder.com/decode/wba1b720x0j777037
  6. Final bump/call... someone is getting a bargain - auction closes soon. And whilst I may be a little biased as it's mine: https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/bmw/m135i/listing/3373138200 The car is great to drive, is pretty well specced, and whilst obviously it's not too "fast", I've got some health stuff going on and brought the car as I wanted to tick the turbo six box when in reality it's not the right car for my needs now and/or moving forward. If you have money in your bank account, and want to buy something with decent poke/handling that looks like a runabout 116i to the vast majority of people... then get in touch via the Trade Me ad (with my mate who's selling it obo me). Hope you're doing ok wherever you are 🙂
  7. Love that colour! Nice to see one that isn't white, black or... actually - blue is ok... You've pretty well summed up why I'm likely going to get one. Soon.
  8. Morons who don't seem to realise there is still a pandemic (just cos we're in L2) and go to the Blood & Cancer centre in a hospital and proceed to take their masks off whilst sitting in a waiting room with others (many of whom are very ill and at high risk, like me) talking sh*t - which I can assure can still be done whilst wearing a mask lol... and this was family members, not the person who was there for his chemo. Arrogant, insular, inconsiderate, morons. And I'm being very kind.
  9. Hahaha!!! That M performance sticker must be worth 5hp minimum... I'm not so sure about the interior "upgrades" lol
  10. Just sent them a pdf provided by my bank showing all the info they need to perform an electronic transfer - funnily I remain less than confident.

    I've been using https://www.mdecoder.com/ recently with no worries.
  12. Life insurance/superannuation companies/funds who are overseas (like, the West Island) that can't seem to manage an electronic payment to an overseas country (like, the North Island)... but hey - they can post a cheque!!! What bluddy year is this???
  13. I would if I could... chuck some decent wheels back on it and away you go! Unfortunately life stuff means I can't, and every time I drive my $1700 Camry a little piece of me dies. The reality is the $1700 Camry gets me to work and back - and my little Duke is getting me going on 2 wheels again (for fun) so there's no room for an e91. But sh*t, if someone did want a reliable (boring) V6 Camry... nah - who am I kidding 😔
  14. Do it. I dunno what it's like now but it was a great wee thing to punt (in the context of what it is)... at least worth checking it. For around $3;5-$4k... $500 in parts and a few hours effort it could be well worthwhile (or, it's not been well maintained over the last coupla years and you'd have to throw more $$$ at it). Go and look at it - see what it drives like; then at least you know which outcome is more likely and go from there (either to negotiate, or to run far away lol).
  15. Yup... they've ditched the 18's too... jeez I miss that wagon. I didn't mind the spec (for a non-Msport)... aluminium trim, and no decades old i-Drive lol.
