Your mate is very lucky to have one as they're now rare since I sold mine, especially manual, which is the one I had and want. Just a question Is the car a saloon or estate as mine was a saloon.
Thanks

This was my Turbo when I sold it close to 10 years ago, but as you can tell it was sat for 5 years and oil was being draged through the intercooler and back into the engine as was like a red arrow. But I suspect the car was tampered with as 1 and 2 gears were pointless as it used to spin it wheels constantly, as this showed when I embarrassed a young lad in a new BMW 325i between traffic lights. Great car as I had it 11 years.

I probably come across as a huge idiot and I probably ask this to everybody who has one of these but would he consider selling it.
Thanks

Thank you and I don’t want to become petty but I’ve been wanting one for a few months but have been unsuccessful in finding the right one.
Thanks
