F25 XD3 Genuine Alpina Bits & Bob's For Sale.

I had totally forgotten that I still had a set of Alpina Mats. They are from my XD3 (2013). I swapped them for a set of rubber mats when I first purchased the car. They look like brand new, no heel marks or scuffs totally unused. I am asking £85.00 + postage. I also have a Space Saver Alloy Spare Wh...

If you have the standard Dakota leather....is it worth the effort?

The leather is plastic coated.....or so I was led to believe.
It will make it smell nice but does it feed the leather?....probably not.

Unless you know otherwise.

What do you think?

I reckon someone has had their fingers burnt! It was originally up for sale at £50k......now I don't think the mileage has increased by much, it has gained coloured mirror caps, different grill and an expensive set of larger wheels and tyres.......then factor in it has dropped £10k in value! It re...

I would like to point out that I could have had the car repaired and it would not have been categorized as far as the insurance was concerned! Part of the reasoning for taking the money and having it written off was that if I p/ex'd it I would have had to say it had been bumped if asked the question...

I think I can help with the first one!

Give your key to your friendly BMW dealer for him to insert in the key reader.
Ask him for a print out.
When I did this on a previous car it gave a list of all options fitted when built.

Hope this helps.

Yep! That was mine, looks in better shape now than the last time I saw it. Done approx 1000 miles since I bumped it. Does look good though. States in the listing that it has 'Power Tailgate'......must have been added when it was repaired....or an error...mind you it also states 'Metallic Alpine Whit...

Could this lead to cars being priced at the £40k threshhold , then registered as so.......options then to be fitted as dealer fit only after registration. Could it lead to Sytner going back to carrying out conversions themselves?? Once the standard vehicle was registered obviously. Not likely but a...
