Yes you would need to haggle, however this would be within budget.

Also consider hanging around the odd auction just to see what's coming through.

Also remember to budget for extended warranty etc.

Yes cash, the plan is to keep the car for many years so will run it into the ground, pcp etc suits some people but it's not for me.

Good luck
Thanks

I have my heart set on a m sport one as they look a little smarter, after seeing the 328i specs I'm tempted, but there are very few early ones available on autotrader, it seems everyone goes for the 320d.

Why does it have to be MSport?

Just shove some ACS springs on or similar, circa 500 quid.

Then look at classifieds on here and gradually add stuff.

I prefer the exterior looks, famous last words but I don't want to get into modifying the f31, I just want something ready out of the box to tow with.
