Finally made a purchase
« on: June 23, 2018, 05:15:14 PM »
After 4 years searching for the right X3, initially looking at late-model E83 30d - until they were getting too old/high mileage for my liking - I found this F25 30d that ticks almost all the right boxes.  I'm collecting it Monday afternoon.

(I'm sure the selling dealer won't mind that I downloaded these 2 images from his advert)





62-plate, 72k miles, Oyster sport leather, FBMWSH, never had an advisory on any of its MOTs.  The only thing missing is the sunroof - but that's getting rectified next month, courtesy of Webasto.

October 2012 build X3 30d SE, Bluewater.

Hi

Congrats on you new X3 and sometimes you just have to wait to find the right car for you as they say.

I definitely like the colour a good choice  :)

Thanks, Graeme.  It's coming down your way to have the sunroof fitted - Executive Autocare in Hemel Hempstead.   :sun:

Bluewater was my second colour preference, Vermilion was top of the list.  My wife, being somewhat large, won't like the sport seats.

I'll be getting a set of winter wheels, style 304, and swapping the tyres between the sets so that the 305s become the winter set.

Better pics to follow.   :)
