Very low mileage and massive scope for changes and improvements on it to make it just what you want. Steering wheel is nasty, mine was like that, but an easy change for a new soft nappa perforated one from Powerful UK, makes ALL the difference to the driving experience too.

Congrats, and when you need your flip keys refurbing, you should check out this guy on the forums...

Cheers thanks, yeah it was the mileage that did it for me, did all the checks and its genuine, and the interior is mint.
yeah the steering wheel is nasty, its the first thing i want to get sorted, plus tinting on the rear windows !!
found a local company for that too.

Thanks for the tip on the fobs, Very Happy

Cheers

Welcome and that is a great car. No idea what you paid, but it looks superb.

Always liked the original 3. It still looks fresh today.

It was during one of its few reliable phases when it didn't get washed at the dealers!! Laughing Laughing

I picked up the D4 last Sept and it has only been washed in the service in May. Not sure it even needed it!! Laughing Laughing

The best colour, after Cairns. Welcome indeed! Might want to check the belt replacement date; owner may have considered the mileage rather than the age (which is approaching that for the second change) and not had it done.

Not to put a downer on things but I hope they are going to sort out the advisories on last years MOT for the new 12 month one they are going to put on it for you. That is unless all the work has already been done.
