[Wanted] D3 V8 HSE

Looking for a V8, just missed out on one cash waiting, no real preference other than not black if I can find one

Ironically, I ended up with a black one as I didn't want silver (as seemingly 90+ % are!)

What's your budget? They're getting rare enough now for some dreamers on the price front

Went to see one at a dealer today, black SE, done c. 70k miles

Seemed in reasonable shape in terms of body, underneath and the interior.

Engine had a fluctuating idle, and when revved a big vibration through the drivers seat as the revs fell back to idle

They were asking top money, also black and didn't have the sunroofs as a SE (maybe not a bad thing)

Tyres were knackered, overall just felt like a lot to do and to pay a lot for

Smooth as butter and near silent at idle is what you are looking for (unless you have a modified exhaust like mine)
