Blast from the past - help valuing s54

Post by shantybeater » Tue 06 Feb, 2018 13:58

Hi All,

Its been a long time since I visited the forum. Not sure if any of the old members are still kicking about?

Anyways in a strange (and tragic) turn of events I have been offerered the chance to buy back my S54 M Roadster. This comes at a very inconvenient time but its not a chance I would pass off lightly. In short if I were to purchase the vehicle I need to make sure I can get back what I paid for it fairly easily (via trade value etc..).

The car is now missing its service booklet, luckily I keep a spreadsheet with all the servicing details so I may be able to pass a new booklet round in order to get the service history properly covered again (not sure if third party garages are happy to do this?)

Can any of you give me a realistic estimate on the car?

Details:
61k~
2002
Silver exterior / Red & Black interior
Roadster

Just to add, I have rung around a few dealers, munich legends, hexagon etc.. and they appear to be offering mid-late teens for the car (with service history) but happy to put on SOR for £25-30k.

Phil’s S54 was advertised at BMW for £27K but sold for £19K I believe, 85k miles approx.

With 61K miles I would expect £22-25K private sale

Thanks Gazza, I've been offered the car at 21k but its come at a really bad time for me. How easily do you think I could find a buyer at a similar price (if circumstances changed and I needed to move it on quickly)? Did Phil's shift quickly? 19k from a BMW main dealer suggests a cheap trade in or was it SOR?

Phil p/x'd his car for an Alpina 3 series from Sytner.

A forum member had seen the car and approached Sytner and made an offer 'as is'.

If the S54 isn't a keeper then I would pass @ £21k

Thanks Gazza, I wish I could commit to it as a long termer but its just completely the wrong time (I now have three cars sat on the driveway). I've decided to let her go..shame
