Why not ask the seller about the history over the last two years or 20,000 miles and find out who has been working n the car?

That's a exact replica of my old girl. Same suede/cloth seats, same anus colour, same spec.

Go on, get some details for us all - I wonder if he wants to PX for a 3.6 :haha:

Is it just me, or is something not quite right with those wheels? They look like the M-Parallels, but not, if you see what i mean. They definiatly look big enough to be 18's, just something doesn't seem quite right

I thought the same, they look to have been polished or something. I would imagine they are standard rims that the owner has had refurbed in a style that suits him. Nothing that can't be put right I wouldn't have thought.

Might have bought some of those ebay 'replicas', or done a refurb with polished everywhere!

That phone number locates it not that far from me hmmm

the rims indeed appear to be at least reworked.

I used to be able to spot it very easily but there's a car in the picture thread which I thought to have replicas but turned out to be OEM's sprayed in a different fashion.

Looks like a nice car. Hate the mudflaps. Don't care if its 'sleeper' . Its ugly.

Is it just me or are those seats half M cloth and half leather, rather than suede?

Is that a factory option?

Guys, I think those wheels may be replicas as they look exactly like my e39 wheels, which are replicas. Genuine M-Parallels have tapered spokes like they have a large chamfer whereas the fake ones don't giving the impression that the spokes are thicker, also the finish is polished.

Ooops - good spot on the postcode, and to think I'm an IT consultant too (not in security, obviously!). I see what you mean about the wheels, definitely not the right spacing between the spokes. I'll give the guy a call early next week if I find the time and find out more.

Wheels just look fake.

Difficult with M-Paras - but they look damn fake.

Seems odd on a '95 model - most peeps tend to put the ebay m-para chaff wheels on the older cars - that don't have them as std.

Maybe it's just me - I dunno.
