Post 1M to go through public auction (UK)

Sytner BMW group are putting a 1M through BCA public auctions tomorrow (30th Oct) because they are having trouble selling it due to the number of previous owners. It's had 5 price reductions, but the buyer will in essence be the 4th owner, so it's not shifted.

It's believed to be the 1st 1M to ever appear at a public auction in the UK...

Lot: SYT057, BMW 1 SERIES M 3.0 2 Doors, Coupe, Petrol, Manual Transmission, Orange, Margin
Registration: GJ61HJX
Registration date: 02/09/2011
Mileage: 5722 Warranted
Colour: Orange
Log book: Present
Equipment: V5 - 3 OWNERS , Parking Sensor(s) , Air Conditioning , Satellite Navigation , Leather Trim , Alloy Wheels , Srvc Bk - 1 srvc 1 main dlr , Last Srvc - 09/11 0k , S Inf - running in service 864mls




The market for 1M's in the UK has been rock solid, but with M135i sales in full swing it'll be interesting to see where this ends up and for how much it sells...

Shouldn't that statement be read as: "The market for 1M's in mint condition in the UK has been rock solid, so it'll be interesting to see where this ends up and for how much it sells" ?

Don't know the status of the 1M put up for sale, but IMHO "trouble selling", "5 price reductions" and "the buyer will in essence be the 4th owner" aren't reassuring tell-tale signs for a 1M with 5722 miles. Might have encountered hard days during its youth.

Garage List
Leather on the driver's seat (bolster especially) appears to have been taken off then put on again. Either that, or some really weird wear, which is unlikely given the low mileage of the car. Mine has more miles and the leather is nicely stretched as Joan Rivers' face! LOL

BCA don't publish results on their website, so results are found by word & mouth. Keep an eye on the Pistonheads thread as I believe a guy on there was going to attend the auction.

Also posted by OP in http://www.babybmw.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=41426

"Had originally been up at £42850, was £41850 by August, was £40850 in mid-September, was £39850 late September, was £38950 start October, finally briefly £37950 mid Oct, before it was pulled a few weeks back."

As with pretty women with issues: steer clear of getting romantically involved (well, at least in my book).

I started 1 thread on here, and started 1 on BBMW. Not sure how that qualifies to be "posting so many threads", but I do apologise. Next time I consider posting I'll be sure to check with you (as head of the conceited forum police) to ensure I don't break the unwritten rules.

So can we presume you owned the car at some point?

If you did then perhaps it might have been better if you'd shared the information, rather than just inferring you knew something.
