: I'm looking to trade my 325i Touring for a M3.Since I'm trading I was looking to go to a garage which sells them.Has anyone in the UK,or else where used a garage called Independent Motor Company which is based in the south of England and since I stay in Scotland it's a long drive to go for a back street garage!.
...down to see them at the Independent Motor Company immediately after the New Year for the very same purpose! I spoke to them just 2 days ago to talk about their current stock.Seems their prices are more reasonable than Munich Legends, who I also contacted.They were quite helpful as my other idea had been to get an Integrale - was worried that they might be a bit too fragile for our weather and they openly confirmed this and told me they are gradually stopping trading in these as they break all the time!
I have an M535i which I'm looking to trade-in or sell to fund the cost of getting an M3. I also have a 3.0CS which will need to go - it's up for sale in the current BMW Car magazine (had a call from a guy in N.Ireland who sounds quite interested).
Incidentally, we've just purchased a 325i Touring that my wife drives! Seems we have very similar tastes in cars!!
I'll let you know how I get on at the Independent Motor Company.
