Hi there, well unfortunately I've decided to sell the coupe, seeing as I cannot drive ATM and haven't for 2 weeks! (Shoulder injury) I'm selling the car to eventually put a deposit on a house
I just think it's the smart thing to do instead of wasting money on cars at my age!

Well on to the car, the car is due just a BMW check and front tyre needs changing really it's a little worn on outside edge, but ill do both of these!

Right the spec as I know of:
2009 (59)
Space Grey
135i M sport Coupé
Manual
2 keys
46,000 miles
Full BMWSH
Full coral heated and electric leather (Red)
M sport pack (including seats)
Business pack (will include Y cable)
Upgrade speaker set
Boot spoiler lip
Parking sensors
Sun protection windscreen
Heated seats
Shark fin
Auto dim Mirror
Auto dim middle mirror
Folding/heated mirrors
Aux and USB input
Day time running lights
Xenons
Auto lights/wipers
Cruise control
Climate control
Dark lines (satin black exhaust toms)
Twin spoke 18" alloys with all RFT all new! (Changing worn one)
Steering wheel controls

Other bits:
Rear seats never been sat in!
Tiny mark on rear bumper and that's it, wheels are untouched!

I'm based in colchester, essex.
Tel: 07736826007
May be interested in part ex, depends!
All viewing welcome, but for test drive will need correct legal documents!

Price: £17,500 Ono

Any question welcome

Will upload pictures once I work out how to unlock my phone to this app


Thanks, Joe.

Lovely motor mate, it is very well spec'd and looks the business. Something about the 1 coupe always catches my eye GLWS.

Ah I see, hmmmm sounds like more fun having the 1 then, power to weight ratio would be much better :)

The 123d has a two litre / four cylinder kicking out 204hp, and the 335d has a three litre / six cylinder kicking out 286hp. They are very different engines!!

My next door neighbour has a 335i with the same engine and he had that mapped last year. The before run was 320bhp and after the map it made 370bhp. Very good engines and that was with just a map northing else lol.

Apparently, he was saying they make more than the standard power that bmw claim.

yes mate extremely tunable! there are people running 385-395 on the forum just from a map and panel filter on a cold day!

i looked into hybrid turbos at £700 a turbo but guaranteed 550bhp
on stock internals !

Hang on, you claimed you had to sell the R because your fleet insurer would no longer insure cars which were 3l or more. And then almost immediately thereafter, you have this?! And you have a similarly dubious reason for wanting to get rid of this motor. What gives?

Selling the car to buy something cheaper at the engine if the day! The R32 had to go because of insurance company not liking above 3.0L, therefor sold it, new owner was over the moon.

Selling this to buy something cheaper and poss buy a house in very near future, I dunno why I brought the 135i I think I was annoyed now having a car so went for it.

You can check the car with what ever you want you won't find anything wrong with it, it's also available for extended BMW warranty...
