    He lived no-where near the sea it lay in a garage at his mothers house and she used to take it to her sisters once a week for a run the bit I haven't understandably got round to mentioning was the make of car, a Triumph Acclaim it would have sounded so much better if it was some classic gem, it was even beige ............

    I did also say if it checks out and is a genuine low mileage as new car its worth going as I made the same comments as you and others, in that people may have a change in circumstances, use other transport etc etc.

    My point was, these things do genuinely crop up but, one should do their due diligence as well and not just take someones word for it. Generally, things like 3/420's, just like C220's are bought as beaters so just got to make sure you're not getting one that's been clocked etc.

    As a case in point, T'other half's car does under 2,000 miles a year - which is almost exclusively shopping trips. I tend to drive and use my car for anything else.

    My son traded his two year old 435i last year with 22000 on it. His replacement 440i now has 13000 on it. Total warranty issues on both cars.... 1. On the 435 he had some corrosion on one alloy wheel, it was replaced.
    Get that 420 snapped up now
