Why are you selling?
I’m not really. I do however like to keep a careful log of the condition and the work I do on a car, so creating and maintaining the ‘for sale’ advert from the time I purchase a car makes this easy.
I’ve seen other 335ds for sale for less. Why should I buy yours?
This car is in A1 condition. I’ve looked after the car, anything that’s not right is fixed / replaced straight away. It’s kept in the garage to protect it from the elements, and offers a level of specification, comfort and appearance rarely found among other examples.
What’s the fuel economy like?
In a word: marvellous! Yet there’s still a lot of performance available. Clearly if you drive it hard around town, it’ll only return around 30 miles to the gallon. However on a run it returns over 40 MPG. I’ve not reset the fuel computer (which is quite accurate – I’ve checked it!) for a few months, and my average consumption over that period is 34MPG.
I’ve got some more questions…
No problem. You can email me at any time. I’m more than willing to take specific photos of requested features.
It sounds great. Can I come and see it?
Of course. The car is at my house in Woking, Surrey, and can be viewed most weekends and evenings. However, don’t expect a test drive unless you can prove you’ve got comprehensive cover.
Will you take an offer?
Near offers will be considered, but I think that a viewing will prove that the asking price is good value!
