A grand? Those days are over now. They've started shooting up in price. Even with the crash damage, knackered paintwork and 30k miles I've plonked on it, it's worth a lot more than I paid for it.

Thats because you underpaid for yours. I see 728i for under a grand in "acceptable" condition that will sell for under 1000£ every week.


Maybe exported, rather than cubed?

Possibly wishful thinking on my part, mind... these are phenomenal cars, it still shocks me that even now survivors are being scrapped over trivial issues. But maybe they've finally turned the corner from bangerdom to youngtimer classic, if prices are on the rise...


Unfortunately unlikely. The guy I sold it to didnt have a clue about cars. It failed its MOT because of bushes and rusty brake pipes a year later, he probably just scrapped it. I might have bought it back if he just asked me, who knows.
