Am I going to struggle to sell my car this near Christmas???

It's a 54 plate 3 Series, if that makes a difference.

its the best market for doing it now mate as long as you are only doing one or two, cos people are buying cheap motors so much right now.

Depends how much you want for it, its a buyers market really. Probably struggle to get top end price for it, if you price it reasonably or bottom book price should still sell quick, but you'll peobably be waiting a while to get top end price.

i had a 545i for a couple of months this year, backed it tho, to fucking lively for road and petrol and i felt like a travelling sex toy salesman in it.


p.s ive just had a look thru all the paperwork on the lads golf plus, its an 's' as well, and cos it was a lease car for one company itshad one owner since new and the beauty of it is that i really never realised is cos its three years old at the start of this month they even mot and do a yearly service before they put them thru the auctions, that is so good, cos i really didnt think they would bother and had booked it in for an mot tomorrow and now dun have to bother…its deffo the only way to buy a car imo, get a three year old end of lease from an auction., its the future

tell him to go for it.
im rolling in a m6 cab at the moment, gonna back it i think, to quick and the petrol tank is fucking tiny to save on weight for speed, so im pulling into the petrol station once every two days cos it oly holds about 230 miles, where normal sixes and sevens hold about 550 miles, so you top up once a week and dont have to stop again..i fucking hate stoppping for petrol, especially when its freezing.

Cool
i reckon you could easily earn a grand a week doing that, if you had 4 to 5 to lay out, just go there once a week and sell it on the net the following week for a grand profit and then ad infinitum. i honestly do believe its that simple. (if you have got half an inch of common sense that is)

I used to find bargains and re-sell on e-bay whilst at uni, didn't quite make a grand a week but there is defo money to be made. Bought a car off a a guy through e-bay once, after I met him in Highbury Park and gave him the cash, he was like "make sure you leave me feedback tonight", I'd already paid tho and was super stoned so didnt fully clock. Next day the fucker didn't start for shit!
