I bought the BMW way back in Oct 2012, relaying the tale of zeroing down on the one exact car in which I wanted to do long-distance driving. As I had completed a good bit of driving and passed the 10 000 mile mark, I noted down the things that had gone wrong or remained wrong with it, not forgetting to mark down the positive things about the cheap E34 with which I had decided to live.
One of the major selling points with the car was the long, valid inspection time the car came with; it was road legal until the end of Nov 2013 or more than a year. As the time has now run out, it’s time to take the car to be evaluated by a man with a crowbar. The car now has 250 000 km on the clock, so it’s due for a service anyway. Having driven down to the local MOT station I’ve decided to favor, the keys to the BMW were handed over and 65 of my euros changed ownership. What would they say?
