Miserable dealer sells horrible BMW

A car dealer’s ad for a vehicle he traded has painted a graphic picture of a bottom-of-the-barrel Bimmer and a very unhappy salesman.

Classic Cars of Wirral’s Richard Harris is blunt about the 1998 trade-in BMW 318ti, which is laid bare on the global auction site under the headline ‘THE WORST BMW ON EBAY?’

“Everything is in poor condition,” reads the uncompromising torrent of abuse directed at the car and its previous owner.

He bluntly labels it a “piece of crap” and a “proper little chav chariot.” He says its exhaust sounds “fart in a bath” in the ad, which offers the BMW as seen and for parts only.

“If in doubt, please presume all parts of the car are either broken, rusty, or covered in some kind of dubious residue. That way you won’t be disappointed. Actually you probably will,” the ad continues/

“While the front wings may look like they are securely attached to the car, they are in fact flapping gaily in the spring breeze that we have today. They may break free at any time.

Even the tyre choices cop a serve from Harris: ‘When selecting tyres, the previous owner used the thinking that variety is the spice of life. They are all of various wear levels and some of the countries they have come from no longer exist so please presume they require replacement.”

He later told a local paper “It’s without a doubt the worst car I’ve ever sold – it has no redeeming features.”

Someone was a bit keen, and it attracted 35 before selling to someone for 220 pounds – who still hasn’t turned up to take the worst BMW off Harris hands.
