Was looking for a new daily and found this 2011 120d Coupe advertised fairly locally with a short MOT, it had high mileage (163k) BUT the fact it had full service history (mainly at main dealer) and a full engine rebuild due to the timing chain snapping at 140k with an invoice for over £5k was enough to make me take a chance. 

Spent in total nearly a whole week fully detailing the car, and making it fresh again. Removed the standard curbed wheels and ordered some just refurbished 436M staggered alloys with sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres. Really like the overall look as it (IMO) makes the car look a little more up to date without being OTT.

The car also had previously a set of coilovers fitted as well as an engine remap and a gearbox remap.

I've got some gloss black mirror covers, rear spoiler and front grills coming.

Will update the thread as things progress...

Little update...

Fitted my new gloss black kidney grills, M3 style mirrors and rear lip spoiler. 

Also had it serviced at the local BMW main dealer (Ocean) who remarked on how clean it is for it's mileage (163k) which is always nice and couldn't find anything wrong with it. I was expecting a few issues, but nope all good it seems.
