“The BMW body is in good condition for its age. yes its got a few marks but nothing to serious. from the motor some smoke has started coming out of the exhaust pipes as you drive off and i believe that the stem seal will need to be replaced. the car did have a service 3 weeks before this started happening and there is a engine light which is on the dash. i have purchased a new car already so i have no intention of fixing it. therefore there is money in it for a mechanic or handy person to fix the problem and have a cheap car or sell it for a profit. this model car has been selling for $7,500 the car has a new radiator, new coils, new tyres.”

The 2005 120I BMW body is in good condition for its age. yes its got a few marks but nothing to serious. Some white smoke has started coming out of the exhaust pipes when the car takes off which i have attached a video so you can see. and i believe that the stem seal valves are the issue. the car did have a service 3 weeks before this started happening and there is a engine light which is on the dash. the car starts and drives but i have it parked in the driveway as i have purchased a new car already which should arrive next week so i have no intention of fixing it. therefore there is money in it for a mechanic or handy person to fix the problem and have a cheap car or sell it for a profit. i have been told that the parts are only a few hundred dollars but it is time consuming and that's where the labour cost comes into it. this model car has been selling for around $7,500 the car has a new radiator, new coils, new tyres. the car rego expires on the 3/5/2021. there is no reserve so this car will be sold. this car is to be sold as is.should you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.
here is a youtube link if it doesn't work send me your email or mobile number and ill send you the link. ( this was done on Saturday the 13th March so you can see what the car is like. )
you will see the smoke as i drive off. most people will say its nothing but i must mention it.i just received this messageHi mate,
I have this car and a 118i. I believe the issue you have is the Oil Separator not stem cells. Just gone through replacing my 2004 120i oil separator, had the same small white puffs of smoke from standstill or at roundabouts etc. Made a world of difference and drives like a new car.
Thought I would pass on the info as a stem issue will scare off buyers, but an oil separator is relatively easy process, just takes time to remove the manifold.
All the best with the sale.
