They have a lot more control buttons than on my 2018 msport 40d that has sport seats and lumbar, but not an expert by any means

There are enough buttons for Comfort Seats but you need the VIN to find the option code. It used to be S456A.
:ant: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.

Was going by shape of thigh support which is how you used to tell the older e70 ones , they do have a lot of buttons though for sure so could be comfort seats :thumbsup:

Good luck in your quest

Thanks for al the help! Yeh full service history is a positive I believe it’s all bmw apart from the latest.

Checked the gov website and all seems decent and roughly covered 20-30k miles per year with 20k in the last year. Will try check the car out and see how it goes 😬

Time to get rid of my Cla45 this weekend :( aww

Thanks! I had a look on the gov website and it seems ok covered maybe 20-30k a year and no Mot fails, however once i get the VIN I can check further. I have arranged to view this weekend, it turns out its the Garage owners own car so hopefully thats a good thing. Is the price fair regarding year and milege and spec etc?

Appreciate all the advice!

Update:

Seen the grey car above this morning. - very impressed! Will hopefully be confirming the details tomorrow. Car has a lot including the rear heated seats. Pan roof etc all in working order :lol: paintwork is immaculate as is the driver seat ( no rip) full bmw history which is great! Car is getting a new shock absorbers replaced this week also as there’s a bit of a clunk.
Would probably get the wheels done black :oops: and the full black double kidney grilles ( don’t judge ) haha!

Hopefully can report back tomorrow confirming !

Lastly any other major things I should check with the high mileage ?

Thanks ! Have a great weekend
