A1 Restoration, paintwork and solid investment.
Manual, gearbox, steering & windows

Previous owner spent ££££'s on the car with a ton of new parts. The car was originally from the Stocks BMW dealer in Ipswitch and was first registered on 08 June 1988. It's now on 126k original miles.

Its had a full respray in the original colour Zinnoberrot Red.

It runs and drives beautifully especially for a 35 year old car. It has never let me down once and always gets attention everywhere it goes. Always starts first time everytime and I would happily get in and do a long road trip without a single worry!

I have full extensive service history/records with the car & tons of paperwork with 31 entries in the service book.

It always had anything it ever needed regardless of cost to preserve it and keep it running for many more years

I also have every MOT pass certificate since 1992 when it had its first inspection.

The first owner had the car for over 20+ years and it was garaged all its life hence the awesome condition.

The car is a non sunroof coupe with manual steering and manual windows.

last full service at 122,004 miles which consisted of: Engine oil + filter, air filter, gearbox oil, diff oil, coolant flush, fuel filter, NGK spark plugs, new HT leads and a new thermostat.

Oil change 2023 @125k when fixing engine issue.
