OUR CLIENT

John and his wife have owned this car since new yes you heard correctly, SINCE NEW over 29 years.

Please take a look at the Meet the Owner video to hear Johns story about how he bought it as a present for his wife all those years ago.

Reluctantly they are now parting with the car as unfortunately the couple dont use it as much these days so its just sat in the garage and they want it to go to a new home that will take care of it and importantly, use it.

THE EXTERIOR

Finished in Alpine White John tells us the car has not been subject to any respray which means youre looking at rare and original paint. The car is in original condition it hasnt been prepared for sale, so you can see the true condition.

Wheels & Tyres
The car is sitting on its original wheels that are in good condition please take a look at the photos and video to see in more detail. The tyres are showing signs of age and it would be beneficial to have them changed at some point soon.

Bodywork
As mentioned, the bodywork is in original condition there are a few marks as you can see in the videos and images. However, they could be remedied easily by the new owner. Theres some very light surface rust on some of the inner wheel arches again this could be easily remedied as theres no evidence of it spreading to the outside of the panels. Its nice to see the car in such original condition its clear that nothing has been covered up at all.

Paint
The paint is in good condition across the car it would benefit from a light mop and polish.

Glass and Trim

All the glass on the car looked in good condition. John tells us it still has the original front screen as you can see by the original BMW sticker. There is a small stone chip near the top of the screen on the drivers side.

THE INTERIOR

This is as original as it gets hardly any wear can be seen and it almost feels factory fresh as you sit inside.

Seats and Carpets
Finished in cloth, there is not much wear visible in the normal spots. The carpets are in exceptional condition too.

Dashboard
The dash is in original condition and shows almost no signs of wear it really does feel like a new car. Please take a look at the pictures and videos to see for yourself.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
The car still has its original steering wheel and again is in exceptional condition please see the photographs and videos for a closer look.

MECHANICS

The car is currently on a SORN as John and his wife havent used the car so much recently. So we couldnt do out usual On the Road video, however we have still filmed the car starting and selecting gears together with the clutch bite. John assures us the car drives well with no known issues.

Engine and Gearbox
A quick review of the engine bay immediately confirms this cars originality it looks great and very clean. The car started first go from cold with no visible smoke noticed on our visit. Please take a look at the video to see the car starting from cold.

Suspension and Brakes
As mentioned, we couldnt take the car out on a drive, however, we did manoeuvre it around Johns drive and the brakes worked well and were not stuck on they were free and the pressure felt good.

The Drive
N/A vehicle on a SORN.

Electrics and Other
There aret many electrical items on this car, however, youll see the windows working fine in the video. John has reported that everything is working as it should with the car.
