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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
