Footnotes

  • In 1982 BMW's successful 3-Series was face-lifted (code E30) and given improved rear suspension; four-door models arrived at the same time and customers could also opt for versions tuned by the German tuning firm of Alpina, which had first offered modified 3-Series BMWs in 1976. Founded by Burkard Bovensiepen, Alpina began producing tuned versions of BMW models back in the 1960s, before the Bavarian company's own Motorsport Department launched its now famous 'M' range. A close collaborator with BMW from its earliest days, Alpina enjoys motor manufacturer status in Germany and can take much of the credit for establishing BMW's high performance image thanks to a succession of sensational road cars and countless race-track victories. With the introduction of the E30 range, Sytner BMW was granted an exclusive licence to market Alpina-converted cars in the UK.

    We are advised that various modifications have been made to this right-hand drive, Alpina-converted E30 model: lowered suspension, altered coil springs, removed roof lining and a Unichip, the latter installed by Bexley Motor Sport in June 2002 (bill on file). The car is offered with two service/maintenance invoices, current MoT and Swansea V5 registration document.
