Footnotes

  • Supplied new to South Africa, this rare right-hand drive 3.0 CSi has had only three private owners from new, the last of whom enjoyed it for many years. The car had seen little recent use when it was purchased directly from the aforementioned owner by the current vendor.

    Imported into the UK in March 2016, it was in a sorry state on arrival and has since been totally restored with no expense spared.

    The vendor's team works on all types of high-end classics, and this BMW was stripped back to a bare shell, with all parts either cleaned or replaced before reattachment. Repainted red at some time, it has been returned to its original Taiga Green colour following a rebuild of the body, and looks stunning. All of the chromework has been refurbished, and all door seals and window seals replaced, while the headlights and indicator lenses are brand new.

    Beautifully presented, the interior has been re-trimmed in factory-correct black leather and the headlining and carpets renewed.
    The matching engine has been fully rebuilt, with every component refurbished or replaced, resulting in a clean and bright engine bay. This car also benefits from a (rare) five-speed gearbox that has just been fully rebuilt by a BMW specialist, resulting in a tight and positive shift.

    All suspension components have been renewed - shock absorbers, ball joints, rubber bushes, etc – and there are new brake callipers, discs, and pads all round. Shod with new tyres, the factory-correct BBS 14" wheels have been refurbished and are like new. Indeed, this car is as clean underneath as it is on top.

    There some 100 pages of photographs and invoices in the accompanying 2"-thick file documenting this epic 'last nut and bolt' rebuild, which cost in excess of £50,000. Its resurrection completed, this CSi is lovely in every respect and a credit to the restoration team. Noteworthy features include the City Pack, electric windows, power assisted steering, and a (factory) electric sunroof. Freshly MoT'd and said to drive very well, this stunning looking car represents a wonderful opportunity to own what must be one of the best of its kind currently available.
