MOT’D UNTIL JULY 22ND 2015
Here we have a very low mileage example of the E30 3 Series, having covered a genuine 41,000 miles from new.
This amazingly original car has been garaged from new, the result is a car thats in outstanding condition, with excellent bodywork and paintwork along with an as new interior.
The paintwork on this car is Zinnobar Red. All panels on this car are original, and as far as we can see, so is the majority of the paintwork. The paintwork has been very well cared for as it still has an all over, deep luster shine. There is no rust on or under this car, all arches are solid etc. The shine on this car is so bright , that people literally stop you and comment how nice it looks.
The condition of the interior has to be seen as to be believed. The cloth seats have no wear to them at all, the pattern and coloring still look factory fresh. This condition continues throughout, so there are no cracks in the dash, the carpets are unmarked and have been protected by overmats from new, all the dials and switches feel new. Look closer and the roof lining is perfect, the dash still has the blanking plate still in place as no radio has ever been fitted to this car ?
This example is a 316, fitted with the excellent 1766cc M10 chain driven engine mated to smooth automatic gearbox. This engine starts straight away hot or cold, runs perfectly and provides ample performance whilst returning excellent fuel economy. This engine will cruise at 70mph with ease, with only 3000 revs, this car makes an ideal usable classic package. Power steering was still an option when this car was supplied, luckily the original owners chose power steering, so this BMW is lovely and easy to drive.
This car was owned by the original lady owner for the first 20 years. She purchased it from Chandlers BMW, and took it to them every year without fail for servicing, even with the little mileage being covered. The next two owners new the original lady and can remember her towel drying the car if it was wet, before tucking it away in the garage for the night. The car still has its original number plates fitted and we have the original, fully stamped service book, showing this car has no less than 24 services from new, the last being the big Inspection II Service at Cheyne BMW.
The MOT runs until the end of July 2015 and had no advisories.
This car drives and performs exactly as you would expect from a very low mileage car.
You will love how light this car feels, its a very relaxing car to drive, and the amazing condition certainly draws alot of interest.
This lovely BMW is ready to be enjoyed now.
