Introduction

One of these specialist edition ‘LE’ models were given to each UK BMW dealer, as the final examples of the E21. This is 1 of 170 believed to be produced and was sold by Woods of Bournemouth on 12/8/1982.

Fitted with unique factory two tone paintwork, Mahle alloys, BBS front spoiler, Rear spoiler, Leather trimmed steering wheel, Recaro Sports interior, Sports suspension etc.

This example has covered only 43,000 Miles from new. It comes with full service history, original manuals etc. Its won concours competitions at BMW club events, it’s an amazing original example.

It survived so well as its been garaged all its life. Between 1992 and 2012, it was stored correctly and remained un used. Its since been back in light use since 2012, for summer show events etc.

This actual car has appeared in the ‘BMW 3 Series – The complete story’ by James Taylor. It was used for many of the E21 shots / engine bay etc.

Its also the actual car used by Tiff Needell , as a piece for Fifth Gear looking at the ‘Retro E21 323’ – See  Tiff’s YouTube Clip

Bodywork / Wheels / Interior

The paintwork on all ‘LE’ is a special tow tone finish. Ascot Grey Metallic and Graphite Metallic. The paintwork is in excellent condition wherever you look. It really does stand out at any show. Look closer, you will see this example is as close to a new one as you are going to find.

Look inside the arches, look underneath, its all amazingly clean and original.

This example has won previous concours events, its clear to see why.

The interior is amazing. Again a unique Recaro sports interior was chosen for this model. As you can hopefully see, its all in excellent original condition. This condition continues wherever you look, door cards, carpets, head lining, original overmats etc.

The unique Mahle alloys fitted to this model are again in superb original condition. No curbing, no corrosion, all fitted with matching tyres. The spare alloy and tyre have never been used.

Engine / Gearbox

The 2.3i engine runs and performs perfectly. I can’t believe how smooth it feels in this example, its absolutely lovely. The engine bay looks amazing. Look underneath, all completely dry, no oil leaks or corrosion.

The 5 speed manual gearbox and the clutch all feel and perform perfectly.

History

This example benefits from full service history. We have all the original manuals, the original fully stamped service book, Sales brochures etc. We also have all the VOSA MOT history, HPI clear certificate etc.

Summary

I have been lucky enough to have driven plenty of these E21 323’s, this example feels so fresh and tight. Look underneath, look in the engine bay / boot, it’s as good as they come.

It belongs in a well cared for collection, hopefully being taken to  summer events, to keep it running so well.

You really won’t find another like it !
