Lachs Silver, With Full Black Leather, 16" Alloys, NON Catalyst Car,  UK Supplied From New, An Amazing Time Capsule Car, Unrestored Never Welded And Rust Free, The Car looks And Feels Like a 3 Year Old Example, 4  Owners, Owner No 3 Bought the car when it was 12 months old with 252 miles, An Italian Restauranteur from Shipley In Yorkshire, the first services were all done in Yorkshire, then from 1996 to 2010 3 services carried out by BMW in Rome,the last in 2010 at 64,600 Miles, It stayed in the owners garage at his Villa in Italy ( Still UK registered)before returning to Yorkshirein 2016, with  the car living most of its life in the Italian sun the car is rust free. The car has never had an aftermarket alarm or immobilizer and now has a reconditioned Blaupunkt Toronto Just as it left the showroom, Having only done 3,000 miles in the last 11 years, I have recommissioned the car using Genuine BMW parts , the tyres whilst having 4mm of tread were dated 2003, the discs lipped like they had done 20,000 miles, I assumed the pads were also over 12 years old, So Full Inspection II Service at my local BMW Specialist, New Discs & Pads, Flexi Brake Hoses,  New BMW OE Exhaust Back Box to return to factory spec, Valve clearances reset using New Shims, New BMW Battery, The suspension felt slightly soft, so new springs and top mounts and drop links, all genuine BMW But Bilstein Suspension struts as the original Boge's are no longer in production, the ride heisght has been preserved unlike so may aftermarket lowering spring kits, All parts used have been Genuine BMW  apart from the spark plugs and dampers which BMW no longer supply, The wheels whilst original had a few minor scuffs, So were sent to Lepsoms In Kent for refurbishment and 5 new tyres, The interior had minimal wear on the drivers seat bolster, so all the seats were taken out and cleaned and redyed where necessary by a local antique restorer, 15 hours work. Even the overmats in the photos are original and still unmarked. The bodywork was in original condition bar the drivers wing and rear passenger wing which had signs of previous paintwork, the bumpers were of course stoned chipped and marked so the bodywork has been refinished for the first time in its life. All the little things I have tried to attend to, even the little white glove Box Torch works, full tool kit, even down to the blue duster, my detailer spend 4 hours cleaning the boot area, the little brown marks in the photos aren't rust but the remains of the cavity wax he couldn't clean out. The engine bay still shows stains from the factory wax protection,  Just a  really beautiful unrestored car 

Having sold a number of these cars in the 90’s its been a labour of love and obsession to make this car as close to the day it left the showroom. It’s a shame its not a 10,000 mile museum piece find, but unlike so many cars in the market imported from Japan , multiple owners and all sorts of stories and damage and modifications or in need of restoration, or been “restored” this is a true time capsule example, now recommissioned to the finest detail and one can hope will continue to increase in value
