This car is a Concours show winner. In the last 6 years it has either placed 1st or 2nd in class at the annual BMW CCA Concours D’Elegance. It is in excellent condition for a 35 year old car. It drives even better with lots of torque and very good power throughout the RPM range. It is always garaged and covered and has not seen rain in 20 years. It has been well loved and it shows. Things that do need to be addressed: The leather seats are all original. The rear seats are in excellent condition, the front passenger seat is in good condition with mild signs of wear and the driver seat has 3 small tears in the central portion of the seat. The least expensive fix would be to have an upholstery shop repair the tears but the best way would be to replace the old leather covers with new ones. This is the place to get the replacement covers. http://www.worlduph.com/bmw2.htm. They cost about $800 for the two front seats. Upholstery shops will charge about $500-$800 labor. I just never got around to doing it. Hence the reason that I am selling this beauty is that I have 5 cars and I just do not drive it at all and it should go to someone who would enjoy it more. Please call me if you have more questions. Please email me for pictures.
