My opinion:

Concours Restored > Show Quality Original
Nicely Restored > Driver Quality Original
Driver Quality Original > Poorly Restored

Original Paint Color > BMW Period Color Swap

Nice CSI Original Interior > New Leather
Driver CSI Original Interior > Poor Leather

So let me ask some other questions.

Good Original car OR restored car?

Original worn interior OR retrimmed?

Original colour OR re-sprayed (in BMW 70s colour)

I guess I’m asking whether values are affected things like the above.
