I am new to this forum and just purchased the 1972 BMW CSi that was in the Golden Globe and Academy Award nominated film Knives Out. Actor Chris Evans drove this BMW in the film. It has factory installed power windows, AC and Blue Velour Seats. This is my first vintage BMW. I also own a 2014 535D xDrive.

Welcome- You may have a good mechanic, if not, I know, raced and had my Dinah BMW 750iL serviced with Andrew Newell. He owns Strictly BMW, in Bellevue. He runs a high quality shop. Mention my name, Michael Shulman.

Hi @rschick,

Thanks for joining. What a funny coincidence running into you. I never see any coupes in "the wild". After explaining to my mother what "Knives Out" was, we ended up watching it last night because she thought it looked interesting. Good flick, and more "coupe time" than most films. I don't really use mechanics so I can't help in that regard, but I can point you to some Seattle folks that can steer you in the right direction.

Welcome. There are a few of us coupe owners up here in the north end. We do periodically do some local day trips (usually in the north end of the State). PM me and I can add you our list (if you are not already included). We can get from 7-9 coupes on these rallies. Due for one this Spring.

Welcome and good luck with your coupe! I enjoyed the film, the e9 was the star as far as I'm concerned.

Welcome to the forum and to the Pacific Northwest coupe owners group. It is getting increasingly difficult to find independent shops that are able to maintain and repair these now quite old cars. There are a few in the area, however and Strictly is certainly one of them. Hope to meet you and see your car in person sometime soon.

Congratulations on the purchase, the movie plot sequel suggests you must have purchased the car from the nurse Marta Cabrera, and in that case
were the carpets damaged by her vomit :).

Enjoy the car!
Only if you asked her if the car has any rust and she replies "rust free"

Beautiful CSI. May I ask how you came about the purchase? Guess what I’m watching tonite?
Sorry for the late reply. I had the COVID-19 and was out for two weeks. I have been searching for a 3.0 CSI for awhile now, but over the last 3 years have kind of put that on hold. My wife and I were seeing the move Midway and a Knives Our preview came on with the CSI in it. I told her I have always wanted that car so I got home and started searching for 3.0's for sale. I came across only 1 in the US and it was at Copley Motors and come to find out was the one if the not released yet movie. We agreed upon a price and then I had an inspection done in Boston. Once the movie was released there were 15 other people wanting to buy the car but because I had an inspection done on it I got right of first refusal. I bought it and had it shipped here and now it sits in my garage. Crazy story : )

Hi, that is great!
I live in Kirkland
I take my driver BMW to Signature BMW about a mile from my house and have always been happy with them
The owner there, Rick told me he has worked on E9s, he has been around quite a while
I am almost done rebuilding mine, down to replating almost every nut so if you want advice on something give me a PM
