    Thanks mate. I am a British Expat living in Dubai and a bit of a car and motorbike petrolhead. I tend to get a car, do some work on it (Me and Garage) and then not so much sell to make a profit, more to just try a new car that I have my eyeball on as I am sure we all do. Had a few cars over the years, more recently finished a Jag E Type Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe 1963, which tool 2 years of work. This BMW is a little lighter as its already mechanically sound and had a new paint job. Sold my E30 M3 1987 Euro Spec car a year or so ago and my Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 2 in Giallo Ginestra Yellow.

    I have already sent the chassis number to the email one of the lads supplied, thanks for that. Cheers.

    RandomPunter...!
    Can you tell us what you plan to do about air con, these cars are hot enough in the UK so I wonder if you will do some extra upgrades for Dubai. Perhaps you. will do the opposite to if you lived here and only drive it in the winter.
    Enjoy the car and welcome to the club.

    The car already has Air Conditioning actually mate, and it runs very very cold. Most BM's air con is awesome, I had the same in my E30 M3 and that blew cold too. I bascially have 2 settings on it and it all looks factory standard. Well looked after though. I think it might actually have the origianl 40k KMS on the clock as its pretty mint, aside from the obvious respray.
