This rare 3.0Si left the factory in Polaris silver and it still to this day retains the same colour. The car was subject to a restoration in 2003 and has been repainted again in the last 5 years so it still retains a fresh gleaming finish that looks great. Many of the trim, waist mouldings and badges have been replaced recently with a huge file of receipts for these parts in the history file. The chrome bumpers are in good condition as are the light surrounds, front lights and kidney grill.
The interior on this Si is in incredible condition, the door cards and dash remain largely unmarked and while the seats have been reconolised in their time they are comfortable, sumptuous and plush, like BMW intended for its luxury sporting saloon. This car was fitted with BMW's air conditioning system of the era which has recently been serviced and modernised to take the current specification of gas, as such it blows ice cold air into the well appointed cabin without effecting the original look and feel of this beautiful interior.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The engine was subject to a full rebuild in early 2000 which included rebuilding and gas flowing the original head. The car was then setup on its L-Jetronic fuel injection system with the correct air/fuel mixture by Southern carburetters and injection and as such it still runs and drives like a dream having completed many a trip across some of Europe's best roads, the engine has covered 22K miles since its rebuild.
The 4 speed gearbox works smoothly and retains the sporty nature of this executive sports saloon. The clutch was replaced in 2007 and has only covered 6K miles since and the dampers refreshed and replaced the year before.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This Si retains its 14 inch BMW alloys that are in great condition, on very close inspection they have some light kerb scuffs. The calipers have been refurbished and rebuilt in 07 and as such still stop the car effectively and correctly.
Originally supplied to the UK in 1976 this Si has 6 keeper over the last 36 years. The current keeper has owner the car since 1999 and has pampered it whilst enjoying this hugely capable and enjoyable sports saloon regularly on the roads in the UK and Europe.
The history file is packed full of receipts from the last 13 years showing regular servicing and copious part purchases from BMW main dealers and specialist suppliers.
