1972 Superb BMW E9 3.0 CSI Manual For Sale



Here we have one of the best looking classic BMW’s I have seen for some time, the stunning BMW E9 3.0 CSI. This 1972 CSI is the sought after manual example and is a matching numbers car,showing 95,000 Kms. If you are looking for an E9 that drives as good as any your will find, this example is perfect. Not only is it a great looking, solid car, its been in regular use, so is a very usable classic, not the usual fragile feeling example. This BMW has travelled somewhat since new. First supplied to a lucky owner in Switzerland, then it went to Holland. Following this it spent some time in Ireland, where in 2010, it had a complete, sand blasted, bare shell restoration, to the standard you see here. The last owner purchased the car from a highly respected Irish dealer, before driving it to his home Monaco, where its currently registered. The car is now with us in the UK, so obviously we can register the car for the UK if required.

Properly maintained E9 CSi’s make for a very usable classic cars. But unfortunately, many E9’s are not used regularly, so begin to feel fragile or un reliable. They are now just looked at in car collections. Well this car has remained in use and it feels so much better for it. I have been driving this car around all week and can confirm that everything is working as it should. It has a lovely heater, fan working on all speeds, wipers all fine, modern stereo with good reception, perfectly behaved in traffic or effortlessly cruising on a motorway. Classic Cars magazine tested this actual car as part of a ‘Grand Tourers’ special. Comments included ‘The BMW CSI is easy to like’, ‘Very engaging handling and fabulously elegant, crisp looks’, ‘The glow of knowing you have, in usability terms, a better car than a CSL at less cost, its almost irresistible’. It goes on and on, they loved this example as much as I do.


PAS, Electric windows, Modern stereo, Genuine Alpina 16inch Alloys, Full toolkit.

Bodywork / Wheels / Interior

This CSI is finished in Verona Red. This colour looks fantastic on this BMW, it really works well with the spotless chrome work. The car was fully restored in 2010, and eight years later, it still looks fantastic. This CSI benefits from the CSL front spoiler, a common and very well chosen upgrade.

Looking underneath and more closely at this car, its clear the restoration was performed very well. I welcome any inspection, its a very solid example.

The interior is amazing, one of the nicest E9 interiors I have seen. The stunning woodwork, recently replaced. This was sourced and from California at great expense and fitted by Munich Legends, it looks fantastic. Continue looking around, the seats are excellent and very comfortable and supportive, the carpets are like new and protected by a very high quality set of fitted overmats. Headlining, door cards etc, all just as good. Looking in the boot and this example features the extra lining along with a very nice, trimmed storage box. Its all been finished to an excellent standard. Open the engine bay, the paintwork etc all look fantastic.

This CSI features slightly larger, 16 inch alloys, all in excellent condition, fitted with matching Pirelli tyres. These are genuine period Alpina alloys, just right for this car. These ride perfectly and allow you to fit slightly more modern tyres for regular use.

Engine / Gearbox

The 3.0 fuel injected, straight six engine performs very well, with nearly 200 bhp. This power is very smooth, hot or cold and returns a lovely ‘BMW howl’ when pushed. You will be surprised how modern for the year this car feels to drive, easily competing with modern traffic, but offering a far more relaxed drive.

The 4 speed gearbox feels very nice, the clutch is relatively light, very easy gear changes.


This BMW has a full restoration in 2010. A complete bare shell, ground up restoration, also changing the colour from White to Red, along with adding a full rust protection underneath. We have a full set of pictures of this work with the history. Following that we have a folder full of receipts, with regular servicing work etc. On top of this, bills to note are 1 from Munich Legends in 2014, where they went through the car to ensure it would be a ready for regular use (£4500) and more recently bills show a diff rebuild, then a top end rebuild in the summer of 2018.


This E9 CSI is an absolute delight. Its been brought up to a very good standard and no expense has been spared.

This is a classic which will be loved everywhere you take it, such a good looking and lovely to drive car.

The market for good solid CSI’s is very strong, as with prices of the CSL’s making them almost unusable, the CSI’s make a very good choice.

This CSI is ready to be enjoyed now.
