This extremely rare 820i se was first registered on 1st August 1994 and was registered with the current plate from new! The ‘se’ model was only produced from April to October 1994
Its first owner was a Mr Todd from Walsgrave who acquired the car on 1st August 1994 from ‘Quicks’ of Leamington Spa
Mr Todd Kept the vehicle until 9th August 1996 when he returned it to ‘Quicks’ where it would very soon become the property of Mr Skinner from Radford Semele with a mileage of just 1,822 miles
Mr Skinner then sold the car to a dealer who sold it to Mr J O Greatorex of Stratford Upon Avon on 5th January 2002 (showing 41,868 miles) who used it regularly until he was no longer able to drive , when ownership passed to his brother.
The car was then off the road for around 6 years until March 2013 when Mr Greatorex’s Ford mondeo was in an accident and he put the car back on the road whilst he sought out a replacement. The car then went back into storage in 2014 until October 2017 when I saw it advertised on social media whilst looking for an X-type Jaguar.
Having had three 800 series rovers in the past, I knew how lovely and smooth they were to drive I had to check it out and after viewing made arrangements to collect the car and get it to the MOT station.
After fitting an ABS sensor , sorting the exhaust and brakes and fitting new windscreen wipers the car passed and was given a full service before being put back in to regular use as my daily driver!
I love the car and am very sad to be having to part with it, but a new (150 yr old cottage) means I won’t have the time or funds to pamper her as she so richly deserves.
Any interested parties are welcome to view and test drive the car subject to valid insurance cover
