Stunningly beautiful BMW E28 Henna Red, Genuine 89.7k

I bought this car in 2012 and went about restoring her back to her original condition staying true to the original BMW design and specification.

Costing a substantial amount I recognise and having enjoyed many years attending exhibitions its perhaps time to move on so I’m now offering her up for sale.

Extensive history available together with bills and receipts detailing her careful restoration which took place mainly between 2012 - 2017. Work carried out includes all new gaskets and seals, injectors, leads, full BMW service by Peter Vardy BMW Edinburgh, new fuel tank, new suspension all round, new bumpers, full windows out respray in original BMW Henna red, New sunroof and rear light gasket seals, rear light clusters, complete front headlight housing rebuilds, new front wings, rear valance and much much more.

Stored In a heated garage, the car is ready to be enjoyed by hopefully a like minded enthusiast of this distinctive BMW shark nose style and design. I’ve really enjoyed owning her however I’m now interested in restoring an early 80s Porsche and with my daughter soon buying her own first car I need the garage space.

There are many original parts still with the car for example the interior, which is a stunning example of originality in incredible condition complete with its original “crack free” dashboard. The glass with its original dealership security etching, steel wheels and much more. Despite being tempted at times by upgrading items during this restoration such as the wheels etc, every effort remained focused in staying original and true to when she rolled off the production line in 1982.

This car was registered new in Edinburgh in January 1983 as a demonstrator with Eastern BMW before being bought by its second owner who owned her for 28 years. I’m the third owner having now owned her for 8 years. It still has its original rear window dealership emblem as well as the original BMW information stickers for tyre pressure etc.

She’s been exhibited at numerous car shows which are always great fun and was featured in the BMW UK Car Club Magazine.

Currently on sorn and will be sold with 12 months MOT.

Thank you for your interest.
