    Default 316A with 29000 miles

    1985 auto 316 with 29000 miles it's a base spec with only automatic (£760), metallic paint (£276) & wider wheels as order opinions. Non sunroof so has headroom It was in storage for 16 years & was owned by a lady before going into storage. The next owner put it into storage but through things all around it till it was buried, so it has some paint work & a re-lacquer to fix the damage from the years of storage. The inside is just like new with no wear & no sun damage.



















    When you tilt the front seats forward to get into the back they snap right back by themselves
    as the rear seat has never been used.






    Good old M10 engine.

    Beautiful. Rare to see one in this condition.

    10 years ago we would all be screaming at you to swap out the engine and box, but times have changed.

    I have the same colour car & interior at home, but 87. Hated the combo then, but would love to have kept it original and clean. The fabric on those particular seats is virtually impossible to find without the pattern parting/ripping along the edges.

    I'd have thought that the 2 button digital clock was an added option too? Mine had an analog clock there, and no radio.

    The early chrome bumper e30's with the little small front valances had the digital clock, when BMW introduced the 325i part of the facelift on the range was the digital clock was replace with analog clock.

    I hadn't seen any previous posts from you about the car, so it looked like you were linking pictures from a for sale car. Keep it as it is, it really is a lovely car.
