This “New Class” BMW is an important model in BMW history, with more presence and styling than their successor the 2002. This particular example looks great in Granada red over black interior. Highly documented with just 79,000 original miles, this car has not been fully restored and is very well preserved.
The engine has just received a top end overhaul with reconditioned cylinder head, valve adjustment, all new gaskets, ignition components and a tune-up. This car runs, drives and stops as it should and all systems are functional.
Originally an automatic, the 4-speed manual transmission conversion was completed by a BMW specialist.
The red paint looks even better in person than in these pictures. Straight rust free body panels are a welcome sight on a vintage BMW. All the hard to find chrome and trim is in excellent condition with minor exception.
Interior is original and in good condition. The dash is free of cracks and all interior wood is intact with nice finish. Headliner, door panels and seat covers are all in very good shape.
This is one of just a handful of Neue Klasse cars on the east coast. Never get lost in the sea of 2002’s again!
