THE BODY AND TRIM
The exterior of this nearly 40 year-old classic BMW is in excellent 99.99% rust-free condition overall with deep and lustrous white paint finish, nice original trim and original alloy wheels with excellent rubber. There are just a few very minor cosmetic imperfections including minor rock chips and various light scratches along with a brush touched up scratch on the rear deck lid.
As I hope is articulated in the photos here, the interior of this car is also in very good to excellent original condition throughout with near-flawless original dash and wood trim. The lights, blinkers, horn and all other gauges and controls function as they should. There is some light wear and tear specifically on the top of the rear seat fabric, a tiny beginning of a crack on the vinyl dash. The A/C is not blowing cold [nor have I needed it that for many years] and there is some discoloration on the rear headliner pillars. Overall this is one still very handsome and comfortable classic cockpit!
THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This 1979 and starts and runs beautifully with smooth acceleration, crisp shifting transmission and nicely balanced handling, excellent straight braking and whisper quiet and smooth suspension. Overall this is a splendid driving automobile in the BMW tradition.
