This car is in auction on The Market website. The auction is LIVE now and finishes on 22nd October. Price is a lower estimate.
All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.
The Turbo body kit and genuine magnesium Minilite alloy wheels hint at its performance potential but you need to lift the bonnet to understand just how quick this BMW 2002 is.
Because there’s a BMW M3 S14 engine from an E30 M3 under there, all 200-odd bhp of it. It’s mated to a proper M3 dog-leg gearbox too and because a lot of the work was done by folk like Cooks Ferry Engineering and Jaymic, you expect that it’s been done properly - and has had plenty of time to bed in.
Freshly repainted and restored three years ago, the rest of the car’s mechanical specification has been upgraded to meet the demands placed on it by all that power. In need of only gentle cosmetic refurbishment, this is your chance to get your hands on a very well fettled BMW 2002 that goes considerably better than any standard factory car ever has…
Originally white, the BMW was painted Cosmos Black back in the eighties. Resprayed again as part of its recent refresh/restoration, it is looking fabulous; black is a notoriously hard colour as it shows every dink, mark and stonechip but this one looks terrific.
This is in large part thanks to its ridiculously well documented bodywork restoration over the years, not least of which was a bill for well over £7,000 for body panels, labour and paint from marque experts Jaymic in 1998.
There’s Zender boot spoiler, which is in a decent condition, plus a genuine BMW 2002 Turbo body kit, which looks wonderful, especially in conjunction with the genuine Minilite alloy wheels. These are 16” in diameter and 7.5” in width and are the proper three-piece split-rims with a magnesium centre.
Costing £1,150 when they were purchased from Minilite itself back in 1993 (around £2,350 in today’s money…), they are in a good condition following a recent refurb by the only company in the UK prepared to work on magnesium wheels, a position that enables them to charge £900 for the work. The wheels themselves are fitted with matching high-performance Falken tyres.
As we will never tire of explaining, our experience shows that matching high-quality tyres are an infallible sign of a caring and mechanically sympathetic owner who is prepared to spend the appropriate amount in maintaining their car properly. Their presence does not, of course, preclude the need for a thorough inspection - something the vendor would welcome, by the way – but it does perhaps give you a shortcut into their attitude towards maintenance.
Work to do is light: the chrome trim could do with being refurbished and the boot lid could do with adjusting to fit a bit better. The vendor also has some new, genuine & rare E10 door mirrors, which are included but need fitting. There are also some small stonechips and minor damage to the front spoiler, which doesn’t show up very well in the photos.
