Beschreibung | Description
The car was imported in Moldova by an old man in 1995. He owed it for 13 years. In early '2000 he replaced the engine with an M20B20 L-Jetronic (from an '84 E30) and repainted it in green (not original). The car was well preserved during this period and no other modifications were made. The car came with a Grundig WKC 2535 radio cassette (produces since '77) and also Grundig front audio speakers.
In 2008 it was sold to a club member, who drove it for 4 years and didn't make any changes (regular maintenance and repairs only).
I bought it September 2012. Since then, I replaced the interior, taken from a well preserved '79 518i (seats, carpet and dashboard) and installed french yellow headlights. Suspension, brakes and engine were fixed in order to be prepared for long trips.The car is a weekend summer drive, kept in a garage. We regularly attend BMW and classic events in Moldova and nearby countries, classic rallies. In 2016, we attended 100 Years Festival in Munich, a 4000 km trip in one week.
