Vehicle History


Originally purchased from Ocean BMW by my uncle who drove less and less until it was driven little more than to the MOT and back. Kept undercover all its life, never intentionally wet. Purchased from him recently and stored since. It has original books, tools history folder, double keys, spare. The car was serviced by BMW Plymouth and then by the people who MOT'd annually. Although the original service book was mislaid, the documents clearly show its nominal mileage. Never painted, crashed or abused, kept covered undercover.
