Classic Car Auctions says:

Finished in the most sophisticated colour combination of Dolphin Grey metallic with Ivory/champagne leather interior.

The E24 was a worthy successor to the previous E9 3.0 CSi coupé. It was built between 1976 and early 1989 with the inevitable mechanical development but no major external changes. The distinctive 'shark nose' of the E24 is still a thing of beauty even now, and no BMW has ever been so distinctive or so elegant, a balance that the following 8-Series and later 6-Series failed to attain. Towards the end of production, the emphasis changed to luxury with the introduction of the 'Highline' interior option from mid-1987, and this included hand-stitched Nappa leather on the seats, door panels, centre console, glove box, roof lining, sun visors, door pillars, upper door trim and dashboard.

This high specification car is supplied with a large history file which includes 20 previous MoT certificates, invoices and receipts for around £3,000 spent since April 2013 by the current owner, original BMW service booklet showing 20 stamps, pre-delivery, running in, BMW Oil Service, BMW Inspection and BMW Annual Check.

Supplied initially by Rydale Birmingham, it was first registered in August 1988, has been enjoyed by 5 lucky owners and is currently reading 129,688 miles. These cars are so complete in the way they look, handle and go and when properly set up and maintained are an absolute delight to drive. Have a good look at this delightful example.
