All controls function with precision. Beautifully exquisite and immense fun.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
For those that want true sports car performance and one of the finest 6-cylinder engines, the BMW in-line 3.0-litre power plant is a must. Free revving and silky-smooth, it produces 231bhp and a thumping 300Nm of torque, despatching 0-62 mph in 7.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 149mph. A spotlessly clean engine bay with all factory markings and stickers will please perfectionists. The 5 speed automatic transmission, (Option 205), adapts to current driving conditions and style while the sport mode prompts changes at higher speeds. Steptronic mode allows full clutchless gear changes for absolute manual control.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
M ‘V’ spoke alloy wheels style 72M are 8J x 18 front and 8.5J x 18 rear with branded 225/40 R18 and 255/35 R18 tyres respectively. All four alloys are remarkably clean with no curb damage but the BMW centre caps have slight chips. Massive ventilated front and rear discs with ABS incorporating Corning Brake Control (CBC) offer immense, safe and predictable stopping power.
Registered new on the 1st October 2002 this vehicle has remained with just two owners and covered a cossetted 65,013 miles. BMW Main Dealers, Scotthall of Watford, maintained the vehicle for the first 40,000 miles with a stamped service book and corresponding invoices included in the history file. Specialist servicing with nine further visits help document the service regularity combined with old MOT certificates to warrant the low mileage. All handbooks, spare keys, navigation CD and radio card are contained within the BMW wallet along with a period sales brochure. An utterly absorbing enthusiast car where driving is not just an activity.
