This particular beauty came to us from California, it’s an original CA car that has been maintained by the Beverly Hills BMW dealership most of it’s life and by another BMW Enthusiast (Jim) who did a great job performing some of the upgrades on the car!
Unfortunately, sun and age were not very kind to this babe, so our team of ‘plastic surgeons’ went to work to give this particular example new lease on life and return it to its new glory ! The pictures are worth a thousand words
