It is BMW's best-selling model accounting for around 30% of the BMW brand's annual total sales and has won numerous awards throughout its history. Both four-cylinder and six-cylinder petrol engines were used, with a six-cylinder diesel added in 1985.
This sporting manual version, the rare series II 325i, presents in superb condition throughout. The Cirrus Blue exterior is unmarked with the 2.5 litre engine in fine fettle. The convertible roof is in excellent order with a clear flexible rear screen in good condition, under the bonnet also appears as new and shows no corrosion. There is a quick disconnect switch to help preserve the battery during storage. To each corner are perfect BBS wheels with no weights visible to the outside face.
