|Odometer reading||77,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,480|
The BMW 3 Series has been manufactured since May 1975 and has been produced in five different generations, in no less than five different body styles. It is BMW's best-selling model accounting for around 30% of the BMW brand's annual total sales (excluding motorbikes). The four-door 3 Series (E36) was produced from early 1990, initially for sale in Europe only and was introduced to other worldwide markets later. The Coupé was produced from 1991, with the Cabriolet version following a year later. Both four-cylinder and six-cylinder petrol engines were used, with a six-cylinder diesel added in 1985.
This super BMW 328i Convertible was supplied new by BMW Cheyne in 1997 with a long list of options including manual gearbox, climate control, on board computer, electric windows, centre arm rest, rear parking sensors and CD player. Finished in Montreal Blue Metallic with black leather sport seats and blue power soft top, this BMW has always been dry stored in a garage and was in the same family since 2002. It is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in May 2018, two keys, the original book pack containing the drivers manual and service book which shows the service history at 7,518 miles, 18,375 miles, 27,602 miles, 27,602 miles, 33,397 miles, 43,693 miles, 52,760 miles, 62,033 miles, 71,548 miles and recent oil change. The car also comes with a file containing receipts and every MoT test certificate that has been issued. This is an original, unmodified and much cherished example.
