    Some one run the VIN thru the dealer network get it's build history.. Blue87325ic?
    Yeah - I can run the VIN, just need the last 7 digits. Sweet looking car no matter what. Wouldn't a euro car have sidemaker lights on the fenders?

      very clean car i must say, and also, those seats are U.S. model seats. here in germany, they didnt get the vinyl ones. still nice ass car though.

      there are alot of "interesting" things about your euro car
      first off, you are running an ETA radiator
      cruise control, which the cable is mounted wrong is VERY RARE over here
      and AC is even more rare, esp. on an 86 MODEL.
      you got yourself a really cool, very dif. car. keep it that nice and in 20 years it will hopefully be like a Yenko Chevrolet Nova!

      I knew the seats had been swapped, but the rear seat still had the build sheet stapled to it when I removed it a month ago.

      Why is the cable mounted the wrong way? Details?

          Ok, actually I will somewhat. If you look further up this thread, TUD mentioned that he was actually looking for a later model iS or iX-and I know for a fact his search has been going on for about two years. This car became available, I told him DO IT!-and smart guy that he is, he did. However, believe it or not, right after the purchase he was second guessing his decision because it was not an iX like he really wanted (and needed for his intended purpose)-and he had thoughts of selling this car to me.

          But if you can believe this-as bad as I wanted it-I did my best to TALK HIM OUT of selling it to me. I knew how much he would kick himself in the cherries if he did-and he now realizes it more than ever. For one thing, you don't find many actual TRUE Euro cars here in the U.S. (imported brand new I might add)-and you damn sure won't find them with as few miles and as clean of a condition as this one.

          So, let's just put it this way-cars such as this get top dollar! Now I am just waiting for TUD to pry his '88 M3 back from BMW's Zentrum display so he can get a family pic!
          Haha thats crazy! I'm sure this car was worth every penny...i know i would pay top dollar for a car like that as well.

          Its a good thing this one was purchased by another enthusiast

            Well, thankfully, it seems they posted the sidemarkers on the trim instead of making a big hole in the all of the 1/4s.

              To comply to DOT standards it did have them in the bumper at one time. They were later removed and the Euro side bumper trim was added.

                    A family friend at out local BMW Center ran the VIN. It is not in the DCS.. This maybe due to the fact that the first owner had an independent BMW repair shop.

                      I love it. Nice car. Maybe it's your driveway angle, but it does look like it could be just a smidge lower. Don't know what state you're in and their plate laws, but I think that front bumper is calling out for a euro plate.

                        It is the driveway. ;-) It would make my E34 look the same way.

                            Do the Fogs work with the highs on? If the jumper in the K9 section is there they might. Be cool if they did.

                            Old Skool H1/H1 Love the look as Smiley's are truely looking old as everyone has them.
