Extremely rare manual gearbox in a Series 3 coupe is not only impossible to find but is an amazing car to drive with a 12 cylinder engine. Almost all series 3 coupes are automatic transmissions! This maybe why we don't hear how great the manual coupe is to drive; because you can't find any manual coupes (particularly in good condition ). Driving this powerful V12 coupe with manual shift reminds me of a vintage Ferrari GT, or a great gran touring car the past.
Coming out of a private collection, this car is "piece of history" well preserved in original condition, never restored, never had rust issues but painted once for cosmetics, never wreaked or taken apart, always garaged and maintained. The previous two owners left car show plaques dating back as far as 1984, both owners were enthusiast showing the car in shows. I think am 3rd owner ? For a brief period.
30,955 original miles, well maintained condition speaks for itself, engine is excellent, 'sycros'/trans./clutch shifts excellent;the car runs and drives as it should. Interior is excellent original condition, leather is soft with nice color and just a little patina on driver's seat to give the leather some tasteful character. Original radio,original carpeting, and head liner all excellent.
This car is honest with nothing hidden under the paint, nor has it been detailed by professionals to look better on the pictures. It has a great body and the undercarriage super clean almost like it came from the factory. Because the car is an older repaint it is very honest but there is some paint checking under the rear bumper on both sides and in a few other spots, but even so the paint was a great show quality paint job when done years ago. Now the paint needs touched up in these spots, I didn't have it done for fear a buyer may think recent paint work is to hide problems. I have included a can of the original touch up lacquer that will match perfectly (lacquer blends easily ) I was quoted $300. by a painter to do the job, but I know will cost more. I almost forgot the tires have 1600 miles on them,no dry rot. a/c will need serviced, but will be nothing to worry about..
