Searching for a classic BMW but the 2002 isn't your cup of tea? MotoeXotica Classic Cars has a solution for you as it gladly presents this European-spec 1972 BMW 3.0 CS Coupe.

Under the hood is BMW's 177HP M30 3.0L inline six-cylinder engine with twin carburetors hooked to a Getrag four-speed manual transmission.

Dressed in Chamonix White paint has some minor blemishes on the A-pillars and the nose has some discoloration underneath the chrome trim and a few small blemishes but is solid overall. The car's windows are in good order, intact and with no haze. All of the lights are present and crack-free. Car rolls on BMW five-slot wheels wrapped in Firestone Affinity tires, 195/70R14. All of the body panels are straight, the engine bay, with its rebuilt carbs and powder-coated intake manifold, is tidy and the battery looks new. Car also has a nearly complete toolkit on underside of trunk lid. Chrome trim looks bright, and the bumpers look to be in good condition. Exterior rubber on the window seals and bumper trim was likely replaced in the past.

Inside, this E9 comes with European Market blue cloth seats that are in very good condition. The large and wide front buckets are comfortable and the metal hardware on the sides glistens in the sunlight. The wood inlays at the front edges of both doors display lacquer blemishes but the carpet is in good condition, as are the headliner, steering wheel, shift lever and center console. Car has manual windows in front but power windows in the rear. The dash is original but has a hairline-sized crack near the driver's A-pillar. A JVC AM/FM stereo with detachable faceplate and Pioneer and Sony speakers round out the interior. Driver assist features include power windows.

This car was delivered from the Munich factory to BMW Ditting in Ludwigsburg, Germany in October of 1971. A man in Medford, Oregon, owned this car from April 2013 until July of that year when he sold it to a man in Van Nuys, California. In January of 2014, the California owner had the car painted white. In December 2014, he ordered various trim pieces for the car.

The current owner from Porter Ranch, Californiapurchased this four-speed manual car in early 2015 and had it inspected and serviced by the BMW specialists at Bavaria Auto Repair in Sun Valley, California.After a thorough inspection, the owner had the center steering link, the drive shaft center support, drive shaft and an exhaust gasket replaced (undated ticket). In February 2015, he ordered additional trim pieces. In March 2015, he had the engine oil and filter changed plus the transmission and rear differential serviced.

The previous owner cannot confirm the duration of time the vehicle has been in California as previous ownership history is unknown, however the BAR sticker on the door jamb suggests it has been in the state for quite some time.
