1995 BMW 840 CI Auto



1995 BMW 840 CI Auto

The vendor has supplied the following information.

The car was first registered to a lady owner in Kent in August 1995. She kept the car for about 16 years, driving a total of about 63,000 miles in that time. The car seems to have been kept in a garage most of that time. I believe that she sold it on to a new owner in Cheshire, who only kept it for a short time before selling it to a garage in Bradford, from where I bought it in March 2013. I have had a considerable amount of work done on the car, including the renewal of much of the suspension, fuel and brake lines, steering box and hydraulics and exhaust.  The car has been my main vehicle for the last 6 years, during which time I have driven it about 40,000 miles travelling between Leeds, Stafford and London in connection with my work together with a number of extended motoring holidays in the UK. 

I have added the following to the car:

  • Tracker
  • Rear parking sensors
  • A modern DAB/CD/Bluetooth radio system (I have the original radio)
  • A full size cover

The car has a few minor issues which will need to be sorted before it could be got back into showroom condition:

  • Air conditioning receiver needs replacing and the system re-gassing
  • The forward tilt mechanism on the passenger seat is jammed so that it is not easy to get into the rear seat
  • The LED system (temperature sensor, etc) is becoming indistinct
  • The main key will not start the car.  I understand from a specialist locksmith that it does not communicate with the immobiliser, although the remote entry and ignition systems all work with it.  The car starts and runs on the spare key.

On site now for viewing.

 We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.
