Just thought I should say hello. I'm the new owner of 132, bought from 4star a couple of weeks ago.
Absolutely blown away by the car. Fabulously quick, very comfortable and great fun. That Chris Harris video really captures the essence of the car, and I can see why he loves his so much!
It's a very low-owner (but high miles) car, having been bought by the previous owner in the early 1990s and used (and serviced!) very regularly since. 4star have given it a glass-out respray, a suspension refresh, some mechanical work and a new exhaust.
Those of you that saw the advert will no doubt have noticed that it didn't have the front spoiler or badges, and had a slightly odd mix of chrome bumpers and satin window surrounds. Well I've had a brand new chin spoiler and badges (front and rear) fitted and it looks the business. It's brilliant that 25 years on, all the bits are still available from BMW.
It seems the car was factory ordered with chrome bumpers and windows, but the history shows that a previous owner got a BMW dealer to fit the shadow line window surrounds (circa £700 back in 1992). No idea why he didn't get the bumpers and rear lights done at the same time, but I like it as is!
Anyway... my wife and I are off on holiday in it at the end of next week: heading down to Annecy and Chamonix in France, then on to Lake Como in Italy and then up over the border to Switzerland for a few days. Looking forward to racking up some more miles and seeing some ace roads in it!
No doubt I'll be needing some help in due course, but for now: "hi!".
