I recently downloaded the Final Results sheet from the concours event, and was pleasantly surprised to learn that my CSi was the only judged car on the day to score the maximum possible 110 points for originality.
Made my day!!

20 years old today!

This gorgeous car has just turned 20 years old.

She rolled off the Dingolfing line on Monday 14th March 1994 and was registered to her first owner in Hong Kong less than two months later..

To mark this auspicious occasion, I've decided to give her a name - "Sterling Stella".

I think the name 'Stella' suits her, as she is a true star and gets admiring looks wherever she goes!

Happy Birthday Stella!!

Absolutely gorgeous! I had a 91 850i and always drooled over the csi even though I loved my car.

Happy Birthday!

Just a couple of pix from the local car show I attended on Sunday.

Stella was mobbed by American Muscle Cars, but still managed to attract plenty of admirers throughout the day.

I couldn't resist snapping this pic of Stella parked in front of a classy billboard, near my home yesterday.

Thanks Nick

I've been driving her quite a bit lately (taking advantage of the end of a long Indian Summer here), and she's now travelled 28,300 kms (approx. 17,500 miles).
That said, she is still one of the best and lowest mileage CSi's in existence, so I consider myself to be the lucky one!
