1972 BMW CS Coupe 3.0 CS 3.0
Superb German sports car
The body likes to rust (standard for this age). The body is constructed to be light and rigid. Well, they failed at Karmann Osnabruck. The carburettors are terrible. Needs special attention.
A complete body restoration, brakes, clutch, starter, radiator and various minor details replaced. Now the interior needs a once over.
Engine is losing compression pressure for 40%. 10% should be maximum. The engine is bulletproof, runs like a horse even with reduced output. What output? 200HP.
The best car ever owned to drive. A real pleasure, worth all the money and effort to restore. A top quality car with maximum reliability. Driving performance is state-of-the-art!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
