It also had a Zenith carburetor engine and Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection. The compression was also lowered to 8.3 lbs.--making it considerably lighter than its predecessor. These cars were highly successful in the European Touring Car Championship, where they gained the reputation as a reliable and fast machine.
This BMW 3.0 CSi was manufactured more than 40 years ago and had 20,000 miles on the odometer. It was in great shape for its age, with just over 70,000 miles on its odometer. The interior was well-kept and the wood ornaments were still in good condition. The rust and corrosion issues in the car were minimal, and the vehicle drove incredibly well. The engine still had 150 psi on all six cylinders, making it a perfect choice for a collector's car.
