BMW 323i euro rhd
Owner: AsianBond
In registry since: Tuesday, Oct 5th 6:19pm.
Year: 1981
Location: Hong Kong

Just completed an extensive restoration. The original car was in pretty good shape so it made the job much easier. The car used to be red/orange and I chose a Rolls Royce shade of ivory/white which I find more appropriate for the 80\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s car era. The body was fully resprayed with this color inclduing the engine bay and trunk. Most of the trim parts have been replaced with new items. The interior is in very good condition so not much work was needed to be done there. New carpeting was installed locally, nice job. Stock 13\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" bbs gold/silver wheels were repainted silver.

Modifications and tuning
Added the three spoke sport steering wheel which I purchased use from fellow member on this site and had re-covered in China with new leather.

The engine block and heads are from a 90 325i, running with stock k jetronic fuel injection. Very strong mid-range, especially around 4500rpm and from 70mph and up. Since it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s running a three speed auto and with current rear drive set up, the top end is quite limited to around 105-110mph mark.

Rear mufflers are from Italian manu. Bonini and ordered from Wallot Nescth in Germany.

Battery was relocated to trunk

Things to do:

Backdating side mirrors to earlier chrome version
Upgrade to 15\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" wheels
Upgrade shocks and springs
Install audiophile sounds system

Original Hong Kong delivered car in the rust like color.
