--> Frank aus Holland
I bought this car in september 2002. The previous owner had it for 11 years and could no longer keep it because of his illness. I am the 3rd owner. It is cecotto number 368 and the color is nogaro silber. The car is equipped with a black leather interior, electric sunroof, electric windows, large OBC, a rear-window sunblind and a BMW sound system [now with Sony cd player]. And it still has the sticker in the window that tells how to drive it the first few-1000km's.
The car was delivered to it's original Dutch owner by the German Garage Kohl in Aachen, the Schnitzer outlet. Although it was delivered by a German garage, the car has had Dutch plates from the start. The car is equipped with Schnitzer suspension [front struts, and springs and dampers all round]. It has Schnitzer nametags and Schnitzer front and rear stressbars. I don't know if it has any other Schnitzer parts. All original BMW struts, springs and dampers came with the car when I bought it. The rear Schnitzer / bilstein shocks were later replaced by yellow Koni's.
The previous owner has put a stainless steel exhaust under the car that gives a nice sound. I have the original damper with the car, but it cannot be put in simply as they have altered the exhaust pipes slightly to fit the new exhaust. I also have a set of nice Mono Toora 17" wheels with the car, but I like the original black BBS better. The Mono Toora's are for sale should anybody be interested and fit any 5x120 BMW pattern.
The car has now done 78.000km, of which I have driven 15.000km in the past 12 months. I plan to keep it for some years to come...
