The headliner, door panels and carpets are in good condition, all of the gauges and controls work well. Known imperfections include the ABS light on intermittently, small section of material missing atop the driver side door panel, driver seat side bolster all messed up, some minor heat cracking on the vinyl dash, some light wear/tear and cracking on the other seat leather, A/C not blowing cold, gear shift lever is loose, tachometer is intermittent and the aforementioned odometer not functioning. Also the tools are missing and the style spare wheel could use new tire installed.THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE This classic BMW starts perfectly with very good running engine, good shifting transmission, good solid braking [but needs the typical hydro accumulator replaced], good tight steering and nice balanced handling. There is some typical wheel shimmy and guibo wear producing light shudder under hard acceleration in first gear. Overall, this budget-priced classic still provides satisfying driving experience.THE DETAILS AND $$$$ 1.
