Cars of the Month

The Car of the Month for April belongs to:
Ashley Naidoo

  • Model: E12 M535i, South African Spec.

  • Date: 1983

  • Exterior Color: Henna Red

  • Interior Color: Beige

  • The Overview
    Ashley's car is from South Africa, one of the few continuation versions beyond the 1981. This car is obviously well kept as evidenced from from the polished paint to the manicured interior.

    Ash is the third owner. The first owner took excellent care of the car and drove it about 120,000 Km. The car changed hands and Ash bought it from a mate and has put about 2000 Km on her so far. She gets washed at least one a month and waxed every three months. The trailer hitch is factory original. A BMW mechanic noted that the original governor is still on the car.

    The car is in original condition. Ash keeps her safely under a carport with a car cover. He has no intentions of changing anything. A new standard exhaust system is slated for the future.
