The BMW 3.0 CSi project has come a long way recently. The engine is in the the fuel injection system has been installed. The car will be running on a triple set of Jenvey throttle bodies with an Emerald ECU. We’ve fitted the car with a set of Bilstein shock absorbers, uprated springs and poly bushes. Next up is the 5-speed gearbox conversion and to finish of the engine install.
We’ve just started on another classic BMW Coupe. This one is a German market LHD 3.0 CSi. The car was in pretty good condition overall. We found a little rust in the out sills and the front passenger footwell. Rust removed, we are putting a new set of outer sills on the car and a new floor pan. The existing paint has been removed to reveal some very straight panels. The car will be prepped and painted in BMW Atlantic Blue. We are also building a 3.5 litre fast road, fuel injected engine for this. Should be a cracking car when done. Watch this space for updates.
The BMW 3.0 CSL road car restoration is in the bodyshop this week getting fitted up with the Batmobile body kit. Front and rear spoilers, roof hoop, rear wing and black GRP rear bumper.
