    Lovely looking car. Good buy for a collector/future investment with those miles. Little to rich for me as well I'm afraid. Maybe next time!! :confused:

    Very nice

    Is it me, or do those seats look a little grubby?

    Or is that the design of them...

    I think I'm correct in saying that there were a few RHD conversions

    Would that devalue them not being standard?

    It is well known that the 1987 black Monday contributed to the poor sales of the £40k Z1, it was an expensive luxury in a financial crisis. Never intended for the UK market and in LHD format also put many off. Step forward Dave Iles of Griffin Motorsport, who took up the challenge when approached by a local BMW fanatic to convert one of the first off the production line for his wife, who refused to drive it, he wanted a full RHD conversion and Hartge 2.7 upgrade.

    I just noticed it's worth about £1 per mile it's done. My 2.2 is worth and equivalent £108,300 :D

    Well, if 28 of you send me £1,000 we'll all have a 29th share in it, about 12.5 days per year each. Form an orderly queue please...;)
