BMW 3.0 CSi premieres at the BMW Welt -- First restoration from BMW Classic Center

BMW 3.0 CSi premieres at the BMW Welt. The first full restoration of the new BMW Classic Center is handed back to its delighted owner.

Munich. Wednesday, 7 July 2010 was a red-letter day. The 1972 BMW 3.0 CSi which had been completely restored by the BMW Classic Center’s new Customer Workshop was handed back to its owner at BMW Welt. There was twofold cause for celebration: the BMW Classic Center was pleased at having successfully completed its first full restoration since the opening of the BMW Classic Customer Workshop, while BMW Welt marked the first occasion on which a classic BMW – rather than a brand-new car – was delivered to a customer. “The successful restoration of the BMW 3.0 CSi shows that we are on the right track and that, together with our partners within the BMW Group network of facilities, we are capable of restoring vehicles to the highest quality standards and to individual customer specifications,” said Ralf Vierlein, Head of Sales and Aftersales at BMW Group Classic.

In this case, the customer wanted his BMW 3.0 CSi of 1972 transformed into a perfect state. He also asked for its four-speed manual gearbox to be converted into an automatic, something that had previously been done only with two prototypes of the BMW 3.0 CSi. Based on close collaboration with the BMW Group Archive, which provided the relevant documentation, the “large Coupé” underwent an authentic conversion process. It was fitted with an automatic transmission from a BMW 2.8 CS. The refit and complete overhaul of the vehicle required months of research and countless hours of manual labour. The experts at the BMW Classic Center not only had to repair substantial bodywork damage, but also iron out technical and electronic defects as well as thoroughly overhaul the interior fittings. The vehicle is now in A1 condition.


BMW Classic Customer Workshop: one-stop shop for all services.

BMW Classic’s Customer Workshop is a response to the growing desire among numerous BMW enthusiasts to own an authentic vehicle that is as true as possible to its original state and in the best possible condition. “This workshop is a key element in the realignment of BMW Classic and our orientation towards customers in the classic vehicle market,” says Karl Baumer, Director of BMW Group Classic.

In parallel with this, the supply and remanufacturing of components is being further expanded. Other areas have also been added, such as the purchase and sale of vehicles, authentication certificates, advice to buyers, and a worldwide collection and delivery service. The principal advantage of the BMW Classic Center is that it offers all its services under one roof. “We have the theoretical knowledge of the vehicles, the technical expertise, Original BMW Parts, and the requisite infrastructure to systematically link it all up,” adds Ralf Vierlein.

In future, too, vehicles that have been fully restored by the BMW Classic Center can be handed over to their owners amid the unmatched ambience of BMW Welt. A “delivery” of this kind is not just a unique experience for the owner, but a particularly striking example of the successful symbiosis of past and present within the BMW Group.

Further information on the Classic Center is available at www.bmw-classic.com

Looks beautiful though I must say, their 328 Kamm Coupe restoration project (the car that was fully rebuilt as original was destroyed) was even cooler! (http://www.bmw-classic.de/2/webmill.php?id=708950)

It is good to see the results of true professionalism. Going by the pictures, the restoration is nearly perfect. IMO the replacement of the original manual transmission with an automatic is sacrilegious.

Stunning work. Can't wait to get my own 3.0 CS. I found this gorgeous 1974 example on Ebay a couple of weeks ago worth taking a peek at:

Listing has expired, I believe the reserve was not met.

Cheers and Viva BMW!

That 3.0 looks amazing. I've always liked the 3.0 CS and CSL models. It is rather sad that the 4MT was replaced with an automatic though.

Great looking restoration! =)

Is that a E90 in the background? The reflectors, headlights, wheels, and the mirrors seem to match the look of a E90. But dang that yellow stands out!

Beautiful car. I wonder what the cost is for something like that? It must be insane with all the labor time involved.
