Will you be going to Stoneleigh in this? I would love to see this up close in it's current state to get an idea of how they are put together.

Learn from the mistake of the yellow 250 on eBay. Keep it simple and subtle and you will appeal to many more buyers when you eventually come to sell it.

The side windows really improve the looks, I never liked the fact that the windscreen looked too high in relation to the side windows. Are the side windows glass or plastic?

Is that yellow one still on ebay? Can't seem to find it and would love to see what it would look like in yellow.

Gracias! I'm weird so kinda like it Just get rid of the whitewalls and that would improve it 100%. When I build my Coupe I'm going for yellow and 16inch bolt on Image wire wheels, and with the car lowered like a Competizione, life's too short to worry about resale

The white walls look very American market style

Build quality looks high , different set of wheels would completely change the look of that

I’d like to see a coupe in yellow

The side windows are plastic but it is a coated product that is supposed not to mark (easily) , i will not be going to Stoneleigh as starting the drive down to Italy to watch this years Mille Miglia , thanks Geoff .

Not a fan of the yellow paint but the interior is pretty good, the door cards and tunnel top look the part, BMW gauges are a bit of a comprise though.

At the price- so are the bolt on non Borrani wheels and the non-Marchal spot lights. Nothing that another 6k wouldn't put right.

I agree about the interior,

It does look to have been done to a good standard, ref the gauges I am not too sure how easy it is to get the old style to work with the modern BMW set up, is there a kit to sort it available yet ?

I have a similar dash for my 250 SWB but may alter it a touch to try and lose the curve that gives the BMW origins away.

The colour will be marmite as with so many colours.

Oh and if you are reading this Geoff I will get your mouldings out to you this week, apologies for the delay.

non-Marchal spot lights

I have some genuine Marchals with at least one of the original boxes if anyone wants to piss pounds in the wind...

The difference colour makes to a car is INSANE.
Also on the bay of ‘E’ at the moment...

I know where I would park my money (and the car isn’t yellow!). That said, it may suit a coupe better.
Wish I was still based in the UK...

A chance to buy the Borrani wheels and the Marchal spot lights with the change.

I have seen the yellow one in automotivenostalgia a couple of times and it is done to a high standard. The yellow looks so good up close that I’m doing mine the same haha
