There are some small issues as outlined below, none of which affect the daily operation of the car and all of which I am continuing to address - so the status may be updated periodically. All items below are common for an BMW of this vintage and are not deal breakers.
Issues: power steering fluid leak (just hose, not pump) - seat twist - phantom brake pad sensor warning (brakes are fine) - pass. side rear window not working (needs new motor/regulator) - headlamp power adjust non-functional (possible cause of phantom errors) - ACS bumpers are cracked but fully repairable (no missing material) - paint needs a proper polish/restore.
The previous owner did some lighting work on the car, some of which you can see in the photos but I have reversed: DRL's, front side markers, rear high centre brake light and rear side relectors.
Spare parts to be included (may get installed before sale):
- 2 new O2 sensors (bosch)
- new driver's door moulding
- new steering arm
