Award-Winning 1973 BMW 3.0CS Is Pure Eye Candy, But Watch Out For Your Wallet

This 1973 BMW 3.0CS has won multiple awards at the British Columbia Car Club Show, and is currently up for grabs.

It has a Turkis (Turquoise) exterior, 16-inch Alpina wheels, black leatherette interior with wood veneer and some 19,000 miles (30,600 km) on the clock – although, as the ad states, its true mileage is unknown.

Other features include a lowered ride height, Bridgestone Potenza tires, a chrome delete for the wheel arch covers, as the seller removed them (a set of chrome CSL ones is available) and Bosch relays for brighter headlights.

Inside, there are power windows, black vinyl seats with basket-weave inserts and salt and pepper carpets. The seller was the one who added the Alpina shifter, while the hand brake was overhauled in 2009, according to the Bring a Trailer ad. The classic Bimmer also sports wood veneer on the dashboard, center console and door panels, while the AM/FM head unit is said to feature an aftermarket phone adapter to go with new speakers.

As for the 3.0-liter M30B30 inline-six engine, it works alongside a 4-speed manual gearbox and produces 182 PS (180 HP), which for that time was more than adequate. The car also comes with the owner’s manual, car cover, tool kit, and a transferable British Columbia registration.

At the time of writing, the highest bid was $45,000, with five days left to go ’till the online auction ends. This is one car that definitely won’t come cheap; sought-after classic BMWs rarely do.
