1976 BMW 3.3Li: David Davies

David Davies has been a long-time fan of the BMW 7 Series, but what to do when you fancy something a bit older? That's how David ended up with his 3.3Li, which he considers his dream car.

When looking to buy the car just nine months ago, David says the 'time-warp' condition of the car grabbed his attention immediately and it was love at first sight.

David initially had some reliability problems to contend with, some leaking fuel lines and dodgy electrics, but since those issues have been solved he is loving the experience.

Well aware of the cars rarity, being one of just two 3.3Li Automatics currently on UK roads, David plans to keep the car as original as possible with only the wheels differing from factory specification. The car currently wears 16-inch Alpina alloys that are larger but otherwise identical to the originals (which David has locked away).
