Completed in September 1996 as a new 1997 model, WBADE6323VBW53269 was sold new to its first and only lifelong owner on October 18, 1996 through Momentum BMW of Houston, Texas. The original purchase paperwork, window sticker, subsequent servicing records, and meticulously documented history from 1996-2020 accompanies the vehicle as a testament to its pampered and thoughtfully preserved life thus far. In addition to all the aforementioned accompanying original accessories, the car retains original paint, all BMW etched glass, original upholstery, trim and auxiliary equipment – for what appears to be an exceptionally tidy, complete and coddled example for continued enjoyment. A Summer 2020 service included new Michelin Premier tires, along with new front control arms.
