BMW introduced a new two-door coupé that was built for BMW by Karmann in 1968 and production lasted until 1975. Named internally as the BMW E9, the first model to be produced was the 2800 CS which replaced the earlier 2000 C and 2000 CS coupé models. The wheelbase and length were increased to allow the engine bay to be long enough to accommodate the new straight-six engine, code-named M30, and the front of the car was restyled to resemble the E3 sedan. The 2800 CS used the 2,788cc version of the engine used in the E3 sedans and produced 170hp. Not only was the 2800 CS lighter than the preceding 2000 CS, it also had a smaller frontal aspect, further increasing the performance advantage. The 2800CS was replaced by the 3.0 CS and 3.0 CSi in 1971. The engine had been bored out to give a displacement of 2,986. It was offered with twin carburettors in the 3.0 CS which produced 180hp, or with fuel injection in the 3.0 CSi which produced 200hp. Both cars were available as either a four speed manual or automatic. Performance of both the 3.0 CS and 3.0 CSi was very competitive compared with contemporaries.

Finished in Fjord Metallic with complimentary blue leather interior, a colour combination that is well suited, this example is a very rare CSi edition. Owned by the current vendor for the past 10 years, in 2009 he commissioned renowned BMW specialists Jaymic to complete a full mechanical restoration, this involved all pipes, electrics, and hoses replacing, an engine rebore and new pistons. The CSi has covered just 4,000 miles since and bills in the history files amounting to over £10,000.

In late 2016 the decision was undertaken in consultation with a prominent BMW enthusiast club member that further restoration including a bare metal repaint, re-chroming, new windscreen and runners, full wheel refurbishment with new tyres, new leather interior re-trim with all wooden trim fully refurbished would all take place. The suspension has also been overhauled with new Bilstein shocks absorbers and the cylinder head replaced and rebuilt at a cost of £1,600 before the fuel injection system was upgraded. The old fuel pressure sensors were therefore removed and replaced with a  the new Emerald modern electronic fuel management system so to be more compliant with modern fuel. Finally the engine bay was detailed before a tally up revealed £15,000 of further expense.
Having been always garaged, the vendor recently had a compression test which can be found in the history file showing 170psi from the four speed manual as it would have done from factory, quite an achievement for a 44 year old vehicle and credit to both the owner and Jaymic. Having been comprehensively restored under the stewardship of a prominent BMW enthusiast club member with no expense spared  and benefiting from the purity of a manual gear box, this is a wonderful opportunity to own an increasingly sought-after car.
