This particular M1 was purchased new in Belgium by a British diplomat, Mr J Wolfe, who brought it to the UK. There is a BMW (GB) invoice on file, dated February 1981 and made out to Mr Wolfe, for unspecified repairs costing £4,238. Subsequently the car was registered in the UK (in April 1989) as 'KCH 457V', passing via Sytner of Nottingham Ltd to the second private owner, Richard Turner of Gillingham, Dorset in October 1991. The M1 then passed via Classic Automobiles Ltd of Wandsworth, South London to the last owner in Spain in April 1994 who kept the car until 2015 in a garage with air condition (sales invoice on file). Since acquisition, the car has covered some 47,000 kilometres, the current odometer reading being 62,580km. The owner has not needed to do much to the M1, confining himself to replacing the fuel lines, water hoses and hydraulic hoses (eight years ago) and replacing the steel sump with a stainless item. Otherwise un-restored and original, the car is offered with the aforementioned bill and sales invoice, copies of old UK registration documents, and Spanish registration papers. The current owner bought #1080 in 2015 and serviced the car at BMW Classic in Munich.
