Thanks for the price info! Lot62 seems to be a Landy, hence £5200 possibly refers to Lot68's white shark: https://whitelabel-2.globalauctionplatform.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/ncm/catalogue-id-ncm-au10227/lot-db89ace3-d979-4c2c-b409-aae401589145 Thats correct, the white e24 was lot 68 , my mistak...

I have an original that I could send to them. If any more interest we might be able to do a bulk order.

#195. He's hoping for around £15K. Chain apparently done as he has receipts.

Not been used for about 9 years so will require complete re-commissioning and putting back together.

The seller is an E type specialist. https://www.automo.co/

Re: Blaupunkt Montreux rdr49 radio.

Is there any particular reason you want the Montreux? Units were fitted at dealers as BMW didn't fit them from the factory. Pretty sure I've not got one but have a look at this lot. http://bigcoupe.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=25791&p=183719&hilit=blaupunkt#p183719 http://bigcoupe.com/phpBB2/view...

Am I right to assume this unit is in some way linked to the under seat relay and controls the range of travel of the headrest. Does anyone have...
