Appendix:
I have owned E57 for about twenty years and covered many road and competition miles in that time.
It has been rallied competitively including three Classic Marathons through Europe into Italy.
It has been hillclimbed and raced in the Isle of Man, at Silverstone, Castle Combe, Snetterton, Goodwood.
It has been used for touring holidays in Britain, Ireland, France, Germany, Switzerland and Italy.
The car is in very original condition and I have been careful to leave it in mechanically standard condition.
