This right-hand drive BMW 3.0 CSL is one of the so-called 'Drive Back' cars that were collected directly from the Munich factory by UK distributors in October 1972 and driven back to this country for sale. In September 1989 the BMW was offered for sale at an auction in Brighton where it was purchased by the immediately preceding owner, Mr Mark Miller. The car had previously been restored over a three-year period by Homesdale Motor Traders Ltd of Bromley, Kent, who completed the rebuild - using genuine BMW parts - in 1987. When purchased in 1989, 'LMB 4L' had covered fewer than 300 miles since the restoration's completion. Homesdale's work schedule is on file together with a copy of the auction catalogue.

The current enthusiast owner purchased the BMW from Mr Miller in August 2015, since when it has formed part of his private collection, being regularly serviced but used only sparingly. 'LMB 4L' benefits from a new full exhaust system - a genuine BMW part supplied by Cooper Cobham BMW. Finished in Verona Red with black interior, this well presented car is offered with sundry bills, MoT to May 2017, and a V5C registration document.
