1972 BMW 3.0 CSI

The BMW 3.0 CS and 3.0 CSI were introduced in 1971 and replaced the earlier BMW 2800CS. The engines of both were bored to improve performance and CSI , which arrived later in the year, was built with Bosch D Jetronic electronic fuel injection replacing the two carburetors of the CS and raising the horsepower to nearly 200.
