    what sort of money.....

    hi all, I have recently sold an e28 m535i and am now thinking about getting an e12 m535i. Can anyone give me some guidance as to prices for the various conditions ( rough, good, very good etc...) I might need to pay ? I am looking at left hookers as it seems I may be able to find one of those easier than right hookers,.. Much appreciated.

    sorry to be going

    So guys, after nearly 14 years and about 70,000 miles of fun it looks like I am saying goodbye (at least for now) The e9 restoration is costing me more than I imagined and so need to release some funds and sadly 'Bob' will have to go. Someone came down on Monday and has said that he would like to buy so I trust he is true to his word and am just waiting for the deal to finalise. I really didn't want to sell but needs must. You guys have been a great help over the years - thanks and I plan to come over to gaydon but I will be in a car from the dark side of Audi. I will make sure he knows about the forum and hopefully you will see him as a new member shortly. cheers for now, I am sure I will get another e28 but clearly trying to get a 3.5 again will be tough...... readie

    M535 values ?

    Dear all, does anybody have a reasonable idea of cars values over condition for example, excellent condition at £xx good condition £xxx poor condition £xx etc ? Sadly i am toying with the idea of selling in order to fund finalisation of the e9..:-(
  5. as 'Bob' is now semi retired, took him for a drive to Deal in Kent then cam back and decdied to refurb the airbox - WIP - further to follo...

    I almost got one of these but in the end went to the dark side and got a 2001 Audi s8. Aluminium body, 4.2 v8. Absolute corker.

    body shop required

    Hi All, I am looking for a bit of advise - its not a 5 series but an e9 (forerunner of the six) I am doing up an old e9 and it has already had a load of work done on it (sand blasted, major welding done) and was transported to the paint shop for painting. It was not quite ready for paint and was advised by the garage who did the major work (who I trust) that it had about a week or two of work before paint. The paint shop are now saying there is about 360 hours before paint and have then quoted £20k on top for a paint job. I think this is excessive. The e9 is a bit of a complex car but does anyone out there know of a good bodyshop in south of England I could have a chat with ? Many thanks for any advice.

    Thanks Tims, where are you and do you know any history.?
  22. Any guidance appreciated, I have been offered one which has had an engine and bodywork respray/resto, not to trailer queen standard but usable show standard. I think it is a 1986 model. Any thoughts on what its worth ?

    Hi all, having stripped out the carpet and deadening some years ago to save a few pounds on the track I am now refitting them again to make the car comfy again. I kept all the bits of carpet but cannot seem to see how they fit together. can you guys give me some pictures so I can get a feel. thanks

    How many/what's your E28

    Running good now, mate thanks for asking. For those that don’t know, went to gaydon and my car seemed loud under bonnet than almost all other 28s. Decided to take him round brands hatch, broke a couple of tappets, he did well running against all the young stuff though. Replaced the tappets at local garage then took him down to Fritz and they properly sorted the running and noise. now going like stink again and a little less like a tractor !
