    75 520 Resurfaced

    ..reseda may be sold Quite like the look of this chinless wonder to fill the space, although it sounds like a world of pain the bodywork dept.. Maybe a good buy if those Green recaros are still worth £4.5K http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121185582641?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 ..this one is heading in the right direction price wise too... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1979-BMW-633-CSi-Coupe-Auto-/161109635908?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item2582e1f344

    Selling up..

    Having not even made Gaydon this year, I'm finally coming to the realisation that I need to move the old gal on If you know anyone looking for an E12 please forward them my email address: rh306(at)yahoo.com. Car has 65,000 miles, one owner before me (a South African chap who had it serviced by pre-war Bentley experts Overton Vehicle Overhauls). I've treated it to a sympathetic body restoration by a Stratstone BMW trained technician last year (pictures on a separate thread) and full mechanical refurb by marque expert Andy Everett.. New MOT last month with no advisories.. It's a '79 520 Auto reseda green.. I've had it valued at £4.5K, so looking for something in that region. (I'm based in North London)

    I haven't had the heart to do a proper for sale ad yet, if I manage that it'll definitely be going Just spotted a potential property purchase out in Kent too which would mean liquidating everything

    ..in honour of this recent weather, I unearthed the old gal last weekend for the first time in ages. I've been having bad thoughts about Silver Shadows recently, I think this one is a long term keeper though..
