My new project - 316 manual

Post by ksd13 » Thu Feb 07, 2019 11:44 pm

Hi everyone. So im new to the E21 scene. Do own a few BMWs. Oldest being an E39 M5. Hoping to keep everyone up to date with progress of my E21 316I MANUAL. 77000 miles. Comes with the original bill of sale as well and service history!

Haven't seen the car as of yet but had someone look at it where it is. Its been garage dry stored for the last 4.5 years. Running and driving car. Most likely will need a overhaul of consumables and perishables.

Bodywork has the rust in common places but doesnt seem like it is major. The car comes with most of the panels that need replacing so thats a good thing. Will know more once it is on a ramp.

Interior is mint. Doesnt really need anything doing.

Plans are to have the body work completely done and respray in original colour. I think it is Polaris Silver. Go through mechanics.

Still undecided as to lower it onto retro alloys and add other oem pieces to make it look the part or keep it fully stock.

What are your guys thoughts? Would love to add value as it is an investment but will be driven!
