315 1981 giorgio2g Greece

Hello everyone! I am starting this thread to show you my very own e21! First of all its a 1981 model (according to the car's VIN number). It was my father's first car, he bought it as new in 1985 from a BMW dealership in Düsseldorf. Until 2003 it was our family car, but then my dad bought a new car and this one was stored away...
Until the summer of 2016! That's a turning point for this car, cause that's when i decided that it was time to make my childhood dream a reality and make my dad's e21, my first car also (and my only so far). After a few months of research in January 2017 the process of restoration began. First the car was stripped for a new paintjob and also to repair the rusty points (fortunately there were only a few of those), afterwards new tires, new suspension and the car was ready to hit the road again (and that's what it did :) ).
Of course there are a lot still to be made, but in time i hope to built this car exactly as i visualizing it in my mind. In the imminent future i am going to swap the gearbox, from 4speed to 5speed and then i will have to find why the engine burns oil. Fell free to ask me anything about the car.

Hi Giorgos and once again welcome here mate.
Excellent car, good idea to build it up to your taste- it is a good clean 315: the perfect base to start up with, I can ensure you it is going to give you lots of happy moments driving it
Hope we have the chance to meet for a coffee soon as we are living fairly close, maybe we can arrange two separate roadtrips and meet somewhere in the middle with our E21s :loll
