Anyone seriously interested will be able to see past the dust and bird shit to the unmolested clean example of a late E12. I can't imagine it needing a ton of work... a ton of detailing, yes. Other than that... some new tires, new fluids, lubricating the brakes, etc etc. If it comes to doing all that work... we will just keep the car!

I don't ****ing understand this forum.

If there are issues with the price, or you have a comment that you think may start controversy, then please use private message (PM).
If you don't like my description send me a PM. Never before have I seen such blatant disrespect for the rules on a forum as in this thread. Nearly all comments in this thread are from people who would have ZERO interest in buying the car regardless of the condition. SO GET THE **** OUT.

I never thought I would see so many panties get bunched up... if you all think a little bit of cutting & welding makes the car ready for scrap then you're ****ed...be a man and learn some bodywork skills. I've seen plenty of E46s with worse rust problems.

Thanks, &

Those are nice. Some euro bumpers, a drop and some wheels and it'd look killer !

Truth hurts or it doesn't hurt and people just think other people are stupid and when said truth is spoken keep up the act.

I think the problem might be about going from: "It is dirty, and needs some cleaning, but is a very solid car" to "if you all think a little bit of cutting & welding makes the car ready for scrap then you're ****ed."

If you started this post with "Nice E12 in need of restoration." i highly doubt we would be having this conversation...That is just IMO.

If you have a 1936 328 I'll take that with some rust on it.

All depends on what you want to do with the car...... I'm pretty sure that from a rust perspective, the car would pass safety fine. New tires, lube brakes and look at rotors/pads, check brake/fuel lines, and change fluids. The other day I saw a video where a black fox body Mustang with paint that had more bird shit caked on was buffed back to life with some quality clay, cutting compound, and polishing... obviously was a lot of work. Again comes down to WHAT you want out of the car.

Would be best to pull engine and clean-up/inspect before initial start-up, but you could probably get away with squirting some quick-start and crossing your fingers. M30s are known to be pretty bulletproof, plus it's not like they are super rare or expensive if worse came to worse....

Not really expecting to generate any sales leads out of this thread (never was after the 1st page) but it certainly is entertaining to see all of these responses..... well at least it's going better than this thread: http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1900632

I'd be interested in purchasing the rear spoiler on the black car if it is for sale.
Please PM me to discuss.
