I love my 630, but for pure driving pleasure, I'll take my 528i or e any day. I just happen to prefer two doors.

So, how much do you think it would cost to move the center post back 6 inches and lengthen the front doors accordingly on these renditions of e12 and e28 coupes. Anyone game?

(Ready for the flames!!)

Well,BMW promised us a 5 series coupe years ago,and I REALLY like the last of your three ideas,but the only sedan structurally stiff enough to take the cut is the e34,unfortunately,not the e28....not enough there to break up and still be safe....wish it was....
just bought my fourth e28 and working on #5 for spring(white '88 "is")
