Im a 2002 owner and regular on the 2002 board who is starting to come down with a bad case of the e9 bug.
I bought my 02 w/o the benefit of reading up on the subject, and have paid the price for my ignorance. I'd rather not make the same sorts of mistakes twice.
So I'd appreciate any links/book recommendations/etc that would be appropriate for someone who is used to wrenching older bmw's but completely ignorant regarding the E9 coupes.
Look at www.bmwcsregistry.com. Coupes are considerably more complicated and expensive than 02s. Rust is even more of a problem. Interiors are wood and leather, but very expensive to fix. Mechanically, they're not all that different, just that everything is bigger!
