Hello. I am an E28 owner and I am thinking about buying a 1971 3.0CS. I have taken some pics of the car in questions and posted them on a web site. I'd really appreciate it if you could take a look and let me know what you think. also, where are the usual rust places i should check and other things i need to look into.

I might be able to get the car for around $5700US to $6800US. I'd like to know what you think! :)

thanks a lot

Brett,

I see about $10,000.00US worth of body repairs to bring the car up to almost rust free state, without even being close to the car. You must remove all visible and all structureal rust or the car will be a rust repair every 1.5 to 3 years according to reliable sources.

Regretably, 3.0 coupe's aren't really a cheap car to own or drive.

But...

There's really nothing else like driving one.

Pat
