Go halves?

Not sure but I'd say over 5 years even if you left this is a barn you'd double your money.

My neighbour with the E9 has it on eBay. Yesterday he did an open day view and as we discussed it last spring I took a good look. Needs probably 20-25k spent on it and I was going to offer 7500 last year. Current bid is 11k. One guy offered 16k already but the auction has 7 days left. I'll add a link when he puts more pics on it.

Here you go:

Not convinced by M535is.

This weekend just passed, being passably decent weather, must have marked the start of the classic motoring year. We ventured out of London yesterday for lunch with friends in the sticks and passed a surprising number of old wrecks being hauled up the M40 in both directions. Several were unidentifiable pre-1950s things but among the recognisable was a very tatty 1960s S-Type and an exceptionally dusty Dolomite.

Looked at the first photo of that 3.0 CSi and was about to bid until I saw the last few photos. Caveat emptor

The E28 I agree but E12s are a different issue. They are kind of UR M5s as they proved the market for that kind of beast.

Indeed! I thought fuck me that's cheap, what's the catch...... ah, there's the catch...

The E12 has passed through a few hands on another forum I frequent. Needless to say each person sold it on for a lot less than it's up for now.

Well these are the comments I have had at home:

You're not putting that blue heap of shit in our garage; we need the space.

These cars are for single men or those with teenagers that need less time spent with them
(T4 then helpfully pointed out her brothers are teenagers but to no avail)

Oh my god, you saw neighbour's pile of rubbish now you're looking to compete.

I like modern cars with comfort and not stinking of petrol.


So it's back to the "here's your E92 M3 dear" or "I've bought an MV Agusta" or "an NSR 250 MC21 has mysteriously materialised in our garage" from me.

Well my neighbour is clearly an idiot.

His E9 3.0CSi, which as many of you have seen from the photos is little more than a shed, made 21,488 on eBay (a huge amount for what it is IMHO) but didn't meet his reserve. Given a good show car would make 60-70k, that his needs a good 30k spent to get it useable in the real sense I would have said that anything over 20k was a great offer. It's sat in his garage since his daughter was born; she's 24 now.

Buy one on the quiet, put it in the garage under a tarpaulin and see just how long it takes for her to notice. Post the outcome here.
