Hello all,<p>I would like to buy 7 series E23. I live in Europe. Any expiriences, suggestions about model, what is average petrol consumption, does those E23 deive on lead or unlead fuel, what are most common failures and are they essential? I'm very good in electronic, and know a little bit of mechanic, but with good service manual, there should not be problems. I currently drive 316 '86.<br>If you can tel me something about european prices, I'll appreciate it. Also it would be good to compare European and non uropean prices.<br>(I apologize for language and gramatic)<br>Thanks all.........<p>Ivo

I have had 2 x 85 models in UK. First one went when the rear suspension needed a complete rebuild. That is now the parts car.<p>The new one is a one owner, 5 speed in very nice condition, cost GBP()2000.00. Muffler is starting to leak, I hope the cat is OK.<p>No other major problems.<p>Gas mileage about 20 miles/gallon<p>If you find a service manual, let me know, I have been searching for one for 2 years. I have found an E32 one, but not a E23 one.
