    1974 Csi novice

    I've bought a solid CSi. I have discovered it has a 2.8 engine. How do I know how old this engine is. I want to restore the car should I hunt out an original 3 litre engine and where can I find one in France?

    i've been offered by the dealer a trade for new 850i but wont trade

    I would have had his hand off,

    i like the older bmws some are worth more than e9 cs because some e3 are rarer than others also seen one like mine go for $150000 in an auction

    $150,000 is a silly ,silly amount for a e3. That kind of figure will buy one of the very best E9 CSL`s a fantastic 2002 Turbo, and still have enougth cash left over for a Lancia Delta intergrale evo 2, a ferrari 308 gtb, and the odd alfa spider. You cant be for real.....

    I put it down to too much wine a Christmas....

    Dood! Those other keys on the computer

    do something useful -- they provide punctuation, which makes your posts infinitely easier to read. The stream-of-consciousness typing gives me a headache.

    didnt say i thought it was worth that much said i seen one sell for that in an auction i would never pay that much though seen one on tv in i believe it was a bently auction sell for $50000 that was about 6 mos back also saw a 3.0cs in nicer shape than the e3 all around went for $25000 i was puzzled though e9 is nicer car i think should be worth more than e3 or maybe was no market at that auction?

    that in no way makes it woth $150000 dollars, a tad more costly than a ferrari Daytona..... a Lambo Miura..... same price as a Jag xk220 if you think its worth 150k maybe you should consider taking drugs or getting a bit more

    Okay Murray, you sell that for 14k and you will

    have enough money to buy my Alpina B9 clone for 10,500 and I will find another project! ;-) Merry Christmas you old goat. See ya next week. And get that coupe of yours running so I can get my turn at the shop. LOL. All the best to you Murray!

    Re: Intrinsic value--fine bavs finding new homes

    The big bumpered cars are typically a little less sought after Bavs than the small bumpered ones. Three very recent examples FYI

    One--a beautifully restored near flawless and developed thoroubred 1973 went for $16,500--one of the best driving and fun early cars I have piloted down US 1 from Monterey South--hated to give it up.

    Two--a completely original very low mileage 1972--mechanically and cosmetically as new went for a little over $20,000--the nicest original one I have seen and driven.

    Three--am currently doing a major cosmetic and mechanical refurbishing of an original 1973--included is original paint--it is a virtually rust free example--had to replace motor and many underhood items are new or rebuilt to high standards--paint is very good-- interior and trunk are almost as new condition--the remaining list of to do's is getting shorter--when through it will be showable--relentlessly sorted and completely reliable--will be offered at around $14,500 or so.

    Intrinsic value

    i.e., whatever it's worth to you. Bav's are not setting the market on fire. If you wnat more advice, try the Senior Six registry mailing list. Join in the linky.

    1974 bavaria?

    New to the board, just got back in after almost 20 yrs. (1970 1600 and 1970 2002) while looking for a parts car I found a 1974 Bavaria. Any value?
