    Question on a 2800 sedan

    Hi folks - I'm looking for some advice on parts availability for a 1970 2800 4 door.

    I've had various BMWs over the years, but am really drawn to this 2800 but am a bit scared about parts availability.

    Any coaching for me? How is the parts supply?

    Depends on what you are looking for. I doubt if you will find any NOS tail-light lenses or outside power mirrors :-) Seriously, a few things are starting to get harder, but not impossible to find, like clutch slave cylinder stuff. But for the most part, you can find just about any of the mechanical stuff you might need. Uphostery and body stuff is another story, but one of the beauties of the E3 is unless it is a perfect example, you don't have to feel guilty about a few upgrades. Everything from 5-speed transmissions and 5-series seats to a full M porwetrain have been done.

    Tom, If you live in So Cal, recommend three places for parts
    -Coupeking in Wilmington CA http://www.coupeking.com/
    -Mesa Performance in Costa Mesa CA http://www.mesaperformance.com/
    -La Jolla Independent in San Diego http://www.bimmerdoc.com/

    All three shops have an extensive E3 parts list and Mesa Performance gives a 10% discount to all Senior six owners. Recommend you join the Senior six email group at http://www.seniorsix.org/info/sslist.html Ask away for any questions you have concerning your new E3

    70 2800 (Euro spec)
    73 Bavaria, 5 speed, Webers, Alpina's
    73 2002tii Lots of upgrades
