A friend of mine is considering buying a 1972 2002 tii, which is listed on eBay here
. He will be working on it, fixing the engine, rust, etc.
Obviously he would have to find out the condition of the frame, engine, drive linkage, suspension, tranny, the extent of the rust damage, etc. Assuming there's nothing fatally wrong with it, what would be a reasonable price to offer? What sort of problems should he look for?
My friend is mechanically inclined, having been a mechanic and car salesman for 30+ years, but I don't think that he's specialized in Bimmers. I have been interested in BMWs for a while, but lack the background he has.
Any general tips would be appreciated.
