Unhappy

Have just bought a 1989 , 316i to do up as a project. It has a (supposed ) genuine 84,000 on the clock. It has just passed an mot with no problems, although it is having the clutch master cylinder replaced today. It is finished in delphen grey metallic, and apart from a few spots of rust and a new offside front wing the body is in pretty good nick. The interior is clean apart from ripped bases on the drivers and rear seats.
I intend to do the bodywork and rust myself, (having taken off a scrap wing i now know how to put one back on again}, but i am unsure as to weather or not i would make a profit should i decide to sell when job is finished ???
AM I THROWING GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD ?????????

you have come to the right place, my friend. Driving a BMW is awesome. After doing all the work, and driving it for a while, you may decide to keep it. Good luck, and if you have problems, chances are that someone on this site has had them too. Have fun, these cars are a blast.

R.I.P fast 6


Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

You don't restore an old car because you want to make money on it. You do it because you like or love the car and want to. Buy it ...enjoy it..do what you want to do to it and sell it for what you can when your tired of it.
