yea its hard but u would be better off buying a newer 3 series.........the work ur talking about is very costly
complete bmw restorations depending on scope can cost anywhere from 10-70k. Count on replacing all a/c lines, compressor, condensor, accumulator , labor= 2k right there alone
re-wiring stuff, depending on how extreme you want... it makes my head hurt.
engine rebuild .. count on 3-5k including labor
tranny rebuild.. 2k
nice paint job .. 1-3k
new exhaust .. 800
new suspension (springs, shocks, rubber components, control arms, sway bar links) 1000-4000
new cv joints .. 400
who knows what else might need freshening up.. restoring cars is an expensive bitch. :|
my friends shop just restored a cobra at the cost of $77,000.
