Time to up your stated values with your respective insurers :-"

I'm not sure if that's really buffalo hide seats, and that Supersprint exhaust is hanging a bit on the low side, otherwise, what a beauty :lol:

I wonder what a dead paint and rusty E24 is worth? LOL.

I'd say a rising tide lifts all boats, but mine doesn't float. Too many holes #-o

Ken,
Think of it this way, every problem that you fix is worth something.

Very nice car!
Imported from Germany when it was almost new (100km).
It is strange that that was allowed during these days as the US versions needed to have catalytic converters and special bumpers. Or was a cat fitted when it was imported?

Paul, The DOT (US Department of Transportation) process varied greatly, depending on what state you live in, even what county, at least here in California :-k

One of our locals who owns a Euro M635 registers it in a county that still doesn't require smog checks, if you can believe that :roll:

But he's on borrowed time and he knows it :-"

The process did require reinforcements to be welded behind the bumpers, in the doors, additional side marker lighting, US headlamps, MPH speedo, even the word "Light" had to be changed in the dash where the headlight switch is :-({|=

We see all sorts of conversions still to this day here, some better than others :-?

Thanks for that information Bobbo, I was not aware of that.
How crazy is that, so much differences within one country... :-?

We have to make some modifications too. When I imported my E24 from the US, the side markers needed to be removed and the head lights needed to be changed. That was it though.

I was aware of the variety in conversions, remember this one (sadly the link is death now)?
It was a Euro with US spec bumpers installed.
