    Hello,

    I ame Heikki and living in Belgium. Bought this Nevada CS about one year ago.
    The car was first registrated in Switzerland in 1969.Then it went to Holland, where it was bought by a Belgian who did a restoration of the body.The car went back to Holland where it was for sale at a classic bmw shop.
    Meanwhile this year i overhauled the rear suspension,put 17" BBs rs wheels,nardi steering wheel, stainless steel sport exhaust.At the moment i ame busy building a new engine, overhauling the front suspension.
    A 5-speed gearbox is waiting to be installed with the new engine.

    Greetings from Belgium

    Hi Heikki. Nice to see your car; it looks very clean and well maintained.
    Where about are you located?

    I'm in the Netherlands, close to the Belgian border. A few, 4 or 5 e9's here in the Eindhoven area.
    Our cars actually share some history, as also my car was sold & registered first in Switserland, before coming to the Netherlands.

    Any more pics of your restoration works?
    Erik

    Lovely car. Nice and clean.

    One question. What brand is your stainless steel exhaust and how do you like the sound?

    exhaust is made on the car for perfect fit by a guy in my neighbourhood who makes exhausts for rally cars...
    Nice sound deep but not too loud. Will make some pics soon..

    Lovely car! Although those look like BBS RC wheels (I should know; I have a set).

    Hi Heikki,

    Is it possible that I saw you on Saterdaymorning in Kotrijk? You were driving direction Zwevegem.
    If it was you, I have to congratulate you with your car. It looks stunning! Looks even better in real life!
    For me it was actually the first time I saw an E9 driving in real life. :)

    Hope to see some more of it!

    Greetings, Jens
