As several people suggested I got the wood trim and several other parts from Dan Koturov (AKA the coupe guy). He shipped quickly and was helpful with advice. Thanks to Dan I’m a little closer to having my car on the road :-D:-D. ~ John Buchtenkirch

i purchased and received a wonderful '71 2800cs from Coupeguy. i found Dan to be straight forward + i found him to be honest ... and most importantly, i think his descriptions of the car i bought to be very accurate - i have not found any surprises. He said it was as rustfree as any car he has sold in a while - i have looked everywhere, and its quite clean. i can also tell you that the photos didn't hide anything ... or shoot around bad things.

no matter how good they look, these are 40 year old cars after all. they generally are not fully restored concours cars. i'm sure there could be something hidden within by the way these cars were built ... and i'm sure if you look hard enough there could be an exception to every rule - and i'm sure there might be somebody that had a bad experience. i can't speak to that - i can only speak about my very good experience.

at the end of the day, i'm a happy camper + compared to other cars i looked at, i got a good buy at a fair price.

thanks Dan

Second that for my set of Italian two-color lenses. They were the perfect addition to a CSL that was originally delivered to Italy! Dan's quick responses are appreciated.

I received my new E9 a 3.0CS Sunroof from Dan Koturov in Colorado AKA (COUPEGUY) who BROKERED the sale. Dans description and photos were very accurate.

The car was a RUST FREE Calif car taken to Colorado where it sat for 2 years. Overall the car is very solid and is very straight and complete.

I wanted a nice driver and was hoping for an 8 and got a 7 which I am VERY happy with. Most of the issues with the car that made it a 7 were deferred maintenance because the car ran terrible. Which was not Dans responsibility.

Nothing major was wrong with the car just a bunch of minor tune up issues or just lack of how the car is supposed to be put together. Like there were vacuum hoses connected to the wrong place or just left missing causing vacuum leaks and springs on one carb were missing. After a couple of days of tinkering the car runs GREAT!

Other then a little delay in shipping everything went exactly as planned!

Thanks Dan!

I recall seeing a source for the correct black vinyl some months ago but cannot now locate it. Any ideas, anyone? I am UK based. Any help gratefully received, as always.

+1. I purchased two sets of the Euro turn signal lenses from Dan (one set standard, one set Italian). I learned from BMW that my 3.0 csi was originally delivered to a dealer in Milan Italy, so I had to get the Italian lenses too. Both sets were quickly shipped and were exactly as advertised. Thanks Dan,
John

Thanks guys, I try. I have participated in a lot of different car groups including Porsche, Alfa, Jag, Healey, etc, etc. Owned hundreds of cars and it's clear to me the most honest and straight shooting group are coupe owners, hands down, no doubt. Not sure how this quest to preserve the marque started but I'm glad it did. Good group.

A big thanks to Dan for his help sourcing a '75 csi fjord blue coupe and helping a rookie like me through the transaction. A lot of patience from Dan dealing with numerous questions from me. Car is on a transport on its way to Vancouver and will be here any day now.
Cheers Dan

Dan has been providing assistance and parts for our cars for decades.

I highly recommend him as a reputable provider of all things e9 coupe related.

Dan's helped me out a couple of times with hard to source parts. I usually order from UK and collect in the US and Dan's always come through.
