Hi Everyone,

Mandeep here from London, UK. Recently bought a BMW 3.0 CS, Manual with Sunroof in Silver. The car is fantastic, runs and drives but needs a bit of TLC, so bringing it back to life.

I am hoping I am pick up a few tips and tricks and advice on restoring this car.

If there are any owners around London, close to the Ilford area, please let me know, would love to see a complete car to see what a finish car looks like.

Cheers,
Mandeep

Mandeep Satsriakaal ji,
Welcome!
That makes at least two Punjabi's with an E9!
Looks like a left hand drive and a nice example too!

Welcome to the madness. I bought my car three years ago (after a three year search) and have been restoring it ever since. Fellow e9 owner (and BMW CCA author) Rob Siegel (http://www.robsiegel.com/) wrote a section in his Hack Mechanic book on making an older car reliable that I recommend (https://smile.amazon.com/Memoirs-Hack-Mechanic-Rob-Siegel/dp/0837617200/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1503441345&sr=8-2&keywords=hack+mechanic). In short, he recommends changing certain electrical and cooling system parts before you do anything else.

I am just putting mine back together after restoration. Painfully slow process.
Awesome, would be nice to come check it out. The interior is fully stripped out on mine, and Carbs are out being rebuilt. its slowly coming back together.

Ill drop you a private message.

Congrats!

Weird that I can't see the picture though.
Mandeep, welcome to e9 coupe. Beautiful find! And to the sub-group Polaris Silver. My color and possibly the most popular original color. At least it seems that way to me.
Take a look at the CS Registry. It goes back to the quaint days of the paper newsletter and a time when I bought my 74 CS, Euro, all original in excellent condition for $10,200. Sigh.
