Where can I find out about my E9, in particular?

BMW Classic maintains records on all the coupes produced, so if you can get the VIN you can email them and they can tell you a bit about the car. They can usually tell you when the car was made, when it was delivered to the exporter, what kind it originally was, (i/L/carbed) and the original color. The original color can also usually be found on a tag on the left side door jamb, on the side closest to the engine bay. It says "Karmann" and has the paint code on it. Also, although this is somewhat rare to find now, coupes were supposed to have a build sheet attached to the back of the rear seats. The build sheet detailed what options were built into the car, the date produced, and a host of other info.
