If you're talking Jack Fahuna at Pro Bimmer in Van Nuys he's a good guy. Sometimes he's a little more frank about things than people like, but I appreciate the honesty. He knows his way around vintage BMWs - my first hand experience with him has been fine.
Malaga will be for sale but not Granat rot. This is an Italian delivery car. Already built the 10:1 euro 3.5 motor with a Schrick and it's getting a five speed. Installing megasquirt. About 240-250 hp at crank.
There is a nice LHD tiaga on carclassic UK in Greece. It's about 40k without shipping, but honest original type looking car. Although not concours, I would definatly consider it, as to me it has the 'right' look. I forgot to mention it's also a CSi- happy hunting...
It's non A/C but looks like an honest car from the limited pics. The leather was redone with later style horizontal pleats instead of the correct vertical but based on the engine bay it appears well maintained.
