: 520I SE Restoration - re-post

Re-posting thanks to my overlooking the specific forum dates and blundering into the E28 forum - doh.

This might seem odd but I'm looking for anyone who can do full restoration on a 1993 520I - it's not vintage, I'll admit.

My wife was given this particular car by her father who passed away earlier this year - it's a great runner, engine is in tip-top condition - but it's showing it's age in the bodywork and undercarriage (fuel lines were replaced recently as they'd corroded as an example).

For my part, money is no object in the course of restoration - if it makes her happy, it's money well spent tbh.

Any feedback or suggestions gratefully received...

Where are you located? It may help to find some people. (I'm assuming Glasgow is somewhere in Europe, just not sure where)

Glasgow is indeed in Europe :-) Scotland to be precise. I'm sure there's heaps of places that would do restoration, but they don't tend to show up via Google - word of mouth isn't doing me much good either.
