It's a BMW that requires attention just like any other. My main concern is the overall condition of the car. Is it a project or can it be driven home & work with a few minor repairs and servicing? Just depends on what you are looking for and how far your money will go. I bet it will be a great car regardless. It's a classic in it's own class!!

Good Luck

I have had my share of ups and downs with mine, but when the dust settles, you will undertsand what it means to be driving the true "Ultimate Driving Machine".
There is nothing like the feeling of driving a V12 luxury cruiser (we call them land-jets), just make sure you get a good one.
Check out www.wuffer.net and download the Pre-purchase inspection checklist to give you an idea of what to specifically look for when attempting to purchase one of these rare cars.
