Dinan just spent me the specs on this car based on their invoice of what was installed. 383bhp and 460lbs torque. Not to shabby I would say. Stock M6 is 253hp.
Well, I have decided to keep the car indefinitely and do the deep dive. My 29 year old son was so excited about this car and the prospect of me leaving it to him in my will. LOL. The clear is gone on the upper surfaces and is not salvageable. Fortunately, I am a master painter and this car is worthy of one of my paint jobs. The Interior is thankfully in excellent condition and only needs a good cleaning. Even the driver's side bolster on the sport seat is not worn. Gas is varnished, so tank out and full system clean to start. I can't wait to feel what 383hp feels like in a E24. This is the interior as-found. That wiring mess coming out of the glovebox area is a Sirius Radio receiver, a blue tooth hands free transmitter/receiver for the radio and a Dinian Stage 5 Control Module in case any of you were wondering.You can't find any non-M Dinan's because there are (at this point in time) so few left. You have a unicorn, and it's definitely worth spending some $$$$ to get it going.
Does it need paint? I see the clearcoat is in rough shape, but a good shop may be able to re-clear it. How's the interior?
I'd get it running, then decide. I see the intake boot just before the AFM is in terrible condition. Stuff like that will have to be addressed.
I suggest you join BigCoupe.com. We have a large, worldwide group of very knowledgeable E24 owners that would be excited to see your car, and would be more than willing to help with any problems you encounter.
I mean about thieves. No need to make them aware where such a gem is located. Plus the risk of plate cloning. Siphoning such info from forums can be automated. My $0.02.Hiding the plate is a useless exercise. Don't bother. The tag expired years ago...
