Not much going on in the e12 section so thought I would add pics of my e12. Bought it back in January on ebay from Bristol. Drove it home and began fixing her up.

Started like this...



It is fairly solid inside and out. Just needs some love!

So far I've replaced -

Front and rear discs and pads
All calipers overhauled
Coolant and brake fluid change
Thermostat and hoses
Replaced the fuel tank and hoses
Removed alot of old wiring/alarms
Fixed all the elec windows
Fitted coilover susp
Fitted 18" Style 5's

They cleaned her up. Clayed, machine polish and waxed so that it now looks like this...



I'll be at Gaydon in this, so say hi!!!
