my name is ruben block,I live in belgium.I new here so I didn't know all this board yet.
my passion is bmw,I started my live with the bmw e24.
I have completely restaured a bmw e24 m635csi.I know the car inside out.
in my opion to give a number on a e24 is,the state of the e24.
I like when a car is in showroom state.you must know that parts of the e24 are not cheap.
when you have a lot of metal work on a car(rust)it will drive the price fast up.
knowing you have to buy new chrome(chrome rear bumper only 550 euro)(only rear bumper)
when a e24 haves a good interior,nice leather sport seats,no rust on the outside,inside,have good chrome pieces and dry rubber strips.
fully good (all the suspension parts)drive and brakes good)its worth a lot of money.because this mean you only have to get fuel and start driving.
so when buying a car that drives brakes and run good,is worth to pay a little more.
the problems start when you have to take care of rust,a good outside paintjob cost fast 4000 euro,when need good rubber strips,when you need chrome plus 1400 euro(some strips like the roof ones can not be used again)70 euro per piece 2 set a side)
outside trim is very expensive.rubber strips of the door too.
replace panels is a pain in the ....(the most e24 are rusted)(check verry good the underside and wheel arches)(when found one contact me please)
but engine and gearbox part cost the most,then chrome,then lights,then rubber strips
my price vision is(for show room state cars)
628csi from 5000 to 10000 and more(problem is nobody wants a 628,verybody wants a 635csi of a m6(635)csi
635csi from 5000 to 15000 and more
M6(35) csi from 12.5 to 20000 and more
it depents in what state you want to find a e24.
do you want to rebuild him youre self(buy low and invest)
do you want to pay and drive without problems(buy a good one,very good state,nice chrome and rubber parts)and find the best you can find with youre budget.
and very important,find a man,that knows the e24.contact me iff you dont find any one.
send me pics and I will help you out,I know that there are a lot of parts that are not amy more to order from bmw.
I have a lot of breakers in my back yard,that is for me the way to bring the cost down.
