    Lovely would absolutely love a 300ce.... not sure about the one with 300,000 miles on it though. Research says that are capable of bug miles but it would be hard sold on!
    If it was solid though body wise....

    Would an E28 520i with about 40k Miles interest you? It was for sale awhile back, not advertised, and in great shape.

    One example, which was priced just below 9k in a specialist dealer and came with a current NCT;

    Anyhow, not to derail the thread - just a case of eyes wide open etc
    Sound 126s and 124s seem to be scarce.
    What exactly are we looking at? Is their common places they rot?

    That specific pic is a C124 with the jack point cover open. There should be a sill in there. The circular piece is the support point for the jack. Suffice to say the sill was gone and the rot had spread into the floor.

    Wings and quarter panels, inner wings, any metal beneath a window seal, sills, jack points, floors, cross-section running from c-pillar to c-pillar (hidden beneath the parcel shelf). They're the first places to start.

    Blimey. . a Jack point cover.. thats sound like something that could easily pick up rust.
