    It's way past time to start two new permanent threads on cross-reference parts and DYI projects. Use the 308 and Boxer forums as guides and starting pointings. Just a thought. Jq.

    Hello all I am the new owner of the gorgeous blue 1984 400i chassis number 51777 previously owned by my good friend janastas who documented her transition on this forum from 2015 until now. I have wanted one of these since 1985 when my boarding school roommates dad had one. I do not know of any other real ones in Palm Beach - that is all original retaining the production colour, wheels and the v12. Does anyone know the answer? I will have it in my possession in two weeks after the service is done and it ships from Los Angeles. So excited and the color scheme bothe the interior and exterior perfectly match my 2015 Porsche turbo for some great photo opportunities soon to come. Thanks in advance for welcoming me!

    Jason Blood - welcome! That is a great looking color combination. I'm sure there are other 400i owners in Palm Beach. Is it a manual or auto? More pics would be nice too.

    No cats, stebro exhaust all original other than exhaust and wind screen. Full records since new. Jonathan did an amazing job on this car - I am truly blessed.

    Indeed... a great color combination... although I am biased, as mine is very similar to this combo :)

    Cheers,

    Good day Jason,

    Don't be too shocked, as there are others with even less mileage. My 1975 (365 GT4 2+2) has only 15000 KM (about 9000 miles)! The first owner put little miles on the car, and the 2nd pretty much used the car as a golf cart... this is no joke. He actually drove the car on the golf course to transport his clubs. Why didn't the Golf course object? Well, the fellow actually own the courset and several others too. I found out some uber cool stories about this owner from his private pilot who also owned my car for a while. If our cars could talk :)

    Cheers,

    Sam

    Ok so an update. Wired the money to the seller at the agreed upon price. He kept stalling me on the title and the bill of sale and eventually disappeared with my mon ey. Not happy. No car, no title, no bill of sale.

    So you wired the entire amount directly to an unknown-to-you seller?

    I hope it was just a deposit that is gone. Sorry to hear this.

    Hello Jason. I hope that you have by now received your car and all is as expected. We are all awaiting further updates!

    I am shipping my 1980 400i auto (s/n 3329) from Michigan to West Palm Beach later this month. It has undergone an extensive mechanical restoration at my local dealer. I will have interior and exterior work completed in Florida. It is Pozzi Blu with a tan interior with Blu seat inserts and trim. The body is rough and I will still need to replace the exhausts and rear suspension. I would love to get together with you and other local 400 owners to compare notes and admire each other's steeds. Mine was a daily driver for many years and has accumulated over 70,000 miles.

    Mike G.
