Yeah no kidding- Gonna get rid of the 928- mines really well sorted and a tremendous driver but I cannot get over the metric ton of black plastic in the interior. It seems there are two types of 400/412 owners- those who sour on the cars within a year and those who keep them for decades... Let's see how my enthusiasm for this series is in a year's time. Still finding it hard to believe that the market is so poor for these cars- I bought the white 400i for about HALF of what it would cost me to get the same amount of restoration work done locally- I think gutting an 83 400i and doing new paint, welding and repairing the lower door skins, rebuilding the heads with new valves, seats and guides, new accumulators, new Stebro exhaust, COMPLETE new leather and carpets and headliner, rebush front end, new motor and tranny mounts, resurface flywheel and new clutch, gear reduction starter, rebuild power steering pump, NEW TRX's and basically go through and do everything needed to fuel injection systems and electrical systems to make the car reliable- that is probably $60K+ around here- maybe substantially more... Not including the roughly $28K or so it would take to buy ANY 5 speed in mediocre cosmetic and mechanical condition- And even doing the work yourself assuming you could do all of that- you're still into $20K just in materials and parts and how many years of labor?? And yet somewhow it nags me that I "overpaid". The Series I 400I that was sold up here in MA a little while ago was at $40k when i looked at it- Nice paint, wrong lenses, old rubber, very worn interior, engine bay looked somewhat old and tired- car showed 30K on the clock but had the feel of an old, tired car- eventually sold for $30K. And even though that's roughly what I paid for the rebuilt Series II... The Silver car feels like a deal to me but I'm quite sure I paid tippy top of the market- I would doubt there will be a SINGLE 412 auto that changes hands for $37K this year in the States- so to address the point that many have made- I bought both cars with NO eye towards future resale value- they just seemed too cheap for ME not to buy, enjoy and have some fun with. Now gotta keep THREE Fcars fed and watered...oh boy!
