Saw a 518i -80 for sale, at the same price as a new rear axle for my Citroen Berlingo. Thinking new old daily driver.

Also thinking there must be some knowledge about them here as well. It´s the m10 engine, and that´s handy. If it turns out crap after a while I guess I could use the injection=)

Dangers? Worst places for rust?

Take a look at/post up at


from what I've read, some rust prone areas are the same as 2002's, also on the E-12's, around the tail lamps. Car pictured looks pretty good, I'd go

for the oem steelies/hubcaps. Quite some time ago, there was an Inka E-12

520 around here in Rochester; had the Solex 4A1 carburettor on it
