In this episode, I branch out and buy a Nissan! Except, I clicked on the wrong button and accidentally bought something else. I found this little gem in Castellón, Spain where it was sitting unused for the last 25 years. In the first instalment of the series, we take the delivery of the car, inspect the condition and see what it will take to bring it back to life.

When I was a child we had a BMW 1600 1969. It used to be my Grandfathers car and my mother got it from him when he stopped driving in 1980. My father drove it as a dalily driver until 1985/86. It stayed in the familly untill about 2005. And its still in the Swedish registry. The owner is living somewhere outside of Norrköping. Go and buy ut from him ;)

New subscriber here! Wow.. this will be an epic project. Cant describe my fellings of nostalgia. My first car, after I got my drivers license in '94, was a 1980 E21 323i. Of course it was a rust bucket with multiple issues such as faulty exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve, rusty fuel lines, etc etc. In hindsight it was a car that forced me learn tinker. :) Also so poor valve guides in the cylinder head is a common issue, resulting in blue smoke and high oil consumption. Seeing that your has the 5-speed gearbox must be truly unique. Trivia: The 1980 E21 got a minor facelift; the electric side mirrors and minor changes to the dash.

Solchen Schlurren hatte ich auch schon mal. Hat mir nur Ärger gemacht und fast in den Ruin getrieben... Ich empfehle, die Kurbelwellenlager und Pleuellager zu checken. Bei meinem 323i sind die bei ca. 95000 km kaputtgegangen und waren bei dem Motor eine Schwachstelle.

Hi, not sure if someone already mentioned it to you, but the the year on the spanish ITV sticker is the expiry year, and the dot marks the month, not when it was done. If it had its oil changed in 96 means someone drove it (maybe) for a year with an expired TÜF lol. Regarding the keys, my father owned for 30+ years an e30 and it also was my first car, with the older models to get keys done from the barrel, it´s best to get them done either with the drivers side door or the ignition, as I remember when my father bought his new in 1986, it came with 4 keys, 2 main keys that opened all doors, boot, glove box and petrol cap, one tiny key that was designed to hide somewhere (this one opened everything too) and a vallet key, which only opened the drivers door and the ignition. Love your videos, keep the great job. If you need translating spanish or portuguese anytime (my french is a bit rusty to offer lol), let me know, happy to help.

Well, thats really MINT for a 1980 car, indeed! I'm restoring a 1976 318, and it was in OK shape at a first glance, but I had to fully sand blast it after some closer inspection. And original M10 lump was almost destroyed by previous owner, so I had to get rid of it and found some very fun alternative with 60 in it's name : ) BTW, do you plan to source an original pop-up rear windows and side-mounted chrome mirrors?

This is so exciting! I love your channel. Been addicted for several months now. I just bought a 1981 528i 5 speed also! It was well taken care of, but it needs some work to run as well as I want it to. I look forward to your thorough expertise of taking this engine down to get it running as the M30B28 engine in my 528i is very similar (or so I've been told). Good luck sir! I'll be watching closely and giving tips if I have any to give! Greetings from Canada! Peter
