E21 Complete Buyer's Guide - PC Magazine

A superb and pretty comprehensive buyer's guide taken from Practical Classics magazine, packed with useful buying and owner's information. The article is from Feb. 2008 and claims a mint E21 can be picked up for £2000. Have values gone up or down in four years? Well, I'd say they've stayed more or less the same, but a mint 1980 320/6 like Andrew Henry's blue one here would be an absolute snip at two-grand! Four years must have seen a few more cars to the scrapyard too, so my advice would be to buy soon if you're after a decent E21 for sub 2k!

E21 316: Engine-Bay Painting 1.

Brake servo and 'Puralator' air-filter were in need a revamp, thought I'd do the scuttle-panel cover as well.

Quick rub-down, blast of zinc-primer and then a good coat of BMW Black spray.

The engine looks a bit more cared for now!
