Thanks guys, No don't want to try to make it something it's not, as only the CSLs came as a batmobile version. I'll just be putting a CSL chin spoiler on and some period Alpinas i think.

I've signed up on the E9 forum..... they're all old American and scary... :(

Any news on the restoration?

We have a Polo and l recently bought a 2002 BMW Z3 3.0.
These are available for no money, although you need £6k for a good/low mileage one.

Parts availability from BMW is exceptional. Everything is still available, despite the car being out of production for 12 years.
The only part l have been unable to get is front mud flaps!
