    Just joined BMWCCA -- here a few pictures of my 3.0 CS Fjord, 5 sp, 3.5, 16 BBS, and the other desirable updates--Rust free (always!) Enjoy :)

    PS Sorry, I also threw another in, just to add to the enjoyment.

    Been away from the Forum, sorry for not replying sooner. And, many thanks for the compliments on it (plus the R8 :).

    Some details include:
    It is completely Rust free! yes, really, and it has Not been restored, as it has always been a California/SOCAL car - never repaired. I currently have it in CA, but will be in Ohio by this summer.

    Numerous mechanical upgrades have been done, to make it a reliable and better driver than when new.
    * Wilton wool carpets
    * Black connelly leather hides
    * Factory A/C
    * Manual sunroof
    * 3.5 L BMW engine
    * 5 speed OD ZF manual gearbox
    * 16" BBS alloys
    * Bilstein HD gas shocks
    * sport springs
    * HD sway bars
    * high performance radiator w 9 blade fan & modern fan clutch
    * stainless steel brake lines
    * Hella halogen low/high beem headlamps
    * wood steering wheel
    * all body seals replaced
    * etc etc-- everything works perfect-electric windows, sunroof, ...
    All the "updates" were done by the usual suspects in SOCAL

    And one other very rare item! Rear window shade option (BMW)

    Cheers! and enjoy! the Classics!

    There is lots of 3.0CS specific information at http://www.e9coupe.com. You should also add your coupe to their registry.

    Just so you know, the side profile view of the CS (door open) has been set as my desktop wallpaper since you posted those pics. :D

    I'm honored! If we ever meet personally, a good beer will more that cover :)

    I'm afraid that won't happen; I don't drink. :)
    Perhaps we will meet indeed. Where's your neck of the woods?

    Drinking or not is absolutely no problem, as I like coffeee and OJ just as much. I'm in Ohio mostly, but lots of other time out west CA/AZ usually.

    Oh well. Really would have liked to see that beauty in person, as I'm sure pictures don't do it justice.

    Definitely wouldn't have minded seeing the R8, either. :D

    Just joined and am waiting for my new joy to arrive here in Florida from San Diego via truck. Had a new 2800CS in Germany, 1970 and enjoyed touring throughout Europe with it. Bought it back to the states and was having an A/C install done when the garage burned down and a steel beam divided the CS in two...lo, 40 years later I'm starting all over again with a '74 3.0 CS with 3.5 engine. Chris Keefer at LaJolla Independent, Inc. has done most of the work on the car for the last 10 years and I highly recommend him. I'll be watching for an opportunity to receive some instruction in driving.

    Best to all my new CS enthusiasts!
