Well I decided that it was worth the swap, my Alfa 200GTV for this 745i Turbo I had in mind. Got it home today and was very impressed with its performance. I am glad to have finally found a suitable replacement for my 6.9. While it's not quite up to Benz standards, being European spec, it will really blow the socks off unsuspecting motorists. I was concerned early on about the availability of parts and a shop manual, but quickly sourced a set of original BMW microfiche repair films and have found a good parts source for European BMW parts. This particular car was imported directly from Germany in the late '80s so therefore the instruments are still in metric measurements and the lettering on the switches and dials is in German. Cool!
