I am looking for an E60 and/or a 190 EVO I.
I am VERY serious, meaning I'd get on a plane tomorrow for the right car.
By "right car" I mean good service history, no irreversible modifications, no major accidents, and no repaints - in other words... just a good, honest, no excuses car. with low to mid Kms.
I will pay a fair price, not looking to "steal" it but I wont get "taken" either. You MAY find someone who will pay more, but I will pay NOW.
It is for me and my use, not for resale as I am not some very rich used car salesman from the very rich East or West Coast area of the country like some are. I am an enthusiast and have been since 1972 when I got my first car, a 1962 MGA. Most of the cars I own today I bought in the early-mid 80s. The 124s got started in the 2006 era.
Anyway it's a car that I would probably keep until I die of natural causes (I am 59) or Joanna kills me (she is 50), whichever comes first. Smart money will be on Joanna, but the E320 coupe I bought her went a long way towards keeping the local undertaker away with regards to any business from this household.
I could say something trite like "it will go to a good home" or I could say something like "I'll pay in cash." You decide which is more important.... BTW, I don't have to ask my bank, my mother or even, shhhhhh, Joanna. When I decide; the deal is done as far as my end is concerned.
I am not on any of the German forums but I am sure some, many, members are. Pass the word please.
I prefer to buy direct from an enthusiast but I also prefer world peace. Sometimes we don't always get what we prefer.
So if you know of any please let me know. I will even pay a "finders fee" for your time.
The car will be thoroughly inspected by both me and a competent specialist.
I can buy it today but if it takes 6 months to find the right car, so be it. But my tastes may change and the money is not unlimited. So if I find an 8C Alfa at the right price (unlikely)... no E60 or 190 EVO for now.
I check Mobile.de on a daily (hourly) basis so I have that venue covered, it's the forums, where I do not speak the language, that I am looking for help.
