I'll second that. I'd always wanted one and recently bought an 86 TCQ. I've had
a fair share of things to get done (every week something turns up), but the fun
of driving it makes it all worth while.

Also, the cost of maintenance is on par with any Bimmer. This mail group is
also an excellent way of finding out snips, which will reduce your running
costs if you do things yourself.
