Bought as a young lad with newborn at home working on the lube rack at a mercedes repair shop. Could not really afford it but after several 2002 I knew the coupe was the ultimate bmw for me and we barely could afford it but I pushed my way through it and now 15 years later I am still a high end mechanic at the same shop and now I can afford to restore and modify it to my hearts dreams. Bought from a older wealthy customer who was done with it and did not want to spend any more money to fix things. Had been in storage in arizona at their second home for 10 years and barely driven when I bought it. This accounts for the complete lack of rust due to the dry conditions. It was his wifes car. he also owned a mercedes 1972 3.5 convertible which did increase in value but he said this car never really increased like he thought it would. This car did suffer a front and rear collision which was repair with a lot of new parts which I appreciate later due to the newer condition of the front and rear parts.
