I just bought it. Scheduling a prepurchase inspection. Seller agreed to let me have it inspected before finalizing sale.

Anyone in the Houston/Sugarland area want to snap some more photos and/or do a road test for me?

Wow that's a pretty good deal, wonder what mysteries it holds. Any confirmation on what the kit that is? Koenig, ABC Exclusive, or a Asian made kit?

Congrats on an interesting buy either way.

Dont know yet, hoping its a Koenig. With the right paint and rims it should be 100x better.

Any local Houston area BW members want to snap some detailed photos and do some reconnasiance for me>?

Glad to see that it's going to a BW member!!!!! In the hands of somewone who knows what there doing, this car could be a real jewel in the rough. Congrates Tusabes on the purchase. For that price, a to-do list from the PPI isn't a bad thing if it's a real Koenig.

Thanks andrew...how can I tell for certain if its Koenig? Is there a Koenig stamp in the bumper or something else I can tell?

Did all Koenigs have wdb126 VIN numbers?
Its an American VIN car, wdbCA, so I assume it wasnt built at Koenig, unless someone shipped it back to Europe for the conversion when it was done

can you imagine how awesome if that turns out to be an authentic Koenig and the seller had no idea what kind of gem he has!

Good luck tusabes! You may remember from an earlier post, there is a Koenig here in the south florida area. It's a 380, but has decent three piece wheels. If it still hadn't sold maybe you can work out a trade for the wheels.
I was tempted to buy that one but as one member put it : "it's all hat but now cowboy;)"

Yes I started the thread on the fl Koenig, I don't care for it's wheels they don't look like real bbs . Also It's a euro 380 with stock interior

Seller told me the interior on this one is custom I am waiting on
Pics . For wheels thinking either real bbs or amg 3pc is the way to go

By the way..you are very brave to buy a car like this without having seen the interior, so kudos to you on that. A bad interior can literally sink you financially in trying to repair it, so I hope the interior looks as good if not better than the exterior. Please post pics when you get them. :)
