Smile New member in search of a ZM coupe

Hello to all members!
I'm pleased to have successfully joined the forum and I will look and post on here whenever I get the chance ,
My name is Adrian and I'm an avid BMW nut and have been for years owning many variants along the way. I have been looking for an early S50 ZM coupe particularly in imola red with black leather and fully aware they don't often crop up for sale so I have broadened my search far and wide including joining forums.
After viewing two ZM's for sale to date (not imola red) I am also fully aware that these cars are not exempt from serious rust problems as both cars I have viewed were very rough underneath the rear of the chassis and all four jacking points!
I'm sure one will come along and it's a case of simply waiting,if any members had any knowledge of one I would be extremely grateful if you could let me know . It's great to be part of the forum and I will post any information regarding my search on here and also for any advice if I'm in need of some whilst buying my possible dream car which I have saved long and hard to reach.

Hello David
Just spotted your message thankyou
Your car sounds like it's a fabulous example and although it's perhaps not the first of my colour choice I would love to own such a great example.
Which variant silver would it be,Titan silver or Arctic silver?
I have not rang you as firstly I have only just spotted your message and secondly I think maybe your car will be way out of my budget of 30k.
The car must be wonderful.
Regards Adrian.

Welcome to the Forum Adrian, glad to see you took my advice in looking over here. Just keep an eye on the For Sale section as there always new cars coming up for sale hopefully there maybe one which will be in your budget and specification. Also there is the advantage that some of these cars are owned or are known to Forum members.
Good luck with your search.

Thanks Pete!
Huge thanks fella for your advise,once I've got my head around the forum and how it works (I'm old school) I can keep my eye on any potential cars that may pop up. I have been tempted to view some other cars that have been advertised for a while like a Dakar yellow one with AC Schnitzer bits on it including wheels but it has nearly 90k miles and it's 30,000! At Ron Hodgson cars,
I'm not too keen on yellow cars but it looks pretty good,I just think it's too high price for the miles on it.
My budget is 30k and would be a bonus if a car came up lower than that in good condition with similar or lower miles,in imola red preferably.
