Wink Fotos - shortly after pickup in München!

What 12-hour rule? Considering the Web and Bimmerfest didn't exist in 1982, when I was living in München (these photos were taken behind Christoph-Probst-Straße 12), I guess I was exempt from compliance.

I just did a post where I referred to the 12 hour rule as the 24 hour rule. My mistake! I don't feel so bad now that we have the 26 year rule. :>)

P.S. I drove a car with the same style plates back in 1968. I still have them in the garage (I hope).

Nice

Do you have ED pics for all the other cars leading to your E90?

If you do I am sure everyone on here would love to see them.....

Thanks Den.

I only have about 10,000 slides left to scan so I´m sure I´ll find more.

The immediate predecessor to this car was picked up in 2002 - I´ll post a few of those later today.

Gorgeous! JSpira, the only thing that would compliment the oval plates better would be the ol' skool 4 headlight wipers on yellow halogens!

Thanks Fin.

You don't know how many times I thought about retrofitting the wipers!

Re the yellow lights, since I was in Germany, not France, it would have looked out of place.

I'm sure the pictures were posted on time. It just took 26 years to upload them over a 300 baud modem in 1982.

Yes, I remember the prices as if it were yesterday.

Without the options (I had the S package), the list price U.S. was $13,200 or so; Euro. Delivery was $10,700.

No BMW CCA member reward then however.

Uh, these were 13".

And these were the Sport package wheels!

I'll find an interior shot to show off the amazing Recaro seats.

Makes me wonder... How much bigger are rims going to get, given the trend..?

Are these the wheels of the future?

Interesting- I didn't realize the yellow lights was a French thing (and I will refrain from making a french joke with the word yellow)!

I always loved the headlight wipers on the older european bmws. Hmmmm, maybe time to drill some holes under my xi's lights!

btw, the 530i sport is timeless!
