  1. BMW Motorcycles (aka Beemers) and the Competition
    Hey everyone, I build/ restore airheads and k models and have tons of nice extra parts from time to time. My current build is hardly using any original parts and the customer brought me a pristine 1984 r100 rs. As much as it pained me to strip that sucka down, the fabrication on the new parts...
  2. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 1999 540i M Sport that I am looking to revive. It has been sitting for about 2 years outside. I know that is messed up, but unfortunately circumstances dictated it. It was running at the time, but had some reliability issues. I have a new car under warranty as my daily and thankfully...

    Greetings. I live in Portland, OR and am finally ready to restore my baby. I have a magnificent mechanic here, but I'd like to find a specialist that concentrates solely on restorations, preferably in the western part of the U.S. It needs new interior and headliner + paint. No engine work (runs...

    Hello, in this thread I will tell the story of how I purchased my '90 E30 318is and how I am restoring it. I am a Mechanical Engineer that live and work in Saudi Arabia, and I drive a Toyota GT86. In my home country, Lebanon, I wanted to have a car that have similar characteristics, and a...

    The BMW 2002tii is one of the most fun-to-drive and affordable classic cars available. Most classic cars have a distinctly fragile and wooly way of handling and accelerating down the road, causing drivers to think... 'Don't floor the throttle because something might break!' Not in the BMW...
  6. E28 (1982 - 1988)
    So I am a newbie when it comes to e28s. My father has had one for a while and I recently decided to take it off his hands for a while and restore it for him. The car has a slew of problems but still runs and drives so I want to get it in good enough shape to last another 200,000 miles, but I...
  7. 7 Series - E23 / E32 (1977 - 1994)
    Hello, I am not altogether new but it has been awhile since I posted anything. 1) I have a BMW 733i, automatic trans, 4 door sedan in black. The transmission I believe needs to be replaced as it barely moves when in drive however the reverse seems to be ok or was when I parked it. I am very...

    I'm restoring Type114, I'm working on the engine and transmission right now, but I started working on some mockups of how the car should look. Maybe you guys could give me some feedback. In this one, I thought about painting the car white and sneakin in a bit of the 2002 turbo. I have a couple...

    Hello, I'm searching for dimensions of a couple of stickers, all of them are located on the door jamb, VIN with bar code, tire pressure and tires regulation. Anyone can help? [email protected] Cheers!
  11. E21 (1975 - 1983)
    I've found a 1981 version of this car and I'm getting it at a reasonable price, say about 3k USD. The current owner has had it parked up for at least a decade, I spoke to him and basically thought it would be just a shell I'd end up buying but I was informed that the engine and transmission were...

    Hey everyone, New to bimmerfest but in to BMW's for my whole life. When I was 15 I first laid eyes on a BMW 3.0 CS and new I had to have one. It's been my background on my mac and phone for years, and have casually looked for one over the years. 11 years later, I saw a white one for the first...

    Several months ago Clarion threw around the idea of creating a program where we restore and enhance cars that we have an affection for. Why would Clarion do this you might ask? Well, its simple, Clarion's engineers, marketers, management, sales staff and practically all employees are "car...

    Hey guys, So I saw a new trend that many people were telling me about and it is to use bug spray to clean headlights. I wanted to look into how it works and if it really works so I made a video all about it. People have videos on YouTube showing amazing initial results, but is it real and does...

    So I recently purchased a 525i from my buddy. It was in good condition, but the headlights...oh the headlights... So, After a quick search on this site, I saw that it was a pretty easy fix. I actually combined 2 "methods." First, I purchased the 3M Renewal Kit, which was on sale, and I paid...
