    Back In The Game

    Starting a restoration on a 1973 3.0 CS purchased at the beginning of summer. The car has bounced around the forum for a few years and ended up in Minnesota before arriving in UT. Thanks to @Markos for putting me in touch with the seller. I drove the car all summer and the engine ran really...

    Now we begin!

    It’s taken me 9 months since digging her out of the dark warehouse but got her to my coupe whisperer with the first goal being that of running. Then driving. Then we decide what to do. Pics of the bottom end. Virginal rod caps. And where she was hidden since ‘96 (From my first e9 coupe post...

    My E9 CSL Fjord Blue Restoration Chassis No. 2285292

    Hi all, After purchasing my CSL back in December 2017 and parking it up in a container until August 19 Ive finally got round to start my restoration. The vehicle hasn't been on the road in over 20 years as it was an unfinished project from the last owner who ran out time and enthusiasm. A...

    Blue EV build

    By semi-popular demand here it is... my build thread! Those who read my IKEA Effect thread know that I'm somewhat ambivalent about making this public but there was some interest and I think the build is interesting. To make a long story(so far) short, I started on a B35 swap that has crept...

    Gary's Avus Blau 3.0CS rebuild

    Finally going to start a rebuild page. It will be 3 years next month since I started this. The car had a lot of rust, so nothing new there. It spent 1 year in the metal shop. I totally stripped it to a bare metal car and soda blasted. I think I was W&N's best customer for a few months. Ha! New...

    CSL Barn Find 2285251

    That got everybody's attention. Apologies to the couple of Forum members that know parts of this story but now that the deal has been closed I thought it only fair to update everybody. A while back word of a chamonix 1972 'barn find' ' City Pack' CSL was doing the rounds here among parts of...

    My Alpina B2 powered 3.0CS

    Hey guys, it's about time I started a proper documentation of the work on my e9. The project is certainly turning out to be a lot bigger than I had planned so I thought Id share my adventure here and hopefully absorb some of the forums' fountain ofd knowledge along the way! Last year I...

    1974 BMW CSE

    Hey guys, Well, after introducing myself over the weekend, it seems that there is enough of an interest in my electric coupe to carry on a build thread. I created a blog for this project so that various friends and clients around the country can easily follow along. But I will just try to...

    Not frame off, but close!

    We need some help identifying which replacement parts to order for rust remediation. The exploded views in the Wallothnesch Catalog are incomplete as the individual screens have more parts listed with a -00 suffix. Hopefully the images will be adequate to ascertain what we need. Obviously new...

    My Baby is done... Thanks for all your help!!!!

    [This thread is a continuation of my mini-restoration project started here, but locked down for comments due to non-relevant content being added by others.] Benny and I met today, and we both apologized to each other. We went over the car carefully together and he promised to address ALL my...

    72 CSi rotisserie restoration

    Howdy all, I am restoring a 72 LHD Cs which will end up having an M90/B35 engine converted to retro D-Jetronic Fi system. I thought it would be useful info for others travelling down this path. Car at present is down to a shell/sandblasted/epoxy coated and in the metal fabricators for new...

    I just couldn't stop myself opening Pandora's Box!

    I was recently investigating why my headlamp stalk was so close to the rim of my recently installed Petri 380mm steering wheel. I had initially thought it was because I was using a 2002 hub, rather than an E9 hub, although the 6mm difference between the two didn't explain how close my headlamp...

    1970 2800CS restosortof

    Since the term restomod is kind of out these days I will refrain from using. The fact is that I am finishing a restoration and modifying the car to my tastes. My car started as a very nice original car that was repainted (not very well ) and maintenance has been kept up with somewhat. My build...

    Hi guys, Been posting some updates regarding restoration of my E9 and @Peter Coomaraswamy suggested to open a thread to see progress over time which is great. I first have opportunity to check E9 up close 6-7 years ago when my friend bought 2800CS restoration project. I fell in love with the...

    The end is near....SCOTTeVEST's Baby

    I am about to get my Coupe repainted, not a bare metal restore, etc. It looks great now, but just needs some love. I am getting chrome bumpers installed and thought I would get the whole car painted while I am at it. Here is what I sent to the painter, and his bid is shown here. Thanks for...
