    Andrew Wilson's '73 CSi

    I can finally call Athena the 'perfect' 3.0CSi, for me that is. After considerable research, consultation and being old enough to know better, we bought Athena an Italian delivery 1973 3.0 CSi from Ayer European Auto Sales in Gardiner Maine. Compared to Vern, the trip home was not a grand...

    My 1971 2800CS Build

    I know most of you have seen it already but I figured I'd post up a "build" thread for my E9. It's a '71 2800CS. I haven't been documenting all that well so far but I'll be sure to start. Here's the car the day I picked it up about a month ago. It's in great shape...

    My 1972 CS project...

    Why finish one project when you can start another. That has been my motto with this car. It has been 10+ years and it's still not done. The past two months I have found some new energy to pump into this little sucker. We will see if I can have it done sometime this summer. They are hell...

    And so the saga begins

    I dropped the car off today to have a dent pulled out of the front valance and the sidemarkers deleted in preparation for the new paint. The shop is going to weld in tabs to cover the holes and then seal/fill/prime the spots for me. Then its back to the garage where the REAL fun will begin...

    '72 Bavaria resurrection

    Assuming the Bavaria is not shunned here, and since this sight has thus far been very helpful, I have decided to start a project car page. In November '09 I bought this 1972 Bavaria from a college student who had driven it from lower michigan to upper Michigan to school 3 years in a row...

    My CS Restoration

    This is my account of the restoration of my pride and joy, a BMW 3.0 CS Coupe. I purchased the car on February 16 1999 having decided to look around and find a nice one, the thing is these cars were rare when they were current (in the 70's) which means they aren't exactly thick on the ground...
