    Vapor Blast/vapor homing Southern California

    Sent my intake manifold, runners, and my throttle body into these guys in Anaheim. They made my parts look like new. They did such an amazing job that I had to post. I know some other e9 and e10 guys in OC use these guys with amazing results. Non abrasive. PARTS REBORN in Anaheim, California.

    1976 3.0 CS Restoration Project... The Last Coupe?

    I own a gray market 1976 BMW 3.0 CS. I don't know how many of these were made back in the day, but I know it must be rather rare, because when I tried to insure it, my insurance company said the car did not exist, so I had to bring it down to the branch to prove it to them that it did...

    Interior restoration complete.

    Hello there. Thought I'd share some progress on the gentle restoration of my new-to-me 3.0 csi. I feel I need to tell this to somebody. The interior was a mess when I bought the car. A previous owner spent a lot of money on beautifully retrimming the interior in light grey leather (and...
