The rubber can handle the 2-1/2MPH.....(I made the correction thanks Chris, all these years I had 10mph stuck in my mind). Even the diving boards I guess were only 5mph according to a Hagerty article written by the famous Rob Siegel LINK: https://www.hagerty.com/media/opinion/the-hack-mechanic/for-the-love-of-a-bmw-bavaria/Looks nice Shane. You went from 2 1/2 mph bumpers to 0 mph bumpers though!
And the million dollar air dam looks great!Here are some sneak peeks of my TUCKED REAR BUMPER!!!! AND THEY SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE! OH YEAH!!!! Custom brackets, no more 10mph '73 only metal hoops pushing rear bumper out. WOW those are heavier than you think so shed some weight as well. Straightened front bumper back out, needed a tweak. As soon as water pump is fixed I will take some nice shots of finished product out in the sun. I'm super stoked, what a difference in the look.
Thanks yeah it is almost the million dollar air dam as much as it's been repaired but I wouldn't have it any other way. Being a sedan, I really think it "lightens" the look of the car vs. a "heavier looking" CSL air dam or some of the other designs. The 'heavier looking designs" as i call them, work just fine on a coupe, and I still like them on a Bavaria vs. no air dam, but I'm impartial to the Alpina one. I like what Paul Cain did with his old 3.8L coupe that recently sold (from an e24 I believe), that was a ton of work but would probably look good on a Bav if the measurements would work. Not sure if Zender ever made one for a Bavaria, maybe someone can share a pic if they did.And the million dollar air dam looks great!
Still gotta have one.
