Part 1: Forgotten for 16 Years
You join me on a road trip to Malaga, Spain as I hunt down a rare and beautiful BMW specimen: 1992 E31 850i with a 6-speed manual gearbox and sunroof delete. As I discovered later, it was owned by a family of artists who are related to the famous painter Pablo Picasso. Sadly, the 8er has been heavily neglected and its last technical inspection dates back to 2004.
Part 2: Back in Service after 16 Years
Fast-paced, wrench action-packed revival of a 1991 BMW E31 850i that was left to rot in a garage for the last 16 years before I acquired it. In this video, we bring this mighty V12 back to life. Towards the end of the video, I made a breakdown of parts and their cost. Also, in the end I give a hint of what the next M project car is!
P.S. I upgraded the camera so the video quality should be much better!
