Gaydon 2016

Post by AndyBaur » Wed Jul 27, 2016 6:39 pm

Are they any forum members going this year?

There were only 2 on general display last year. My 320 Baur & Kent's black 323. BMW Classic brought along their 320 in the museum & Ben had his racer on the motorsport stand.

Sadly I won't be there with the Baur as my friend bought it a couple of weeks ago. :( I do have some spares I can bring down to the show (set of H&R springs, a pair of sills & a set of side rubbing strips). I don't think the Recaro seats will fit into an E93 with the roof up :?

Moved to Events section and also linked to this thread from the events calendar.

Funny thing is that I hear quite some complaints that we are having great events across the pond, but people in the UK hardly seem to attend events

Anyway, hope that Silverstone Classic (upcoming weekend!), Gaydon and Retro Rides will see a decent number of E21's!
Regards/groeten, Jeroen

I'll be there on the London Region stand with 'Taiga Thunder' and Prakash will have his there, maybe Simon. I think Kyri (323i special) has booked as well.

Hello,

I have just registered with the BMWCC to show my E21 at the show. I understand that cars have to be there before 10am. Driving down from North Lincolnshire and looking forward to seeing some E21s out in the wild. See you there.

Regards
Steve

I have some E21 spares I can bring down if anyone is interested. I've got:
  • pair of new full sills
    set of used H&R springs (-40mm)
    set of side rubbing strips
I'll see if I can get some photos & post them in the For Sale section.

I also have a pair of recaros but I don't think I'll be able to get them in an E93 :lol:

Is yours the black 323 from last year? I had the Chestnut Red Baur next to you. Sadly I don't have the Baur anymore but I'll call by.

Yep, Good weather, good chat and I think the changes to the museum have improved it.

I'll try and get some of my pictures up tonight.

Hi Everyone, Showed my E21 at Gaydon 2016 for the first time this year. Enjoyed seeing the other E21s on show and speaking to their proud owners. Here are a few of the images that I took on the day of the E21s that I saw. Already looking forward to visiting again next year, fielding some more questions about E21s in general, and getting answers/help to my questions.

Hope to see everyone again next year.
