BMW E21 327i (second racetrack video)

Post by croma_man »

First hello, i'm from Slovenia (EU) the last time I checked we don't have wars and sh** around us :bag

so lets get started, i'll post my pictures in 1-2 days difference like a good TV show.

car is late 1983 production, Hennarot 315, first colour, with almost no rust. When I bought it, it already had the BBS front spoiler, BBS boot spoiler and BBS Mahle 13" original E21 wheels. Optional extras? 2 mirrors :loll

I think it was the ultraleggera CSL edition because it had no stereo, so I bet it was more pricy because of the weight reduction :wha



Season 1 episode 1

brand spanking new
Image
after almost 30 years
Image
Image

so yes, plans were big, i have over 400 pictures so get ready and enjoy the show :popcorn

due to mine almost 200cm height and lack of 1000 euro for recaros i bought something that made the whole bmw world shake, Audi TT 2010 seats :mrgreen:
other interior is going to stay original, just one compromise with the seats.

Welcome here and thanks for posting the first series of photos! Can imagine that original seats are expensive, but you found a good solution. Don't understand the cut out behind your rear seat either, perhaps the trunk lock broke one day and they had go get to the trunk somehow? Anyway, enjoy this place!

i was really like :shock when i pulled everything out of the car, tho nothing was noticeable under the car before i bought it, i couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the condition. Just 2 small holes in the front, fixed in 1 hour work. On the outside i just need to refurb the front sideskirts (jack trolley damages) and a few minor dents.

Lucky man! Some pull the mats to find out there's nothing underneath left! Cherish her and give her some protection at the sensitive spots including the caps at the floor.

was the car originally waxed in the hollow sections? Before winter sleep the car gets only the best isolation for the underbody and another round of hollow sections wax.

The hollow spaces of the BMW E21 were certainly not waxed. A simple protection was used i believe. The outside had ofcourse the coating.

As jeroen said, a very nice result for a car with almost 300000 km.
