1970 BMW 2800CS E9 coupe. I looked long and hard before finding this car.The car runs and drives. The engine sounds great and does not make any ticks or knocks or anything of the sort. the original carbs (included with the car) have been replaced with webers.
The 4 speed transmission shifts fine. I'm sure a new set of shifter bushings would clean it up but it does work as
is. the LSD works great.
I rebuilt the front calipers and put all new rear brakes. it still needs a good bleeding though.
The exterior of the car looks great as you can see in the pics. by no means is it perfect but it is nice for a
driver. such beautiful lines. the car used to be blue and was painted white by the previous owner. it could use new
door seals.
the interior looks pretty nice also. the dash has some cracks, the wood veneer needs a little love, the rear seat
arm rest has some cracks on the top part. the rear power windows need to be gone through, i bought new switches for
it but have not tried to anything with them. there is no radio. the shifter console needs a little attention.
unfortunately these cars are infamous for rust. this one is not too bad. underneath is neither beautiful nor
horrendous. it does have surface rust. looks like most of it can be cleaned off with a wire brush and sprayed with
undercoating. there was a small patch in the driver side floor. you may find a spot here or there that may need
attention but for the most part it is pretty solid.

BMW slapped with discrimination suit by EEOC

Thu, 13 Jun 2013 10:15:00 EST

According to a report from CNNMoney, BMW has been hit with a lawsuit from the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission after revised criminal background check policies resulted in the dismissal of 88 contractors, 70 of whom (that's about 80 percent) were black. A total of 645 contractors were required to submit to background checks at BMW's facility in Spartanburg, South Carolina after BMW switched contract companies at its plant.
Though the 88 persons who were not rehired by the new contractor all had criminal records, that may not necessarily be a legal way to screen applicants, as the EEOC counters: "BMW's policy has no time limit with regard to convictions. The policy is a blanket exclusion without any individualized assessment of the nature and gravity of the crimes, the ages of the convictions, or the nature of the claimants' respective positions."
BMW's actions were in violation of the Civic Rights Act of 1964, according to the EEOC, because they utilized "a criminal conviction policy that disproportionately screened out African-Americans." A recent bulletin offering guidance from the EEOC on the Civil Rights Act can be found here, but the EEOC's stance on the issue has been the same for years: "Since issuing its first written policy guidance in the 1980s regarding the use of arrest and conviction records in employment decisions, the EEOC has advised employers that under certain circumstances, their use of that information to deny employment opportunities could be at odds with Title VII."

BMW 328d confirmed for New York debut

Thu, 14 Mar 2013 14:15:00 EST

Late last year, some of BMW's future diesel plans for the US market were leaked, and we learned that a diesel-powered version of the 3 Series sedan (pictured above in 335i guise) would be coming in the first quarter of 2013. That report appears to be holding true, as BMW has just confirmed the debut of the oil-burning 328d sedan as part of the company's New York Auto Show plans.
The 328d will be powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine good for 180 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The rear-wheel-drive sedan will hit 60 miles per hour in 7.2 seconds and fuel economy numbers could "well exceed" 40 miles per gallon. (Official EPA numbers will be released closer to the car's launch.)
Elsewhere on BMW's New York stand, the company will show off the 3 Series Gran Turismo that debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, as well as the Concept Active Tourer that we first saw in Paris last fall. Scroll down for the official press blast.

BMW's Quandt family in hot water over Merkel campaign contributions

Sun, 20 Oct 2013 15:00:00 EST

The mysterious and elusive Quandt family is in hot water again, nearly two years after its Nazi connections during World War II were exposed. The German family's patriarch, Herbert Quandt, nearly single-handedly saved BMW from being bought out by Daimler-Benz in 1959. Now, three living family members own nearly half of the German brand, and stand accused of buying votes with donations to the party of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, mere days ahead of a European Union vote that would cap vehicle emissions.
Merkel's conservative Christian Democratic Union accepted three donations, one from each shareholding member of the Quandt family.
Merkel's conservative Christian Democratic Union accepted three donations, one from each shareholding member of the Quandt family, totaling 690,000 euros ($935,000), on October 9. The CDU, for what it's worth, claim the donations weren't related to any political decisions and that the family have been donors for years. A Quandt family spokesperson, meanwhile, said that the family had been waiting for Germany's September 22 elections to pass before making a large contribution to the CDU.
