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 car has not been driven much in the last 15 years so they could use a cleaning. the pedal feels a little weird and i traced it to a couple of small bushings
that need to be replaced by the firewall behind the brake booster. the car originally had a/c and most of it is
still there but it is not working and i have not looked into why.
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 calling in 76k vehicles over airbag issues

Mon, 16 Dec 2013

Vehicles these days are typically fitted with a mat in the front passenger seat that determines whether that airbag needs to be activated in the event of a collision and how it should deploy. But that system doesn't always work, as Mercedes recently found in its SL-Class roadster and as Suzuki did before it with the Grand Vitara and SX4 crossovers. Now a crop of BMW vehicles have befallen the same issue, prompting the Bavarian automaker to cooperate with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to issue a recall for the vehicles in question.
The problem affects precisely 76,565 vehicles, including certain the 3 Series (sedan and wagon), 5 Series, 7 Series and X5 crossover families spanning the 2006 and 2007 model years and fitted with a certain type of seat. However, since the parts to repair the problematic components are not currently available, as you can see from the recall notice below, it won't be until March 2014 when local dealers will be able to resolve the issue.

BMW i Collection puts upscale treehugging in the palm of your hand

Sun, 22 Sep 2013

If BMW's new i sub-brand sounds more like it belongs to consumer electronics than it does to automobiles, that's probably no mistake. After all, electric vehicles bridge the gap between conventional automobile and electronic gadget - just ask our compatriots over at Engadget that report on them all the time. But to drive the point home even greener, BMW has, together with the new i3, launched a new collection of electronics accessories that make the Bavarian automaker as much a competitor with companies like Belkin or Griffin as it is with Audi or Mercedes-Benz.
The new BMW i Collection includes items like a solar charger for phones and MP3 players, a laptop bag made from felt-like recycled PET plastic and vegetable-tanned leather, and of course the requisite USB dongle. Other items include keyfobs, a shopping bag, notebook and ballpoint pen.
All the items, of course, are designed to extend the i3's upscale tree-hugging image to items you can hold and use while your EV is charging in the driveway. They go on sale starting next month with prices ranging from 15 euros ($20) for the pen or lanyard to 99 euros ($135) for the shopping bag. Details in the press release below and images of the whole collection in the gallery above.

BMW pondering hardcore M4 to celebrate 100 years?

Thu, 03 Oct 2013

2013 is the year for Lamborghini, Aston Martin and the Porsche 911, but 2016 will be the year for BMW. That's when the Munich-based maker of the Ultimate Driving Machine will celebrate its 100th birthday, with what will probably be a year-long celebration. Part of that 365-day party will, reportedly, be an even hotter version of the new BMW M4, which is set to debut in January at the Detroit Auto Show.
Yes, according to Australia's Car Sales, the über-M4 has been hinted at by higher-ups at BMW's M division, who claim the rear seats will be removed, much like the M3 GTS, while other weight-saving measures will be used to try and bring the M4's weight below 3,000 pounds. There's no mention of engine mods, but if the M4's biturbocharged six is as good as we think it'll be, that's not a deal-breaker for us.
The lightening process on the so-called M4 GTS would involve replacing the hood and front fenders with parts made of carbon fiber, while the doors would switch from steel to aluminum. Besides the deletion of the rear seats, Car Sales is predicting lightweight racing buckets, with a carbon-fiber shell and a minimal amount of padding. Expect lots and lots of Alcantara, in place of leather.
