Motorsport stripes.

I dig the "M" stripes on the AW 1M. I truly miss my e82, yes, I do..
Great thread.

I was hoping you'd swap the S65 motor in there

Thumbs up

Somebody had to do it,

i am sure glad you are the one man, and with such professionalism and determination too!

And With this type of transparencies, you wont have problem selling them...
But of course, sadly, the price wont be to the level of commitment you have given them...

Worth it nevertheless...

If one of my cars were totalled and still worth it for me to go through this type of work, i will know who to call !

I'll bet as DSC is a major pain in the ass. Intervening all the time, cutting engine power. I by default switch to DTC unless it's raining & wet. Little off topic but couldn't resist my tiny rant - it really should be less intrusive.

if the dsc were any less obtrusive i wouldn't be able to keep up with all the wrecks.... lol ... it should be mandatory that owners take some sort of driving course before buying these cars.... most people don't even know the basics of safe driving.... i see it all the time.....

Mad respect for you bro. I'm so glad someone has the heart and ambition like yourself to take on four huge liabilities and rescuing these cars.

Keep up the good work =]

Great job on restoring 1Ms back. The M stripes on white 1M look very good and original. By the way is it expensive wrapping complete car instead of painting?

So sad to see all these crashed brand new cars. But great work you bringing em back to life!!!! You should keep all four as loaner cars for your shop! Do a wrap advertising your body shop on each.
