Hello,

Posting the pictures now...

The K75 was in a project state, as I acquired it and it's very pretty right now ;)
It does not look much different today, apart from some engine parts been painted. Yes may not resemble a original K75, especially with the dodgy street fighter style headlight.
I have received some fairings and the electric windscreen separately with it.

Welcome. Great looking rides! Makes me miss the '81 320i I drove like a hooligan, and eventually sold to a college student. You have stellar countryside to toodle about.

Well thank you :)

The E30 means a world to me. I can't see myself ever selling it and I hope I won't ever have to.

Yup, South Wales great roads and great views but short summer :)

Hey Mlytle. What a great collection :) Love the E30 M3 and the 2002! The M3 is one of my favourite cars ever. I wish I lived nearby so I could pop over to admire in person.

Does the bastard child of BMW get a nod? 2005 Mini Cabrio S, last of the supercharged and body style, first of the cabrio's. Just hit 65k and on the 4th set of tires ... it drives nice ;)

Sounds lovely, never had a go in one, but seen a number of positive reviews on them. Remember though, front wheel drive is a drivetrain of satan ;)

nice drive, and interesting battle at the end!  what spec are those cars built to?
had to adjust to the reversed video view...;-)

have not been to Laguna, just most of the east coast US tracks.

some E30 race car video.  practice day while i was instructing a school.  (and yes...that noise is a wheel bearing on its last legs.....)

Nice to see some extracurricular BMW enthusiasts.

Missed my chance at getting into an E30 M3 before prices skyrocketed, but I have owned/currently own a few, and others.

E30 318i (M10)
E30 325i (M20B28)
'08 X3 3.0si
'14 X1 35i

Along with the two Bricks.
