About “Colorino”

This is just my beloved Bimmy in its original state.
213000 KM original engine and everything is working in perfect condition.
It's a real showroom car!!!!!!

About “BMW”

This is my latest acquisition... bought in April of '06, been driving it on track since February of '06. Started life as a ragged-out 325, my mechanic bought it from the owner, him and his son fixed it up... transplanted an '89 325is motor and drivetrain into it. Added a Turner chip, H&R springs, Bilstein shocks, upgraded sway bars.

Cosmetically they installed leather sport seats front and rear, some ///M guage panels, shift knob, and steering wheel. The factory bumpers were replaced with BMP fiberglass units and the car was re-painted in the factory white (off-white really). Black Borbet 5-spoke wheels were added as well.

This car serves as my daily driver and my track car. It is highly capable in both regards.

 

Specs for “Colorino”

Just check my album, I like to keep my Bimmy completely original.
I think that design engineers invest lots of time and effort to achieve the beauty and performance in this beautiful Machines. BMW are meant to be as they were designed and that's the reason why I just want to keep mine as original as I can.
