    Hi! I'm Colin, just purchased my first BMW - jumped right into the deep end with a Euro '84 520i with an E36 M3 drivetrain and various other M3 and M5 parts.  German Buick Grand National, I guess.  Flying out to the east coast tomorrow to pick it up and then drive it home.  Always been a VW/Porsche guy, now I'm expanding my horizons...a little.  In the Madison area, Middleton specifically.
    Dealer photos below, more to come, I'm sure!

    I was secretly hoping to cause some domestic conflict w/ whether this wood or wood not be allowed to to be hung up, but you having a shop took a little of the fun out of it.
    Regardless, it's always fun to use the cnc at work for projects where tolerances don't matter.

    The key part is soft maple and the handle is "Peruvian Walnut", where "Peruvian" means imported and "Walnut" means brown; aka imported brown wood.

    I got this epic BMW key to hold my keys! This will be perfect to replace the Chinesium plastic one I have currently. Thanks Santa! 

    For scale the roundel looks to be the size for a hood emblem.

    Opened up my box this morning to find one of @B C's famous christmas renditions
    Do you Hear What I Hear?
    Said the girl friend of the 5er driver,
    do you see what I see?
    Right there on the dash, 5er driver,
    do you see what I see?
    A light, a light, flashing in the night
    With a noise that gives you a fright
    With a noise that gives you a fright
    Said the brother of the 5er driver,
    do you hear what I hear?
    Clanking from the front, both could hear,
    Yes I hear what you hear
    A knock, a knock, coming from the block
    You have got to be kidding me please
    You have got to be kidding me please
    Said the 5-er driver to his brother,
    do you know what I know?
    In your drain pan there's a shiny thing,
    do you know what I know?
    It's wild, it's wild the filter's not that old
    But the drain pan is all filled with gold
    But the drain pan is all filled with gold
    Said Blackstone to the 5er driver,
    Listen to what I say
    Pray for luck, because we think you're fucked,
    There is copper every-where!
    There is copper every-where!
    The oil, the oil, it really isn't right
    That five twenty Is much much too light

    Enclosed was a Official BMW safety vest kit for when I inevitably get stranded by German reliablility and some hot sauce! Thanks Brian!

    Dave, I had to check on the Autobahn one to be sure since I've always just run the south course.
    After the drop off post on Sunday I figured Chris had paired us up. Glad you like the key chain. I remembered the "Bassboy" correction from an earlier thread involving assorted fish pics. 😁

    Installed black anodized pedal covers from Turner Motorsports. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the way the rubber blocks on the existing pedal covers feel. Turner owes me a couple pieces of hardware as they were missing from the box but im sure they will have no problem sending what was missing so I will give them a call tomorrow.

    Although I am not a fan of the Road Glide fairing (I prefer the batwing, just personal preference), that's a damn nice looking bike! I have debated selling my Sportster 1200 Forty-Eight and getting a new Fat Bob with the 114 engine. I test rode one and it fucking moves.

    Good news! Insurance payout came late last week, Not Totaled! They didn't even put up a fight after I denied their initial value and took my word on the current values, so glad this didn't turn into a nightmare battle like I've read about for others. The current auction price insanity on anything old and manual sure helps.
    All the parts new were available from BMW to repair this, the fender was the only part that needed to come over from Germany but I still hunted around for used parts. It didnt make too much sense to just paint a new door/fender when the whole car needs paint. Car-Part was a joke and prices were premium as well. LKQ pick and pull has a great CURRENT website for listing inventory so I scoured that around the country. There were at least 2 black E34's and several other colors as well among the Los Angeles area yards so I took the gamble on the parts I wanted being there.
    Luckily a side job gave me the opportunity to drive a 2020 F350 out west. I ended up going to 3 different LA LKQ yards and pulled the front doors off one and a fender off another, all perfectly rust free in Schwartz II. The fender does have a good dent towards the nose but paint isn't cracked and should be PDR'd easily. Bought a driver's door too since the door stay was ripped out when the car was bought. $150 total for all the parts was crazy cheap.

    Gonna wait to install these come spring as it's cold and I still have remodeling projects to tend too. I also want to rust proof each fender while off and clean things up.
