Supercharged B7 from Chicago

Post by music » Sat Mar 19, 2022 11:48 pm

Rarely do I watch any 'how to do-it-yourself' videos because a DIY edited DIY video of a DIY fix doesn't cut it for me, but this one is an exception: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVM3xeC ... storations

Filmed in a series of 30 - 40 minute episodes it shows what can happen when you a buy a US$4,000 E65 B7 with the N62 V8 engine unseen in Chicago and have it shipped back home to Germany. Live with the quirky early humour (it gets less and better) and watch a real enthusiast do a proper job. It's current, with 2022 footage and I can't tell you how much respect I have for this guy. If only my local BMW dealer .....

Watch and enjoy.

Posted on the general forum by mistake. Didn't realise there was a a separate video thread and that Sreten was already known on here. My apologies to admin.

His videos are fantastic aren't they - I'm a big fan. I was waiting for the day he might buy an Alpina. Project Chicago has certainly been a roller coaster journey for him, finding out it needed a full rebuild, but it's been great to follow the story. He's doing a great job.
