BMW Special Tools (Spezialwerkzeuge) blue book...

Aug 17 2015 10:42 PM | JohnH in History and Reference

Special Tools blue book issued during 1971. I have included the introductory letter from BMW Concessionaires G.B. Ltd as it lists prices that the dealer could pay if they were to purchase the various tools.

I have included a scan of the spine, so that those wishing to create a hard copy can make one that looks pretty authentic.

Retrofitting a BMW 2002 factory sunroof

Jul 25 2014 03:03 PM | Artcop in Body and Interior

If you have any real questions about the procedure don't hesitate to contact me through the forum, I'll be happy to share what I (now) know.
