Now there's a name I haven't heard in a while.. Eric Kerman.  I see this motor didn't last long and someone got a nice deal.  I have an Eric Kerman massaged head on my E32, what a difference it made.


Good luck to Eric in retirement!

I got the second to last one....


A Maestro.  A wonderful resource and a font of information and experience. I've had the benefit of his work several times over the years, on British and other German cars. 


Thank you Eric. You will be missed.
