Zandvoort – Historic Grand Prix 2015

This weekend was the Historic Grand Prix in Zandvoort (HGP) and BMW attended with their Classic division. Besides their demo-run with several cars, there was much more to see. All-in-all a great event which is a must see for the oldtimer/youngtimer enthusiast!

Here are some pictures, mostly BMW for some reason :-)

New Radio installed – Bavaria Mono Digital

Recently I installed a more period correct radio in my E28 B7. The previous one was a 90’s style Alpine Radio, but this one clearly didn’t match the look and feel of the rest of the car.

It is one of the most basic I could find; no cassette, obviously no CD, only 3 preset stations and MONO! It is however digital and with automatic search function. I really like it and think it fits much better in the E28. Hope you enjoy the pics:

PS: the electronic unit you see in the space below is the brain of the Alpina display. Here used to be a cassette-holder as well, but with this new radio I won’t need it anymore. And some extra storage space in the dash isn’t too bad either.

Trial with Hartge 8×16 wheels (offset ET25 and ET13)

Even though these are normally not my favourites, I thought I’d give it a go.
And to my surprise, the result isn’t so bad.

These wheels have different offset front and rear; ET25 and ET13. And as I already had spacers before, I left them here as well (5mm front and 10mm rear).

USA Trip November 2014 – Florida

Did a small road trip through Forida this November. Driving, diners, coffee and motels; that’s what it was all about. First with a Camaro, but couldn’t resist to change it to the new Mustang 2015 when I had the chance. Which is a really wonderful car, way above it’s competition from Chevy and Dodge. Enjoy the pics.
