Guaranteed to come to the rescue of owners attempting to determine which parts, accessories, and colors will restore their M-Series BMW to factory-original condition, this new title in the Bay View Original Series begins with the introduction of the M1 supercar in 1979 and continues through two generations each of the M3 and M5, as well as the production of the 1996 M635csi. Color photography offers detail shots and full views taken in Germany, Great Britain, the U.S., and South Africa (the nation in which the M5 was built). Special attention is given to the differences between model years.Those who seek the original purity of what BMW built need some kind of authenticity guide to help them restore a car ro the way it was when it left the factory. ... I also elected to cover only those model-ranges which had finished production at the time of writing; thus the latest E39 M5, E46 M3, ... Establishing accurate production figures and car number (VIN) sequences, for example, was one problem.
