It's basically a 5 series car, but exterior & interior are unique only to the 6. And all the other stuff needed. I like being able to have the part I need without going out to find it. Car parts just take up too much space. I need spares for my R80.

And I have had to throw some parts out over the years just because they'd be too much trouble to ship. That's hard to do knowing someone might be able to use it. It's been a couple years since I threw any out because of that. I can't wait until I have spares for my air head. I do all my own work & to me spares are invaluable. I'm able to drive my bimmer & Volvo wagons because of my stash. No one else touchs my machines.

it IS addictive!

Amen. You're preaching to the wrong choir here. I've got my /5 collection and I'm still lugging parts around for a 43 year old fling with BMW 02 cars.

I do need to find a good home for the BMW car parts.

Such is life in the Niche World. If you're getting tired of hauling Junque around, find a good home for those babies.... :)
