For many of us, our BMW is our first car. It is not only transportation but something that becomes a part of us. It could be the first car you got your drivers license in, it could be the car you took your prom date in, or it could be the first car you took on the race track. Whatever your story is, it's still a mechanical object and will eventually break. Most of these BMWs we are tinkering with are 25-30 years old now.
Luckily BMWs, are a great car to learn to wrench on, probably because they break so much. I started wrenching on BMWs well over a decade ago and have gained a wealth of knowledge along the way. My favorite part about BMWs is actually the community. In the past we had forums, which was a gold mine for BMW knowledge. Forums are long gone, and social media groups have popped up. Social media is great way to find instant answers, but it is not great for archiving data. If you want to know how to perform a certain task on your BMW where can you go?
