First Drive in 10 Years - Garden Find V12 BMW E31 850i Revival - Project Marseille: Part 4

28. april. 2021
280 285 Ganger

In the previous episode, we got this legendary E31 running and in this one after long 10 years, it's back in drivable condition again! We sort out the sinking clutch pedal, brakes, cooling system and throttle bodies. Towards the end of the video, we also talk about the future plans for this project.

  • Just to add a couple more things. Calypso red is staying and it'll get a fresh paint job at one point. The engine is currently working great, but it will eventually need the timing chain replaced because of the noise, hence the idea to go 3 million steps further and do the upgrades I mentioned in the video. Don't expect a new episode on this project any time soon as I first need to find a bigger place in order to get the ball rolling with this build!

    • i'd try to restore the original paint, in doubt give the car to professional detailers. It'll save the value of the car (because a repaint rises doubt of accident free sheet metal). Sorry for my faulty wnflish. Greets from Germany.

  • I’m a Benz collector. As part of my collection I have a CL600 V12 biturbo in that similar colour red. My car has a tinge of purple to it. And washed and clean it looks amazing. My advice is to clean a polish one side and look at it and you’ll be convinced to keep that colour.

  • FYI figured out why he sold previous 850s half finished: He has fully done another black 850 before youtube (TUV and all) that took ages to sell, while the half done (very well done tbh) gets sold as a successful project. More importantly, by registering it in Germany he essentially limits the buyers to Germany while in "export mode" from COO it can be more easily bought by anyone in Europe, or outside it. Who also gets to keep the yellow headlights.

As for finding a bigger place, have you considered renting an "industrial unit" as they are called in UK? I must admit I was shocked when you mentioned "hot dogging (LOL)" that venerable old gentleman of a 8-series! No respect for your elders lol

I have a 1991 bmw e36 325i that im restoring and I want to be able to read the codes. how do you do that I've seen you pull code but you dont metion what you use and what program you're running on you laptop (maybe you have but then I missed it) I really love what you do and how you do it and it would be great if you can help me out :) the 325i is Calypso red BTW I honestly wish you the best and good luck with your NOworld adventure.

For this e31 I love this color combination (though blue is also my favorite color as well) I wouldn't re-paint the whole car. If this is a too-long-term project you could also sell this car once it gets TüV. I'm pretty sure you could find a new owner rather easily. Who knows, it could go back to France ?

  • It would be nice to see how the discs (rotors) cleaned up during those stops. I never fit new pads and discs to garden finds like this straightaway. I simply make sure pistons and slide pins are doing what they should and let them clean up 'naturally' by themselves; then reassess later. Can we see how the discs and brakes generally have responded during these short braking runs please?
