    Hello Elliot, found this site while looking for 700s parts...what luck!

    I have a 700s cabrio as well as a sport coupe, both 1964. The cabrio is stock, low milage and very original, almost to the paint. The coupe is a clean candidate for restoration and seems as if it's previous life was one of sport. Both are models with twin carbs & exhausts. and the coupe has an exhaust similar to your photos, but with an equalizing pipe between the headers at the front of the engine. I would appreciate any assistance with performace mods/identification and parts sources you may offer.

    Many thanks! Russell

    Nice to see we get this many classic car lovers on a single post, and as many with the good taste for the tiny BMW.

    That's a nice pair you have there Russell.

    In name of the ones who can rarely see one of those beautys, I'd like to ask you for some photos of your nice pair when you find the time for it. Congratulations and good luck with the restoration.

    I am a BMW lover so I am biased... but the old BMW 700 RS, LS and CS are beautiful. This car has "old world" charm and beauty. Also, I love the interior of the old BMW 700.

    It is nice to find enthusiasts for these cars as it's been a little frustrating searching the web... most sites are in Europe with only a little history posted which is readily available from several books already in my library. All good, but finding owners who can share knowledge is better.

    Indeed they are nice cars, and while badgering the owner over 12 years to sell the cabrio, we ultimately did the deal on trade for parts to restore his 2800cs... and insisted the deal was null unless I took the coupe as well. I wasn't interested until taking a good look at it, but now I'm hooked, and want to see what kind of performance can be wrung from that little engine. If the stock engine in the cabrio is any indication, there's lots of room left to modify & tune the coupe.

    Will have the cabrio ready to finish in a few short weeks and will post photos then. Will also post some of my 3.0CSiL...

    BMW 700 Cabrio & Coupe

    Many thanks, Elliott... great photos of your cars! I was an active member in BMWCCA for 15 years and recall being told of your treasures some time ago.
    Being more interested in vintage and particularly air-cooled autos has made
    quite a difference in my garage since leaving the club.

    Please advise the best way to contact you regarding 700 parts and tech assistance... I can be reached at bamboorm@aol.com

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yup... nearly done although a repaint is still to come. By pure serendipity I found this site (UCP) which put me in touch with 700rs so hopefully will be able to even get a proper exhaust system for it as well. As a new member I gotta give kudos, this is a great forum.

    Here's another bright thing:
    http://home.aol.com/wfpaul1/MicroSouth2006.html

    Elliott tipped me to this (hope to meet the owner of the extraordinary 700RS!) and since it's only a few hours from home, gonna go and mingle with the faithful I promise to post photos upon return....

    Oh, pix of my CSL were posted last week. Not great, it's in my shop. Will get it outside for better ones ASAP and post to the correct section, Matt's Hi-Res Hangout...where it'll be "egg-nogged". BTW, where the hell does that term come from?

    Looking forward to see the result of your future work on the 700, and also to see the RS pics.

    Those tiny car events must be great. I love all of those car in the little drawings: the Vespa 400, the Goggomobil, the odd-looking Multipla and such.

    I have missed the pics of your CSL. Every pic from a CSL is great.
    I will be glued to the screen, waiting for the "hangout" pics.

    The term Egg-Nog is due to the member who came up with the idea of the ownership proof. His username is Egg-nog.

    If there's a way to move 'em to the hangout, I'll do it.... meantime, here they are:

    Like I said, they aren't great photos, but will post better ones soon... I owe this car the attention it deserves, there just aren't enough hours in a day.

    Absolutely gorgeous looking car! Congrats for your nice taste.
    It may not be the real thing, but it's a very decent replica. I love it.

    It's not a replica... per my avatar CSL177, this is CSL #2275177, built September 1972. Quite original... even the Scheel seats have the original upholstery, the car having only driven about 80,000 kilometers since new. The "batmobile" package wasn't offered until mid-1973. I have those parts but have never installed them. The original windsplits came with the car and are in decent shape, and perhaps I'll install those along with the roof spoiler at some point, although it would be nice to find some Zender ones to use instead (to keep the originals in good nick).The trunk spoiler is also original to the car, and though the rear wing looks neat, it's pretty heavy, and wasn't originally installed on this car.

    It currently has the original 3003cc EFI engine. I'm installing the later M motor simply because I want more horsepower. The original engine will be crated and stored.

    The tell-tale that this is a CSL (besides the VIN number) is the lack of bumper mounts in the front valance, and you'll see in the next group of photos the GRP rear bumper. I'll be sure to include lots of detail shots for the authenticity freaks.
