That is so incredibly relatable. Not as exciting in some ways as the more exotic machinery—I mean, who doesn't like watching a stripped down 12 dance?—but when I saw that reveal, my heart rose in song.

This is quite the project car, for sure! Mechanically and cosmetically, a ton of work for Sreten! Love to know how many actual work / man hours go into each project.

Really enjoyed the E39 episode.

Looking forward to the E92 and the Swedish M5, too!

Been watching him for a while. He's a master at restoring these BMWs! For some odd reason, I hope he keeps the Alpina. He put his heart and a ton of work into that car.

Literally just got done laughing at that part.

I'm thinking OEM plus in SretenSpeak = aftermarket = don't tell TUV.

This. He said something about not recording the part where he's "fixing" the cat.

Anyone know if there is an exemption from the TUV if a car is considered vintage? Or just past a certain amount of years old.
