|1983 BMW R65 For Sale|
The BMW R65 is on the block. I have acquiesced. Any hope of any further fun in my life is foolhardy, I'm giving up.
|Stamped in the frame, from the days when we used to have to discriminate between East & West Germany. Not that there were ever any East German goods for sale in the West.|
Meanwhile my BMW car lost a cylinder the other day. I figured it was a coil pack, which looked like it was under warranty, so I took the car in. It was indeed a coil pack, so they replaced all 6, plus new micro filter and wiper blades, fluids and tires topped-up, plus a nice car wash. And a latte. And I got to drive a new 528 for 2 days. Took me a while to figure out how to drive it, they don't have shift levers or brake levers anymore, everything's buttons. All gratis.
New coil packs might have cost me $150 but it would have taken me 2 days to put in.
I think I need to unload the car before warranty expires in January.
