    Bimmer Magazine e31 Buyers Guide

    Just received the latest Bimmer Magazine today in the mail - it has a great buyer's guide in it for the 8 series e31. I don't have a scanner, but it is several pages long, and seems to be well written.

    Re: Bimmer Magazine e31 Buyers Guide

    We need to really thank Bimmer Mag for all of their recent E31 support in hopes that they will continue to include 8 series tidbits in their issues. We can support in at least these two ways. A brief thank you letter or E-mail and by buying their Magazine especially when they post E31 items. Itís been done before and the recent spotlights are a result I imagine. I for one like BMW info, but I especially like it when it concerns the 8. This is what I wrote to them.


    Always been a Bimmer fan, I'm currently driving my 6th and in December before Christmas a shiny Z3 will be my 7th BMW.
    I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your recent E31 8 series support. There are very few aftermarket accessories and very few owners of this big coupe so the public support sometimes just isnít there. It is however a great car and it's nice to see that you guys at Bimmer support us with a little bit of spotlight from time to time. I show my support by buying two issues when the E31 is highlighted.
    Of course we want to see what's new too, but I think I can speak for all of us used BMW owners rare and common, when I say that your little bit of coverage goes a long way in maintaining our enthusiasm for your publication.

    From Europe, to the US to the Guys at ROADFLY and BIMMER web boards world wide, a most sincere Thank You!

    Has anyone EVER removed their

    intake manifolds just to change their spark plugs? Not that I know of. A huge misstatement in the E31 Maladies section of an otherwise fine article.

    They probably meant the heater/ac air intake,

    which makes #6 and #12 a little more visible when taken off. But even that's not a "must". Doesn't matter much though, It's a great article in every way, and very positive.Chris R

    I, too have subscribed, and written the editor...

    stating that I had subscribed speciffically because of their many articles on the 8-series. I received a short email reply thanking me for the subscriptuion, and promissing more coverage to come. Imagine my surprise upon getting my first issue in the mail and seeing the 8-series buyers guide!

    Is it my imagination, orhas there been a resurgence of interest in the 8 on the part of the mag.s?


    Regards,
    M.R.

    They told me after my email that they too love the

    8 series! So, yes, Bimmer mag is changing to be an 8 series fan publication. Hooray!
