Fast-paced, wrench action-packed revival of a 1991 BMW E31 850i that was left to rot in a garage for the last 16 years before I acquired it. In this video, we bring this mighty V12 back to life.
Towards the end of the video, I made a breakdown of parts and their cost. Also, in the end I give a hint of what the next M project car is!
P.S. I upgraded the camera so the video quality should be much better!

Such a pleasure watching someone with knowledge. I had my own experience with an 850 and a "professional BMW mechanic" lmao. After 3 months in the repair shop, they called saying car is ready. It ran for 3 hours and they said not to bring it back as he confirmed this car was beyond his experience/knowledge. Unfortunately, at that time I was young and didn't have any knowledge myself so the car ended up being picked up by the NYC sanitation as it was parked for months on the streets. Sad to know such a beautiful rare car was forever gone as the city crushed it :(. Really wish I had it now.

It would not surprise me if some BMW collector buys a basket-case 850, contacts this guy and says “fix it for me please!”

I have an E39 330i and will only change if I could drive the E31 850i. These are both timeless and beautiful cars. E31 is already a collector's item and so will E39.

Just a fyi. Although those repairs are improper. A fuel tank unless having a leak allowing air in will never have enough air to cause ignition if spark is provided from the fuel pump. As a matter of fact all fuel pumps actually use the fuel as a form of cooling! I didn't know it either until a really old mechanic with 50 years of experience explained that to me after i questioned why the leads on the pumps dont have shielding where they connect.

make sure you don't accidentally make a "cold solder joint." It isn't enough to just melt the solder around the wires. You have to actually heat the wires themselves until they can melt the solder around it by themselves. Then you get a good hot joint. They call it a cold solder joint because the copper cable doesn't get hot enough to permanently join with the solder. It works for a while and then stops. My dad taught me that because he learned it in a factory where they had to hand solder 10,000 joints minimum for each pipe organ they built. If any of them went bad the organ had dead notes and they had to do it over again after the organ is installed in the church and you have very little access.

@M539 Restorations i just watched the malaga trip episode. Anyway it seemed all the maintenance was done in madrid (antonio solis s.l is located in a town near madrid). Better for the car, at least it lived in a dryer place its youngest years. Los mejores coches para comprar en españa están en madrid y alrededores, sobretodo por el clima.

There is no need to dip the wires in rosin, just get a 1-2mm thick PbSn solder with 2-3% flux. Saves time.
