Pandemic birthdays are weird.
There’s a simple difference between incompetently hacking up a perfectly good shell “because ‘racecar’” and confidently building a rough and tumble street machine that’s down for whatever.

From the 2002 and the 507 to the M1 and the Z1, there’s literally dozens of Bimers we’d like to learn more about—but where do you start? E30, naturally.
