Default Classic & Youngtimer BMWs in India

Was looking at posting these classic and youngtimer BMWs in a dedicated thread but did not find one. Thought these Bavarian beauties deserved to have a one-stop thread for us to ogle and discuss.

If any similar thread exists, request the mods to merge it.

Kicking off this thread with this stunning 1976/77 BMW E21 318 Coupe. An absolute stunner, this one is still a WIP. Has had a LOT of work gone into it, I've seen it before the revamp and it is only seen to be believed!

Hope to see more of these kidney grilled beauties out on here, especially the older ones which are more elusive generally.

When the regular limo models aren't baller enough, you get the extended version of the already long wheelbase 'iL' variants of the E38 .
The amazing BMW L7 seen in Mumbai.

I am totally flabbergasted by the new design trend at BMW. I understand that we cannot go back to making cars so beautiful like the youngtimer era Bimmers due to safety regulations, but even Mercedes-Benz and Audi has to work around those very same safety regulations and yet they are able to pull off new car designs better than BMW! In my opinion, the F10 BMW was the final BMW that has its proportions and stance of a BMW that we all know of and I urge everyone who has the F10 and older Bimmers to not sell them off. GTO's F10 530d is an absolute drool worthy beauty! Thank you for starting this amazing thread. Keep them coming

Saw this E36 316i in Goa. Apparently has been parked where it is for quite a while now.
