E30’s Rarest Part!

E30’s RAREST Part! I’ve always admired conceptual designers like Tobias Wong, Matty Benedetto, and Katerina Kamprani for their ability to come up with Industrial Designs which aren’t necessarily useful. In fact, sometimes these ideas are absurdly, and intentionally not useful.  Anyone who has known me for any amount of time knows I’m a bit of a jokester, but for… Continue reading E30’s Rarest Part!

E46 power window lever

E46 power window lever We love the E30! At least enough to name our startup after it. But we understand that not everyone is fortunate enough to drive God’s Chariot! And that’s OK!

One thing is for sure, the power window buttons in the E30 are virtually indestructible.… Continue reading E46 power window lever

Klaus Luthe’s 91st Birthday

You might be shocked to find this out, but I have a serious thing for cars. To the point that might be an understatement. And slight character flaw.

Now you can get an original-style fuse-snatcher - the E30's tiniest accessory!

Hi, Michael here! Time for a long personal story about fuse pullers that nobody asked for! That probably sounds ridiculous for something as inconsequential as a fuse puller, but it’s a big part of the E30 Update journey! I grew up in the back seats of air-cooled Volkswagens and eventually my first car, which I… Continue reading The E30’s Tiniest Accessory!

E30 Cigarette Lighter Retainer Clip

E30 Cigarette Lighter Retainer Clip In true old-school BMW fashion, E30s were not equipped with cup holders. While not as much of a space hog, they were able to find a spot for a cigarette lighter (where you plug in your USB dock ;)) in the center console. While nearly every car ever made after… Continue reading E30 Cigarette Lighter Retainer Clip
