Mobile Tradition is a subsidiary of BMW AG, right now they are residing
in temporary offices in different places in Munich. Later this year,
Mobile Tradition will move into their new building, that is beeing
constructed next to the BMW Museum in Munich. I had the pleasure to
listen to Mobile Tradition's president, Dirch-Henning Strassl, a couple
of weeks ago when he talked about what Mobile Tradition is.
Mobile Tradition has two major tasks:
- To collect, and make available to the public, interesting vehicles
and other items with connection to BMW (not necessarily BMW's).
The BMW Museums in Munich and at the Spartanburg/SC plant are run
by Mobile Tradition, but there are collections in other places, too
(if you ever get a chance, try and see the race car collection at
BMW M GmbH in Garching, Munich).
- To make it possible for owners of older BMW vehicles to keep their
cars and motorcycles in good condition. For that purpose, Mobile
Tradition has gathered all spare parts for older models (for the
moment up to E21 3-series) from the dealerships and other places,
and stock them in a warehouse in Munich. They have also taken up
production of NLA items, such as 02 trailing arms, 02 fronts,
00 fenders, E9 coupe floor panels and many other parts, some of
them at tremendous cost and effort.
These parts can be ordered via any BMW dealership.
