Subject: <E3,9,12,21,23,24,Z1, etc> Classic parts CD Rom available
I found this today.
The CD-ROM parts catalogue for BMW
classic models is available through BMW
dealers by quoting order number
72 00 0 035 315.
Countless enthusiasts around the world spend a great deal of time, money
and effort on restoring and preserving classic BMW cars and motorcycles.
One of BMW Mobile Tradition's core tasks is therefore to guarantee the
supply of spare parts with the aim of securing and expanding the stock
of classic models by steadily increasing the range of parts available. A
host of activities in this area have already brought about substantial
results in a relatively short space of time. Old stock has been secured
through repurchasing, while especially rare objects have been faithfully
reproduced in elaborate remanufacturing procedures. After just three
years, these parts now comprise a range of more than 14,000 items.
The acquisition, production and storage of parts presents a major
challenge which could not be met without an effektive logistical system.
Each classic spare part has therefore been given its own list number and
printed catalogues have been published to enable all BMW dealers to
provide information on the availability and price of parts and to handle
A CD-ROM parts catalogue for the current model range is already
available. lt was thus only logical to use the same medium for
cataloguing classic parts as well.
BMW Mobile Tradition is now able to offer BMW dealerships and interested
customers a clearly structured catalogue of historic parts on CD-ROM,
modelled on the existing catalogue of current BMW parts and components.
The CD-ROM is compatible with current DOS, Windows and UNIX systems and
lists some 60,000 parts with illustrations. The main focus is naturally
on the models going back 15 to 40 years, i. e. the Isetta, New Class, 02
Series, E3, E9, E12, E21, E23, E24 and Z1, though parts remanufacturing
for the BMW 700, the V8-models and even some prewar models, as well as
classic BMW motorcycles built between 1948-69, is also in progress.
The information contained on this CD-ROM goes well beyond the realm of
spare parts and includes details of dealers and workshop equipment,
operating facilities, repair kits and accessories.
The CD-ROM also provides the names of contacts at Mobile Tradition for
queries concerning spares, as well as a 4-page CD cover card with
installation instructions and telephone hotline information.
lt is planned to issue an updated and expanded version of the catalogue
on roughly a yearly basis.
