50 Years of the M30 Engine

Post by sansouci » Wed Nov 06, 2019 9:46 pm

The November 2019 issue of BMW Car published a story on the M30 engine. Not as detailed as I'd like it but it's not terrible.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll look for it at my local Barnes and Noble this weekend.

Any chance they published this on line as well :-k

Sounds like worthy reading, regardless of the content and detail [-o<
