    The font being different on the 2 valve covers really bothers me.

      I really have no clue what that was/is...a better idea now. perhaps I'm cheap, but who has 80K to drop on something like that??? I guess I'm doing it wrong. (life I mean)...If you guys have some ideas, let me know.

        Mostly high end collectors. I know a couple guys who would do it in a heart beat if they had the car it belonged in like group 5 chassis.

          Most of you don't geek out over fire extinguishers, but here's what I've managed to collect. left is a modern BMW OEM Gloria 1kg powder-type FE, middle is OEM Gloria 2kg Halon FE, and right is Mercedes OEM Minimax 2kg Halon FE. Below them is LHD BMW bracket.

          The RHD bracket is a different part number. Below, you can see one installed on my passenger seat. If you install it on the driver seat, you won't be able to reach the handle to slide the seat forward/backward.

          I like the period-correct seat belt buckle strap, and with a little modification, I was able to make it work with modern BMW FE and the Mercedes FE.

            That engine was originally built as a Formula 2 engine (2 liter, NA) At the time the BDG Cosworth was the engine of choice at 300 hp, the M12 BMW was making 325hp. They also were used in the 2 liter sports racers of the day (Lola, Chevron, Oscella, March) They did use them in Group 5 touring cars but very quickly were out gunned by the turbo cars. Then Paul Rosche began the modifications to build the 1.5 liter Turbo F1 engine from this basic design and in Group 5 racing the engine was run as a 2 liter and 2.1 liter Turbo in the 320i

              Jeez, that M12 though. Would love to have a vintage "engine" collection under glass. M12, Cosworth DFV, Etc.

                I need that bracket!!! Does the modern extinguisher fit in the bracket?

                  ^^^ Yes, the old FEs came with a cradle, while the new FEs use a "spine." But both have holes that line up with the holes on the bracket.

                  See above pic, on the right is the "spine" FE holder, in the middle is the cradle, and on the left is a cradle that I mod'ed to fit the Mercedes halon FE.

                        I agree. Alpina 3 spoke is about the only other one i really like.

                            I'm hoarding them. If I think of selling I'll contact you first.

                              Cool, mines getting fairly weathered. It also took forever to find the 3bolt hub
