BMW restoration - Our heritage

The world-renowned Munich Legends restoration team have restored, raced, repaired, sourced and sold some of the greatest BMWs in the world.

From a works Roberto Ravaglia DTM touring car to Nicki Lauda’s championship winning M1 procar, celebrated Group A cars such as Hans Stuck’s 635 and the world famous Group 2 Gosser Beer CSL Batmobile driven by Dieter Quester, to some of the world’s most iconic production BMWs – from the stunning E9 3.0 CSL – probably our ‘signature car’ – to Europe’s first production turbo, the 2002, BMW’s first super-saloon, the E3 3.0L si, and the first M touring, the E34 M5, as well as, of course, the all conquering E30 M3. We’ve restored rare beasts such as the Alpina B7s turbo and of course BMW’s only supercar, the Legendary M1. Our reputation has been built on a warm relationship with our owners, a refusal to compromise, an exceptional eye for quality and pure, unbridled passion.

    I recently underwent crash repair services by ML, and I must say the level of service was truly exceptional. They efficiently coordinated the retrieval of my car from another BMW main dealer for a quote. Surprisingly, their pricing surpassed that of the BMW main dealer by an impressive 50%, without compromising on the quality of work. While I hope to avoid the need for future crash repairs, I am now inclined to entrust ML with all my servicing needs based on this positive experience. Highly recommended for their competitive pricing and top-notch service.

    I can’t say enough good things about my experience here. All I can say is that they definitely live up to their name. Took my e30 bauer in for full service as car had been sitting in garage for years and was running really rough. Thanks to Sean and team car now runs like new. So impressed. Thank you. Gavin.

    I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Munich Legends, and my experience was nothing short of exceptional. As a BMW enthusiast but rookie, I was in need of some expert advice, and I decided to reach out to Munich Legends based on their stellar reputation in the automotive community. What set Munich Legends apart was their willingness to share their specialist BMW knowledge for free. This level of commitment to customer satisfaction is truly commendable. I initially contacted them seeking advice on a technical issue I was facing with my BMW, and to my surprise, they were more than happy to assist. The standout individual during my interaction was Nick from the parts department. Nick's depth of knowledge and passion for BMWs were evident from the outset. Not only did he provide valuable insights into resolving my issue, but he went above and beyond by offering additional tips and tricks on where to find certain parts that are no longer made. It's not every day that you come across a business that genuinely cares about its customers and takes the time to share its expertise without any financial obligation. Munich Legends' commitment to fostering a sense of community among BMW enthusiasts is truly commendable. The wealth of knowledge and genuine passion for these iconic vehicles that Munich Legends embodies is a testament to their status as a true asset to the BMW community. In conclusion, my experience with Munich Legends was nothing short of legendary. The free expert advice, especially from Nick in the parts department, showcased their dedication to customer satisfaction and their commitment to fostering a strong BMW enthusiast community. I highly recommend Munich Legends to anyone seeking top-notch service, genuine expertise, and a true passion for BMWs.

    Took my BMW F30 335D here for a gearbox service. I provided my own parts and the work was completed within 1 day and was available to collect the following morning. Having struggled to find a garage that would offer this service for a reasonable price, I'm glad I found Munich Legends, the hourly rate is £99+VAT, much cheaper than a main dealer. I took the offer up of a loan car which happened to be a manual Mini Cooper S.. quite a nippy car too! The car can be loaned either on a "replace the fuel you use" or "0.30 pence per mile" basis. Total cost for their work was £118.90, using provided parts. Overall highly recommended and would definitely use going forward for servicing and repairs.
