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 didn’t have the pleasure of meeting the team but they were all very professional over the phone and via email, they fixed an issue on my e60 diesel which was preventing the car from starting and got me back on the road, hassle free experience and report given on the car with tyre treads and advisories saving a headache when the MOT comes around.
    Amazing service

    Fantastic service from Munich Legends on my BMW 2002. Amazing how many so-called BMW specialists don't want to work on the older stuff, but no such qualms with ML. Great, honest garage. Will definitely go back. Thank you.
    Super company friendly staff and very professional

    I had heard good things about ML and saw them carry out some work on a YouTubers channel so I thought I’d look them up, I was very impressed with there website and pictures of works they had carried out on other BMW vehicles I called them up and arranged for my e46 330ci to be looked at by them On arrival I massively impressed with the showroom and collection of cars (I was offered a coffee while enjoying a BMW magazine) I found Stuart and others very polite and respectful As I had travelled 40odd miles to centre they was aware I needed a car and gave me a lovely BMW Alpina for my journey home which was a lovely touch. The problem on my car was sorted with total transparency along the way and I couldn’t be happier with my car and ML service provided I would 100% recommend ML and I will return for my BMW needs Well done Munich Legends

    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 have been taking both my E60 M5 and lately my E92 LE500 M3 here for the last 15 years. As always, great service, great expertise, great knowledge, great staff. No hesitation in recomending this very professional set up to everyone who needs BMW specialist workmanship.
