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.

We are proud to have been part of maintaining the heritage of this illustrious marque whether race cars and road cars; from the original CS and CSL coupes to the first true M- power BMW, the sublime M1, from the early E21 and E12 saloons to the iconic E24 M6.

    A very good first experience. Requested a simple oil/filter change, along with investigating SOS Backup Battery. The guys are knowledgable and clearly are BMW experts. Communication is good also. Will be using them going forward after rubbish customer service and pricing from Arden BMW in Tunbridge Wells.

    The usual excellence at Munich Legends today for an oil service and vehicle inspection. Sensible pricing combined with an excellent professional, friendly attitude from all staff. A highlight was the 3.3 litre E39 Alpina 5 series loan car! A terrific “old school” experience. Brilliant!

    Having not been there before I’ve ended up going to Munich Legends twice this year and on both occasions the service has been exemplary. Earlier this year they rebuilt the diff on my e39 which is not something many others can do. More recently I purchased a lovely M5 touring from them - very well prepared and priced car and an excellent service from Dan and Michelle that made for a friendly and relaxed purchase.

    The only place to get your BMW serviced. The team are real experts and do their work with passion and precision. They have looked after our M3 E90 for over 6 years... Thank you and Sean is always super helpful when explaining what is required and what has been carried out. BMW GB should recognise that their work is better than main dealers as BMW GB use Munich Legends for their heritage fleet! Thank you

    I think I must have used ML for all parts of the business by now; acquired an E30 M3 many years ago, but more recently they've worked on two other BMWs for me, followed up with selling one of them on my behalf in the last couple of weeks, so I think I'm reasonably well able to offer an informed opinion. At all times they have been professional and very knowledgeable; maybe they can be a victim of their own success on occasions, being so busy, but I'd use them over a main dealer or other specialists without hesitation, and that applies even though they're 360 miles away, which must say something!

    Great independent BMW garage. Can't recommend enough. Staff are brilliant
    Friendly staff. Lead time for a service is a reasonable 3 weeks and no problem having a loan car. Main BMW dealer is a nightmare. Now that my car is out of warranty I will use them all the time.

    I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with Munich Legends in pretty much all aspects of the BMW ownership journey covering many different generations of car. From servicing, storage and sale - all have been met with the same individual and professional touch. Dan, Stuart, and all of the team are incredibly knowledgable and their professionalism is unrivalled - this is hands down the best place to ensure your BMW is cared for how it should be. Would highly recommend

    Purchased a BMW E46 M3 from Munich Legends - a fantastic car, and a fantastic experience from beginning to end - Dan, Michelle and Stuart couldn't have been more helpful - if you're looking for a classic BMW M car, definitely check out Munich Legends - I wasn't disappointed, and I don't think you will be
