Wondering what it takes to revive an old V12 BMW that spent the last decade in hibernation? This beautiful BMW 8 series was heavily neglected by its previous owner and in this video, we bring it back to life and give it a new lease of life.

  • Hey, you really need to watch out for the cords of your hoodie when looking into the engine bay with running engine. You don't want them getting caught in the fan or some other moving parts.

  • I would suggest you invest in a led headlamp. You can wear that so you can see your work, you can use your other lamp to fix somewhere near the tripod to light the video. You drop your lamp a lot!

  • Coming up: I get chased off by my evil twin... - Come here! I throw spark plugs, and we go for short but important drive. Oh, yes, we have a lift off. Welcome back to the second part of Project Bilbao. In this video, after years of neglect, we bring this 8-Series back to running and driving condition, so stick around to hear the magnificent V12 roar to life.

  • Another great video, thanks! Quick question - I’m looking into getting a vehicle lift/ramp installed and would appreciate your advice on 2 post versus 4 post lifts and would love to know the make and model of your 4 post lift as it seems very compact but also appears strong enough to lift some heavy cars. I myself have a BMW 2008 E61 535d which I love to drive and to maintain. Thanks again - you are an inspiration to maintain and restore cars properly! :)

  • it is somethimes incredible who can install Champion's Spark Plugs in an E31 V12?... without knowledge and know how these E31 can be turned in a nightmare. but very well done, just applying proper knowledge and common sense bringing back to life the E31s is a nice commitment.

  • This man stated that he is an I.T. professional, not a professional mechanic, yet his very thorough work is better than many mechanics with years of experience. He should start a business specializing in BMW restorations and tuning and he should charge plenty, like what Brabus or Reentech in Florida charges.

  • Another method for cleaning a brake fuid reservoir or coolant overflow tank/washer bottle; put some gravel in it and pretend you are centre stage at a Brazilian carnival by shaking the bottle to the beat while doing a dance. Then empty it out after and refill with cleaning fluid and repeat.

  • I’ve seen you struggle with how tight it sometimes is. I recommend you find yourself a nice set of aviation wrenches. Amazon has a few different brands. I bought the Ezarc 6 pieces 8-19 mm. The set costs less than 40 €. It works wonderfully whenever you need to get in wherever there is too tight and your wrenches are too short. 🔧
