S52 Engine Swap + Carmel Artomobilia Photos!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  We’ll be enjoying a little time at Auburn over this holiday weekend, as well as spending time with family and friends.   We hope you have a fun-filled weekend too!  Please note that Reggie’s Motorworks will be closed on Monday, September 2nd, in observance of Labor Day.
In just a few short weeks, Hoosier BMW will be hosting the Hoosier Vintage in conjunction with their New Member Picnic.  Space is limited!  Click here to register and to get more information on this exciting event!  It will take place at beautiful Eagle Creek Park, Saturday, September 14th.  If you want more vintage bimmer goodness, join the caravan to Windy City BMW’s VintageFest the following day!

 

The 5-series, our 1995 BMW 525i, is in the shop for her engine swap – an S52 B32 out of a ’97/’98 M3.
