BMW 1 series clay model
BMW  3.0 CSL Race car

During my trip to munich with a friend for the Qoros presentation  , we stopped off at the BMW museum ( would have been rude not to ) the place is amazing and full of insight and history about the company , and also some really cool cars , everything from mundane saloons to fire breathing race cars! these are only a few of the photos that i took , got to love BMW motorsport.

I highly recommend this museum as it is a petrol heads dream.
