8,888 8ers in the 8Coupe archive... and more!

A very busy year of the 8Coupe team has led to another milestone - more than 9,000 cars were in the archives at the end of May 2013 and en route in the same month we also passed the "magic" 8er number of 8,888 cars.

 We are only a few cars shy of 30% (9187 cars) of the entire worldwide production and already a wide margin beyond the past ambitious long term target of 25% (7655 cars) reached in February 2012. 

The size of the entire 8Coupe archive has grown to 33 GB data containing near 240.000 files of which 145.000 are car pictures and almost 29.000 are PDF documents relating to specific cars.

Tyre Pressure Control was installed in 11 E31 prototypes before the decision must have been made that the system was not yet ready for public consumption. The button depicted above can be seen in the BMW convertible prototype which is currently on display in the Munich BMW World Museum.
