Classic BMW owners will now be able to get their hands on OE parts straight from the German automaker, thanks to a new website that recently went online.
The new online store is dedicated to classic models from 1960 to 1990 and covers both vehicles and motorcycles manufactured from Bavaria.
The site is currently available only to customers in Germany, but BMW is looking to expand the Classic Parts website’s services to other European markets in April. The store presently has over 35,000 products but BMW did mention that certain parts that are overweight, oversized, dangerous to ship, and electric components are not available.

BMW will use the sale to promote its racing heritage and raise the profile of the brand. BMW also plans to auction other vehicles in the future. Bonhams has previously auctioned large collections of BMW motorcycles.
