You can contact BMW (in Germany) and they should be able to help you out. I recently bought http://www.amazon.com/Art-BMW-Years-Motorcycling-Excellence/dp/0760333157 or http://search.barnesandnoble.com/The-Art-of-BMW/Peter-Gantriis/e/9780760333150#PRFand it tells the story of Peter Nettesheim that collects and rebuilds older BMW's just like you plan to do.

I was sampling some German movies and notice they are more liberal than there Hollywood counterparts?

European social structures and behavior are far more liberal than Hollywood's. I don't think in censorship. I think personal responsible behavior as being a required preventive to exactly what is wrong for a community to openly view as to exactly what is being seen within the privacy of a property. In a free of charge society, we can't enact laws morality. My differences might contrast with another person's rights to even produce liberal film scripts. My selection is I'll just not enjoy them. Or maybe I will certainly ...



Top quality and discounts for the old German Script

Nintendo wii consule (european german version)

Hi,

The Wii Sports manual can be downloaded here

The manual for the Wii console itself can be obtained here

As for changing the language in Wii Sports, I am not sure, but it usually gives you the option when the game first starts up, otherwise it might use the system language.

Thanks.
