2016: A Year in Review

2016 was a year of challenges and growth for Total Motor Werkes. To prepare for the new year, the Total Motor Werkes team wanted to share our highlights of 2016 with you.

Tail of the Dragon & Vintage 2016

Once again the Total Motor Werkes team traveled to Asheville, North Carolina to attend the Vintage BMW classic car gathering, hitting up the famous Tail of the Dragon on the way.

September & October Lapping Events

As always, the Total Motor Werkes team attended several lapping events this year at Mosport DDT. The team drove Klaus the E28 535i, Mr. Z the E34 525i wagon, and Lando the E36 “318i”.

You can find more lapping pictures here.


Our highlights out of the shop wouldn’t be possible without our accomplishments in the shop, and we both completed and started several exciting projects in 2016.

S54-Swapped E36 Track Car

We completed swapping an S54 into a track-ready E36 this year. Keep an eye out for this car tearing up the tarmac in 2017.


The M2 is an ongoing evolving project, requiring constant innovation, creativity, and fabrication technique.

E21 Track Car

The Total Motor Werkes team is also building a shop E21, stay tuned to see what motor we’ll be putting in this car!


By remaining honest and fair, every employee at Total Motor Werkes takes pride in their work. We strive for meticulousness and perfection with each and every vehicle that comes through the shop doors. Our priority always will be our customers, and providing the highest quality work in everything that we do. For at Total Motor Werkes, we accept nothing short of the best.

We’d like to thank all of our clients for making 2016 such a great year, and we’re looking forward to 2017.

Although we post a selection of our best photos on our website, full albums of all of our vehicles as well as daily updates are available on our Facebook page.
