Update: Gas tank replaced as of 4/10 E38 basketweaves w/ 205/50/16 tires as of 5/10 Tune up done with water pump, timing belt and pulley as of 4/09 Transmission shift cable as of 7/10 All coolant and heater hoses replaced as of 4/09 Cat-back exhaust as of 6/10 My E28 has been sitting in my garage for a while now. I last started her about 2 weeks ago so tonight I am going through a list to make it road worthy. First off I am pricing parts I need: Full tune up-wires, cap/rotor, plugs, filters, belts, 02 sensor, etc... Coolant-all hoses, water pump, thermo Timing belt & pulley Radiator was changed back in 1999 but only 20K miles have been driven since. Think I should still change it? Fan clutch was changed back in 97 when I had 135K miles. She currently has 225K. I haven't tried the fan clutch test yet. Gas tank will have to be on hold for now. I will just have it 1/2 tank or less . I cannot neglect this car any longer. She is still a beauty and she deserves to be out on the road. On Craigslist there is a 87 535i 5-speed for $500/no title. However, its about 2 hours from me. It is black/black with a clean body/interior (from the pics). I could swap out the dash and the sport steering wheel and other interior parts from it over to my E28 and maybe down the line time swap in the 5-speed and maybe the M30 engine as well . The owner is willing to deliver locally but I doubt 2 hours away. If I were serious to get it I would have to rent a truck with a dolly but with miles and insurance it would probably be more than the price of the 535! The owner says in the ad that the car runs fine. Yup, I though about driving it up to my house from LI but if I get caught by a police officer, than I am screwed!
