    Air dam? :)

    Glad you are getting it going. I am still waiting on the M5 rehab.

    How are you doing my brother from another mother? Speaking of the euro bumpers I might stop by that junk yard this Saturday to take pics and to see if they can remove them for me. BTW I might keep them to put them on the 2nd e28 but if I decide I don't want them (front and rear) you will be first in line.

    Pics of M5 or it doesn't exist :)

    I have euro bumpers now. Just in need of a Zender air dam (and like the post above says I have that BBS air dam for trade.)

    M5 pic from our 26" snow storm back in December (in Virginia!) Now it is going to snow a ton tomorrow again. :mad:

    We are only expected to get flurries here in upstate NY :). Good luck with the snow. What does the M5 need to be back on the road?

    I personally don't see why you need me to install seats. I mean come on, how hard can it be??? E39 seats were easy squeezie as well!

    Your right, I can do this by myself. If anything Kamal will point me in the right direction.

    +1. Come to think of it, I recall some blowhard claiming he put a S50 in a 1987 325e a couple of months ago. Must have been fiction.

    Well for one, I have to fix that. Also have to install brakes, springs and struts, intake, etc. I am getting it ready to go to Vintage at the Vineyards.

    Paul you really should know better than to smoke in your car! LOL :D

    Sorry about all the snow. We must have sent it south this year. It has been very cold here in Central Penna, but almost no snow.

    I bought the car in that condition. The cat had caught fire. I have pretty much everything I need to fix it, though.

    I hope you get her ready for the spring. I can't wait until I install my sport seats in the e28. In another two weeks I will finally get new tires and wheels too.

    That't the plan. Vintage at the Vineyards is at the end of May.

    No Chris, he really meant Vintage at the Vineyards. I seriously doubt he's going to drive all the way to northern NY for Vintage at Saratoga!

    Paul, you bought a car that blew up? You really are a special breed... :D

    My neighborhood is fine as wine. My father borrowed the car and it happened at his job.

    E34 basketweaves. I won a set on eBay so they should arrive soon.
