Greetings. New member here but not to BMW's. I am looking forward to much time spent here with the BMW CCA. After much deliberation about what to do with this oil stink we are in just now, I decided that transportation was the one major expense I had some control over. I really love my highly modified '05 Tacoma and don't want it to go away. So I chose an older car I am familiar with and bought it this past week. Anywho - here she is: 1987 BMW 325is with 185K miles on the clock. I paid about $1800 for her as she sat: heavily oxidized, square tires, and a cracked up windshield. After a days work, a new windshield, new shift boot and knob, new shoes, new badges on the hood and trunk, and more elbow grease - she came out pretty nice. About $600 worth of stuff on top of the purchase price. The on board computer tells me I am getting around 28 MPG and it is a kick in the pants to drive. After I mature a little behind the wheel, I bet it gets closer to 30. Perhaps.... She just passed a professional inspections with flying colors, so next is a set of truly round wheels to replace the nearly rounds I have now. Then it will be springs and shocks - most likely the BavAuto Sport Kit as I will enjoy some spirited driving and an autocross or two as well.
