sound good matey, any pics?

I have the same fault with the electric windows only working with the door open when the ignitions off, so I'm guessing it's a common problem.

You experience any problems with your clutch slipping after a lot of use? (i.e. stopping and starting)

Good motors these you'll prob see 350.000 miles before you start getting any engine probs matey.

My mate had a 7-40 with a gas conversion and that was verynice.

At the moment he has a E26 328i sport and a E26 M3 evo.

You'll have to get yourself over here for a meet.

pics of hi old motor

Embrace the massiveness of those pics,car looks great mate. Still got a lot of class even tho its old. not sure about the steering wheel, but what it lacks in class it makes up for with its size
