    Brought my car home. My 1989 325 has been sitting at my dads house for the past 3 years. We will see what 2018 brings to the table....

      Changed fuel filter, replaced my antenna grommet and took a lousy picture at the BMW dealership nearby on my test drive

        Got my uncles 316i Baur in the workshop today.
        He bought this E30 a while back and only drove it to the inspection center to get it registered. The previous owner changed the waterpump and timing belt just before my uncle bought it. 51k original kms (31k miles).

        I had to change some random interior bits that were broken. Handbrake handle had some marks in them from a dog chewing on it, the passenger door handle had a broken hinge point. Just small stuff. When replacing the handle though, I noticed some kind of marking on the inside of the door in the paint. Anyone that has seen something like this before? The plastic foil on the inside was still original and as far as I can tell I'm the first one to ever remove it.


        I also changed the oil and filter. Turns out the last time the filter got changed was in somewhere in '96. I decided to remove the valve cover to inspect the valve train for deposits but it was still pretty clean in there.



        The inside of the valve cover had some deposits on it but nothing bad.


        Also took this picture of his Baur and my iX Touring :)

          Pulled my E30 out of the trailer, over winter storage, found a huge puddle(?) of oil under the car. Checked my engine oil and its fine, checked my transmission oil and its half missing... Haven't checked into it yet but will tomorrow. Also it is over due for a transmission fluid change.

              Finally got around to flushing my brake fluid, which looked like diesel oil lol. Flushing the fluid weirdly fixed two problems that recently popped up.

              My batt would come on when I started the car and would stay on until I revved it up to ~1000 rpm. When I first saw this I tested the alt and it would charge at ~14v while the light was on. Also, my brake fluid light would intermittently come on. After the flush, neither have come back on...

                              Agreed - going to drive it for a bit to let the suspension settle and decide if I want to raise the rear very slightly or leave it as is.

                              Also going to depend on what my new wheel / tire combo will be.

                                Completed cooling system overhaul started a few weeks ago. Flushed system, drained, and installed new radiator, water pump, all hoses, fan clutch. While I was in there, I changed the timing belt, v-belts, plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor.

                                Tomorrow I will flush out any remaining dirty water, fill up with coolant, purge any air, and go for a ride. Fingers crossed it will start.

                                Up next, MMO, an oil change shortly thereafter, and a new oil level sender unit.
