Hey...

I am looking at buying an 84 318i with pretty high miles (225,000) but the body looks to be in good condition. However, it is in need of a new rad and back brake lines(steel ones). Has anyone ever tackled the job of doing the brake lines and if so, was it very difficult? Also, I am looking for a place around St. Catherines or Niagara Falls that sells BMW parts for a relatively reasonable price??? If anyone can help me out that would be great...

Thanks

the rear lines is a minor job....as long as it still feels strong and the price is good...go for it..probably the most reliable e30 ever made....

And soon you will find out how feasable turboing an M10 is, along with some other stuff :D

You might want to go for the teflon coated braided steel lines.
