View Full Version : F.S 83 e21

09-16-2005, 12:49 PM
Well my last thread got magically deleted so ill post it up again. It's an 83 e21. Running mint. I just took it to my mechaninc who specializes in old bimmers at the beginning on summer and he replace/ fixed/ preformed:

-compression check
-complete engine got looked over to source the problem of why it wouldn't start. Mechanic said it was all perfect just that P.O had played with the fuel mixture and messed it up and a few small other problems that were fixed.
-valve adjustment
-new brakes all around
-new ebrake
-timing chain cover gasket
-new fuel lines that run from the fuel accumulator to the filter and another new hard line somewhere in the mix.
-new factory fuel filter
-mobil 15w50 oil changes with bmw factory filter
-new bosch silber plugs
-bosch wires
-bosch cap and rotor
-also have adjustable strut tower brace.

Problems with the car
-Paint has seen better days. Mostly the clear coat is peeling off but the paint is bad in some spots.
-driver/ passenger side fenders have rust spots around the wheel well. Surprisingly car is pretty rust free for the age.
-It runs a little ruff until the temp needle moves a mm and than runs mint. Haven't got back to the mechanic to see why.
-interior has seen better days. Just needs some factory recaros ;)

I probably left something out so if I remember ill post it. Im looking to get around $1500 for the car to try to get back half off the money I put into it. Like I said the car runs mint with the exception off the 1 minutes warm up period. Thanks
