New E21 owner



Hello all! Just joined this forum as I recently purchased a 1977 320i. I posted a picture album with a few pictures of my new old E21...which looks pretty new. Not sure how to link my album to this thread...so I added the pictures individually

Great! Do you know a good place to go for service/parts? Oshawa first, then Durham region. Please and thank you!

unfortunately not many indy shops will bother to do service on vehicles like this (too old for them). I suggest you pick up a good service manual and some tools and go on FB group or bimmerforums e21 section and they will help with any problems you may encounter with your car. As for parts, check RealOEM to have a general idea of parts costs and availablity, then go to your nearest bmw dealer (endras in durham?) and buy them there, or ebay for used and sometimes new parts. Good luck and enjoy that e21!

some immediate things to look at are the following:

vacuum lines
cold start valve
upgrade that ignition to msd
tune that the mechanical fuel injection system.

Plan A is to make sure it is road worthy, plan B is to make sure it is to my standard (i.e. no leaks, tight steering/suspension), plan C is to address any body issues (i.e rust), plan D...I'm open to suggestion
