Post subject: Noob Intro / 220 330Ci Convertible

Hi, I'm a noob here. Name is Marvin. I bought my first BMW about 4 years ago and just learned about this group. My car is a Blue 2002 330Ci Convertible. It was well maintained when I got it and I have learned a lot about it and do a lot of my own work on it. I live in Queen Creek. I racked up a few miles on it commuting the first couple years, but now I work out of my home office so only drive it here and there which makes it a lot more enjoyable.

I also have a Red 1985 535i that I bought last summer for a project. I was considering selling it recently / I just haven't had a lot of time to work on it.. But the thought of selling it made me sad. It runs pretty good and I think I'll keep it and just work on it when I have time/money.

Here's the E28. Honestly the pic's make it look pretty Fantastic but it needs a lot of work. Drives smooth though, all the electronics work, and I love the body style. It seems a little slow to start but once running the engine runs fine.

The interior is okay but rough. That's where it needs most of the work. Hard to explain but anything fabric is fallen apart, the leather seats have holes/cracks/tears. Dashboard is full of cracks.

Gary Peoples' old car. That car was a great deal.

Yes that's correct. Do you know Gary? Nice guy. I guess he had just acquired an M3 and wanted to put his money into that instead. I had been searching for an E28 for a while and when I saw the ad, I jumped on it.

Nice. Zinnoberrot, right? If mine still had any clear coat our cars would match. Mine is a '85 535i in Zinno also.

Its Zinno and it's not supposed to have clear coat.
