Post subject: I've got the sickness

The Kohler sickness that is.

I couldnt resist. Picked this up today.



Its daily drivable in my opinion but she needs bit of work. You were right Kohler the shimmy was a bit more pronounced with the wider tires.

As it sits now.

It's red and it has a radio.

Nicely purchased! This will be a fun project.

Its faded Zinnoberrot/perlbeige. almost at 300,000 miles. Power everything.

Its a 1985 535i. E31 Style 8's with autocross tires. Coolant temp gauge, cruise control, and "flash-to-pass" function, dont work. Engine pulls strong, and the clutch pedal feels real tight with minimal dis-engagement travel. I like it.

I really hope Gabe turns a bunch of tags into red rags buffing the paint on this as it will look phenomenal when it is buffed out. Just not so much right now.

Well as per Chris' above post, i finally got it detailed. The guy that washes all our customers cars has a mobile detailing business and he came out this morning. It looks phenomenal, pictures dont do it justice.

reference above photos for comparison.

Thanks guys but the credit goes to Daniel.

The fender has been like that since last May.

Expanding foam in that fender should fix it!
