I just recently bought an '82 320i for restoration. We had it running..briefly. Now when we turn the key there is nothing except a click in the fuse panel on the right fender wall. Any suggestions?

Congratulations on the 320i. Please post Fotos soon.

Regarding the problem, is the battery ok? That would be my first thought.

hello I have had that problem with my 83 320i and it happend when I was about 75 miles from home and all I had to do was tap on the starter with a hammer handle a couple of times and it started when I got home I put in a new starter and have not had a problem since.
