Mein Auto: 1990 525i
So just an update. My first impressions are great. Love the quality of the vehicle, am amazed at the features it has for a 1990 model, and only have a few things I need to fix. The latch for the glove compartment needs replacing. The paneldor the sunroof needs to be replaced( where the buttons are). It may have a fuel problem, as sometimes it won't start the first time I try. Perhaps fuel pump? Also, sometimes when I'm slowing down (braking or just coasting) I feel a very slight jerk. Makes me think downshifting isn't proper but that's a pure guess. Overall, very glad I bought it and can't wait to start fixing things and making it even better. I'll take some pictures and post them tomorrow.
