Mein Auto: 1990 525i

Its been awhile, but i finally got my vehicle fixed a couple days ago. After diagnosing the problem, ordering the part from BMW, them ordering the wrong one and having to reorder the correct one i finally got it in and replaced it. Turns out my shifter cable had snapped. Since the last time ive posted ive done the following.

Replaced valve cover gaskets, exhaust manifold gasket, ignition coil, wires, shifter cable and i painted my heads for fun. Its driving a ton better now, so next will be little things to make it more personal to me.

Before (but after being heavily cleaned)

After and mostly installed:
