thanks; i went and read through the stickys last night... which would have given me the answers i was looking for! i managed to get a new battery in today; nice to be able to start her up without popping the hood, stretching the cables, etc etc...

read the owner's manual as well; BMW don't really put much info in there... luckily the PO kept the entire packet and the radio code was present. have to crank it full volume to get any sound.... probably dead woofers, as the only sound was coming from up front.

she behaved very well today; no hunting for idle, no runaway when shifting into park... i'll try a stomp test Sunday when i have time to interpret the results. i like the fuel minder feature; amazing how often it indicates 30+ mpg (good vacuum; indicates good valves).

now, to get the windows working... i'm betting on dirty switches...
