Hi Geoff,
Thanks for the note. Looks like you appreciate the technology from Deutschland too.
This is the second BMW I have owned. The first one was a '79 733i with a cracked cylinder head.
I picked it up way back in the mid eighties from a soldier who brought it back from Germany. It was a "grey market" car and had a ton of power compared to the smog busters. It always ran perfectly after I rebuilt the engine and I hated to let it go but it was a show of good faith to the wife when we purchased some property. Selling the car helped me pay for the driveway, guh. Now she is my ex, the property has been sold and I definitely miss the car and the garage more then her.
Regards,
Peter
