Mein Auto: 323i E30 2-door
Quick update

I only managed to get the clutch rebuilt in January
After installing that & solving some other mysteries I finally managed to get the car on the Dyno yesterday. It ran rich with the typical lean spot around 4000 Rpm. That is easy to fix
Today I sent it off to wheel alignment & to see what my guys might have hurt when attacking the pavement
The parts I ordered with FEBI in the first December days ????
The order I placed with my BMW agent at the same time got lost, as the salesman was dismissed
There are many positive aspects to living here, but this is not one of them.

When the car gets back I want to drive it for a few days to see what is still wrong
I am stumped in how to fix the passenger seat backrest unit It is a 2-door, so I need it to work 100 %.
Then to do a tune-up with cam-belt replacement & whatever else I can find on the engine (management) side...
Then it is back on the Dyno for tuning
Don't take life too seriously; no one gets out alive !
