E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

temp gauge trouble

My temp gauge is going completely crazy. As i drive the pin bounces around like crazy. but then when i come to a complete stop, the pin stops to the left. Any ideas as to what could be going on?

Bad connection somewhere, temperature sending unit, bad SI boards cause weird problems too.

Yup. Its the connection behind the gauge. Its a common problem mentioned here before. Remove the gauges and tighten the screws behind the temp gauge.
