I'm changing my spark plugs and all the vacuum lines that look bad and vacuum control valve(electric) to see if I'll pass for the third test.

And my gas cap failed this time... Weird.

1st test


2nd test

I remember when I was around 6 my dad had a car phone in his truck. That thing could get a single anywhere and it always sounded like a land line. It is a shame the satellite phone companies had that old style kill just because they were almost as good as a satellite phone at a fraction of the cost.

Yup. The '85 635CSi. The phone still lights up, but of course it won't work on the current cell system. I keep it just for the nostalgia factor.

Cali seems to be the center of the BMW wheel universe. When I was looking for my style 5s the large majority I found that were worthwhile were in Cali.
