And each one was painstakingly straightened in the press and with a hammer an oak block...

Driving Impressions - Daily Driver 525i:

Ok,

So I've been driving this car for the past 3 days, roughly 110 miles a day and I have to say it has really impressed me. Aside from a lot of missing interior trim and the lack of a heater (due to the stolen pump assembly) the car runs great, has good power and seems to be getting really great mileage too. The 4L30E has to be one of the best, most crisp stock automatic transmissions that I have experienced in an older car.

Now just need to find all the missing parts....

Burt, just do it! You will get at least half back from
The old ones or have spares!

Your paint is so clean this would set it off and mean really pop, and with bimmerfest comming.. A great way to stand out..
