-cough- I'll get to it eventually. Right now, I need...
1) Clutch disc
2) Shifter kit
3) Radiator fan (just the blade deal itself)
4) E-Brake reconnected
5) fix ratiator's leak
6) re-install rear left door panel
7) spark plugs
8) thermostat (aftermarket and stock)
9) climate control
10) WIIIRINGGG.
11) speedometer fixed


and a lottt of other stuff that I can't remember. I don't know if I can fit a heat shield...pics? I'll scoop or tweak to cold intake eventually. I bought it with this intake this way.
(Cookie if you can identify what that is that's over my filter)

Mein Auto: 1991 325 IC Euro
Here is my 1991 325ic, waddya think?

So here it is. I've had it for over about two years now, but it has been mainly garaged as I travel a lot for work. I'm currently doing ongoing restorations. I'll be replacing the soft top, and getting it painted in about a month or so. In addition I'm about to have the trasmission and engine pulled, resealed cleaned, and painted and polished.

Also who has any good leads on what performance chips I can put in this thing? And where abouts may I find a reliable distrubutor for performance chips.
