Just sending a shout out and thanks for all the helpful insight I have been eating up the last couple weeks.

I recently purchased my first BMW as a project car. Going to be restoring the interior (seats, carpets, headliner, panel linings, gear shift knob/boot) along with a new paint job and wheels (unless I can restore the current M3 rims that have aged a bit). Looking forward to the completion, but already really enjoying the drive!

After I bought it, test drove before buying for about 15 minutes locally and even interstate, I was half way home and the car completely shut down, dead battery... I started laughing. After having my wife follow me the last 20 miles home and jump started 4 times when the car battery died I realized it was most likely the alternator. So replacing the alternator was my 1st DIY project... pretty simple.

Anyways I plan to post pics along the journey. Thanks again for all those out there answering questions!
