    Hello, I'm new into the car world so I decided to buy an automatic 2000 BMW 528i with 200,000 miles as a cheap project to mess around with, I would later realize that wasn't a great idea.

    So, I'm new... I have a 1982 BMW 518i that I intend to restore to full daily-driver condition- But, given the uniqueness of the car, I've had a tricky time with it.
