So the wife got a VW Beetle Convertible not to long ago so now the Bimmer is mine. YAY! Really though this is my first encounters with these German things lol. I'm Glad to say when it was given to us for Christmas i was given a service manual from the Bentley company. Very Useful!

I didn't know if i wanted to keep it or not, but finally decided to say ill just fix it up cause its almost a classic. Come on Why not Right lol.

So I started out with what i thought needs to be done now.

Toady i replaced the spark plugs. Don't know how long its been but boy where they bad.
As i was replacing them you wouldn't believe what i found. Wait. What? You guessed it. Oil in the spark plug well. So what does that mean oh no valve cover gasket. So i disassembled everything and cleaned the valve cover inside and out. Next on the agenda down the road paint that ugly thing.

Will post pics of my e34 Soon. Gotta get ready to go finish up on the valve gasket.

PS. Have already had the Cooling System Replaced. Found out thats a weak point in these cars the hard way. Thank God when it happend it was right next to the Shop So no Damage done.

Alot More to be done to this toy. Time will only tell how it will turn out.

Also, Please post on ideas to help move me along. I love to hear feedback and ideas to get the creative flow rolling.
