Just picked up a 1994 740il 140K miles- beautiful machine! Well kept.

Vehicle sat for many years so it now needs some TLC maintenance/service to bring it back to mint condition.

My budget mandates that I do the work myself.

I will be doing most/all repairs maintenance/service myself.
I plan on purchasing the service manual(s) ASAP.

Immediate problems/service:

Engine temperature back light bulb in the dash is out.
The mini flashlight in the glove box is not working.

Needs 4 new tires
Front left shock is knocking when driving. Replace front shocks.

Climate control seems to only be blowing hot air.
Air conditioner is not working- needs service
Ambient temperature reading as displayed on computer is erratic and incorrect.

Biggest problem is knocking from the front wheel well (shocks?) and climate control.

Looking forward to bringing this car to life…..
