E23 1985 745i NOOB

Hello, I just recently got an 85 745i, one of my favorite cars of all times. I will post some picks soon, but is there anyone else on here with this kind of car?

I dont have a pic of mine yet, right now I am putting a new turbo in it...Oh yeah. The 745i is a grey market import from germany, they started making them in 79 to 86. It is like the 733i and the 735i that were imported to the US, but it came with a 3.5 liter turbo motor - stock. it also has a 2.95 rear end on it making its top cruse speed at 140mph. Water buffalo hide interior and walnut grain wood, heated and power front and rear seats. I think they are one of the best looking BMWs out there.

Good timing on your post. I just started looking today for a front exhaust section for an '84 733i. If anyone has any ideas, I'd greatly appreciate it!
