I just scored a 325i at a very awesome price (double digits). Its from a friend, the only catch is, it does not run, and they dont exactly know what theyre doing. But I am told it was "Something about the compression being low" so the first thing that popped into my head was BHG, and i could hope for it. Originally I was told it was an oil leak, which would be much more of a hassle for me than a BHG.
Any way I bought the car, the price was just too right. Where should I start working on this car, how would i start?
Should I pump the gas tank (its been sitting around for awhile and im pretty sure gas goes bad)
Should I try to start it and see what happens? Ive looked up prices on a new head gasket, and I am not impressed, the head gasket looked like paper for $100, I used to be into Supra performance (mk2) and I loved the Metal Head Gasket, does such a thing exist for a BMW. Actually, scratch that, the other one will work fine, I just need to get this thing running.
Any tips would be nice.
