I'm fairly new to BMW's, picked up mint 525e "87car for fairly cheap.
Now I have pretty much no idea what I can/can't should/shouldn't do to it.
As I live in the middle of nowhere in Outback Aus, there's few people who know either.
Sorry about my knowledge, or lack of.
At this point, I'm going to leave the engine stock, not much worth doing in my opinion.
For starters i was planning on redoing the exhaust (Currently got a hole and its fallen a bit), Going for a flat muffler etc.
Also, changing to some different wheels. I've been told that getting 16s (from the current 14s) would change up the suspension, shockers, ride significantly. I'm having trouble thinking this is correct. If i stay with the same overall size, I thought it would only harden the ride a bit.
So my questions are:
New Exhaust good idea?
Getting bigger wheels a bad?
Anything else I should know?
