according to the carfax this thing started out life in OK and got auctioned
off to the place I bought it from here in Los Angeles. You guys must have mild winters
or the guy who put the first 50000k was an old lady.
I'm looking at shocks in a few as well as tires. I want to take out a bit of the Luxo ride but not get beat up on the crappy pavement they have let most of the roads turn into around here. The fast lanes on the freeways up against the cement walls with the bumps in the pavement is getting scary and needs tightening up a bit.
Had Bilstein-Boge-and KYB(ok for first 5000 mi then junk) on the old 85 318 and have to put my money on the Bilsteins even though I had them rebuilt under warranty every 30,000. Any suggestions? Don't/can't go lower- the shopping center entrances and dips in roads is about at the limit without eating lots of lower lips on the spoiler. Tires- I have always favored Pirelli and will probably get what is ever mid price. I'm not a big tire and wheel guy- They always look like shit if you drive on them and you can't see them when they are spinning unless somebody stole your car and you see them driving away. Besides, anyone who would have a spare that only fits one end (bigger rear tires) is kind of asking for a long wait for a tow
