Well, I finally talked my g/fs uncle into selling me his 1986 528E BMW.. Now I'm stuck w/ the fact of, I know absolutely nothing about these cars. I'm more of an Olds kinda guy myself.. I'm not looking for speed with this car, as I'm a small block kinda guy.. But I wouldn't mind havin somethin cool to look at. So my first couple of questions are.. Can I buy a set of newer BMW rims for this thing? Something around the 92ish year? Anything I should know before I buy a set of rims for it.. Is there some weird BMW thing where some won't fit? I know, stupid question.. But I don't wanna buy somethin and it be a waste.. My next is lowering the car. I've never been interested in lowering a car before, so I'm not exactly sure how this is done. Do I just buy a set of lowering springs for it? Or do I need to replace the shocks too? How much am I looking at this costing? Honestly, I don't mind going as cheap as possible and dealing w/ a rough ride. I probably won't end up keeping the car for too long, maybe just a span of a year to 2. I've heard of people heating the springs to lower a car and Ive heard of cutting them.. Is this even an option? If it is, what're the sacrifices.. And in that case, do the shocks need to be changed? Please excuse my lack of knowledge here.. No flames, just help me out.. My next questions are on interior.. I'd like to find a set of leather seats for it.. Do they need to come out of a 528E? Or will a diff. year or model bolt right in? I know this will seem so stupid to all you die hards, but I gotta start somewhere.. And I can't find anything online. I've searched AOLs search engine and Yahoo.. But I have more questions now then when I started. Please help.
