So I am in the process of starting to work on my '90 (made before 8/90) 525i that i just got recently and i would like some tips from you who already may have done any of this in the past. It would be soooo helpful!! THanks!!
I am looking at working on these following areas:
sport suspension (any tips where i could buy it and what kind is good, and also within a decent price range.?. i am not LOADED, otherwise i would have bought an M5!!
replacing the stereo - i heard its really hard to do, since there are no straight-up adaptors for this car... is it just a guessing-playwiththewires-till-i-get-it-right game??
Engine - now this is a big decision for me.. Some friends recomment to rebuild it, and others are saying to swap it.. Its the M20 with 211k miles!!! It still runs ok, but it needs help.. I am positive that it lost a LOT of compression over the miles and years.. I thought about swapping it for an M50, but was not recommended to do so by an import car shop.. Since I would have to replace everything else thats hooked up to it, and it may not fit correctly.. What to do???
These are my main concerns right now..I have already done some work as far as bushings go and some other things.. So ANY comments or tips would be VERY HELPFUL!!! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH AHEAD OF TIME!!
