Wow! Thanks for the speedy advice!
Torque, thanks ofr the link, I'll definitely check them out
Hoppy's535i, thanks for the insight. I basically want this car to serve as my daily driver. I don't need to win any competitions but would love to have a car that drives/performs well and feels/looks good. I love the 5 series and would be content with a good paint job, clean lines/trim, and a general 'like new' feel to it.
'89 635 csi suggested I do the work on my own. I would love to be able to but I am NOT mechanically inclined and live in an apartment so I have no garage, no tools, etc. That's my main problem since I will have to rely on someone elses labor/expertise
The engine feels very sluggish and it may need a tune-up as it hasn't been driven in a while. I'm afriad to take it to the dealer because of their often exessive fees. A rebuild would give me the power and performance I'm looking for.
Again, thanks guys...I'm really lost and you are giving me some great info!
