Hello,
Caveat: I'm a blockhead when it comes to cars...I love my beemer, but don't know didley about it.

Now, I was just wondering where I oculd go to learn as much as I can about the older 5 series beemers (mine is 1988 528e). I would love to take a hands on course...does anyone have any recommendations for videos, classes, etc?

Thanks!!

im in the same boat as you. My plan is whenever I have a problem with my car I will go work on it WITH my mechanic. I will pay him the same price and everything just he has to let me help him work on it. I have a pretty good relationship with him so I am sure he would be happy to.

Thats a great idea...unfortunately, I have not found a BMW mechanic in my area and have taken the car to the auto care chains like Pepboys.
