I kind of gathered that some of the emissions are left off which I'm guessing makes them a little faster. I have no idea if a vin # would help or not, but i wrote it down the other day. I will post it when I get a chance. Where should I start looking for a lowering/suspension kit? What engine is in the 635 in the pic? 12 cyl.? Thanks once again for your help.
Ok First does the engine have a raised water jacket on the side of the block or a White L painted on the side(driverside)
The M90 isn't a ///M engne it was a rarer high torque engine.....
Yep that is a V12 from a 750iL
Ok what Heres a couple things to when you get the car
> Engine Oil and Filter
> Transmission Fluid And Filter
> Rear Diff. Fluid
> Power Steering Fluid
> Clean out Sunroof Drains(If you have one
> Full Detail on the car(Wash and wax, Vacuum and shampoo the interior)
> Plugs,Cap and Rotor
> Fuel Filter, Air Filter, and Powersteering filter
That is the #1 things to do!
Next things are to do :
> Front Bushings(if it shimmys)
> Springs and Shocks(Do Strut Hats too!)
> Rims(most still have the old TRX rims and tires cost $400+ each) and tires
And then what every else needs repair
The Euro's are more desireable Due to:
> Better looking Bumpers
> Less Emissions restrictions
Need anything let me know I'll be waiting for those pics.....
