Hello from NJ
Needed a hobby so I got a "field find" 1989 535I for the cost of towing it home. 349K miles and its up and running/liscensed and on the road in 2 days. Very impressed. Still needs alot of TLC and Im finding I own one of THOSE cars again (Drove a 1976 MG Midget for years...) where parts/info are hard to track down and when you fuind what your looking for its twice the cost you thought it would be but we'll see how it goes. If anyone can point me to a wiring digram for the radio, that would be 90% of the current battle. I pulled the radio with the Dealer and the Data plate for the serial # is missing so i gets to be upgraded to a doorstop. Cant find an adapter to hook up a JVC unit I have on the shelf and no one seems to have the wiring diagram. Guess Im tracing....
Anyway it seems to run good and handle well so hopefully it works out.
