What up guys! Im JR.
Im new to bimmers, just purchased a 97 BMW 528i oxford green with 133k on it. It's lowered on H&R springs and Staggs shocks. Today I gave it an oil change, spark plugs, pads and rotors. My goal is to bring it up to date on all maintenance and have it run close to what it did in 1997.

Welcome to the Werkz.

Dont forget the air filter, coolant change (if needed), brake fluid flush and change, gearbox and diff oil (and filter if an auto) change. Mightnt hurt to give the Air Flow Sensor a bit of a clean up as well.

Enjoy your time here.


Riding in style

Welcome to Bimmerwerkz!

The coolant system in te M52 engine was notorious for failing. The plastic components became brittle and would crack causing overheating. Replacing your thermostat housing, water pump, and coolant expansion tank/radiator with upgraded aluminum ones prevents any issues. The M52 is also very fragile when it comes to overheating. They can blow the headgasket very easily if te car overheats. If you ever see the temp gauge climbing quickly pull over and shut the car off before any major damage.
