    Swap for a “better” automatic?

    I fitted a 4hp22 from an E30 with I think a converter and bell housing from a 518i into my 2002 manual as at that time I was using it for my daily commute to work, worked great, very low rpm at 80 mph, the 4hp22 has an overdrive top gear, I also fitted one into an E9 CSA for a customer, I would...

    Front fender / wing needs, or part of...

    The accident damage is repairable, but any rust through or poor previous repairs are another issue, whilst repairable may not be worth it if rusty, has anyone spoken to BMW lately about future availability? surely they did not scrap the press tools? maybe they thought they had enough to see...

    The antenna screws on from the outside, same as my 2002 Touring, the cylinder head seems to have a 1982 date, very nice car, BMW only designed those bumpers because they were forced to, we never had then in the UK although we did get the E24 big bumpers on the highline,

    Oil leak from timing chain tensioner

    carefully and slowly wipe with a white kitchen roll, checking as you go as that will will show a thin film of oil that you may not be able to see, works for fuel as well, when the paper stays clean you have gone past the leak, my money is on the lower front cover just behind the chain...

    Oil leak from timing chain tensioner

    with this type of oil leak you must look for the highest and most forward sign of oil as it will always go down and back, it could be a bad copper seal ring on the tensioner or loose tensioner, it could be the gasket between the front cover and engine block, quite common, or from the front of...
