    Hi there,
    I'm Diogo from Leiria, Portugal, I'm 22 years old and I've just bought a non runner E12 520 with all the mechanic parts of the E12 528i for a nice price and I'm willing to make it a nice winter car as in the summer I just prefer to use the Yamaha XTZ 750

    The body and paintwork are in mint condition, the interior is quite nice but I would prefer the leather interior...

    Anyways it is my first BMW and i hope that the problem in the engine doesn't set me up real expensive parts

    Can you direct me to the threads or articles that talk about troubleshooting in these engines?

    I hope I can learn a lot from you
    Cheers, Diogo

    Sweet car mate. Bet it goes well with the 2,8 lump, much better than the old 2 litre....

    Excellent car.....
