My first car (when I was 16) was BMW E21 320, then I had a number of E30s and E36s (last one sold in 2007). After all those years and mistaking with other car makes I have returned to the roots and treated myself with E31 840CiA - 1995 4988cc V8 110k miles automatic in bright red colour.

The car requires attention nearly everywhere (except of interior which is in very condition), so I will be here quite often - I will aim not only asking questions but also describing the process of solving the issues.

The plan is to bring the E31 to its as new shape!
