    Hi all

    Just thought as id posted a few questions in the 7 series section id better introduce myself formally on here

    Im Toad, from Stoke....Support the mighty Potters

    This is my motor and my 1st BMW, but not my firts foray into german rear wheel driven vehicles (Couple of Merc E classes and several VW beetles and campers)

    Anyway....I love this motor its a 735 E32 1990 model...oh and its on a manual box with a rebuilt LSD , grey leather in great cond, just needs a feed and buff.

    Mods are lowered all round, 17" rims and low profiles. Clear front and side repeaters and alternative rear lenses

    Had a lot of problems so far with fuse and bulb probs, heater blower/fan doesnt....er.....blow, massive fuel leak from the tank if i put more than 23 quid in, drivers door dont lock, need to put air con belt back on and get it all regassed ......so i got a lot to keep me busy (have sorted the parts so just got to pick em up and fit em).

    Engine and fuelling started to play up on thursday and was a mare yesterday, but its going in for diagnostics on tuesday.

    What you think?

    fankers guys

    well after the running got so bad that i was getting 8mpg on friday, it went in for diagnosis

    while the exhaust is blowing a bit, the fuel pressure regulator was the culprit.

    so its been replaced with genuine parts and runs sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet now

    im back on the road

    just got the fan and the fuel tank to sort now
