I'm not classifying it as a BMW thing, it just the age and lack of maintenance. This car needs a new steering rack, new springs, new struts/shocks, new mounts, on an on. It's 25 years old now. I have had no problems in the past, it's just time. Other issues were no heat, does not like to start on cold days, does not like to start on hot days.. it's all maintenance and time. The plan is to restore it for the kids or Grandkids as soon as I can stop driving it. Winter tires I have, and all the other driving skills I hope I never forget. We all have plenty of reasons why we went for the compass, mine is mostly timing.
The last written report, I did not have the Vin number. I'm calling them now.
