In Reply to: New 735i owner requesting help posted by dj on December 24, 1999 at 00:58:21:
: I just bought a 1985 735i, and there a couple of things I was hoping you experienced guys might address.
: First, the defrost vents are always open and there appears to be nothing I can do to close them. After the car has warmed up, the air is blazingly hot; and the faster I drive, the more powerful it blows.
: Second, the car seems to get a bit warm when I am idling at stoplights. Then, when I get a bit of speed, it drops back to the center position. I feel like I have to keep moving, so it feels like some strange rendition of the movie Speed.
: Other than those relatively minor items, it's a great car with a smooth ride. Thanks in advance for your help!
Welcome to the club, I recently bought an 85 735i one owner brought over from Germany, it has 156K. I have a few glitches to deal with but I love the model. I like older cars and this one is a keeper. Let me know how you resolve your problem.
