: The car is a 1976 530i. 4 speed manual. Bought for $1000 from a Spanish thespian living two blocks from my buddy. Ok, so the car's got the usual problems or shall we say "characteristics" that a car like this should. One thing is that his door locks don't work. This actually bothers me more than it does him, but I digress. I haven't played with so I can't comment on any sounds coming from the locking motors in the doors or whatever. I'll get the specifics from him but do you all have any ideas? The sunroof works fine, pretty much every interior light is intermitent/in-operable.
: Along with that, does anyone know or have a source for the technical information about this car? I am talking: what engine, what were the specs of that engine, what tranny, performance numbers, etc. TIA
: The pissed off buddy who tries to be happy for John(the guy with the 530i) even though John doesn't deserve this car. Hey, just had a thought, maybe I could buy it from him... wow, you guys are brilliant!
