Just taken delivery of a '91 730SEi with 137k.
- I've got no owners manual, don't need a service manual but need to know how things work (computer, heater buttons etc). Is a web copy available?
- I'm not sure if this model has an alarm/immobiliser?
- Should it have remote central locking (I only have std door keys).
- Is the rear screen heater the radio arial as the reception is extremely poor.
- The service book has a different engine no than the registration doc. I assume a racement has been fitted. Are there any obvious signs to tell?
- The car has some slight steering shake at certain speeds (could just be wheel balancing) and occasional shake under braking. Is this likely to be the front bushes?

Sorry don`t know the answers to your first few questions, but as for the last one i`d bet if you replace the front discs and pads your problem will be solved..
good luck and i hope you enjoy your "new toy" as much as i enjoy mine.( 87 730ise.).
