I am looking at buying a '93 525i with 75k miles on it from a friend. The car has never had any problems, but will probably need a new muffler, rear brakes, and the clutch now grabs very high in its travel. I figure the muffler and brakes should cost less than $700 total. Do these clutches need to be adjusted, or do you think I will need a new clutch?
Two aftermarket items will probably be added, wheels and a cd changer. The car has the 20 spoke wheels, I think I'll keep them for the snow tires and get new wheels. A couple questions here -- if I go to 16" wheels, and would like to keep the tire size under 225, what size would I need? Also, does anyone make a replica of the cross spoke (BBS) wheels from the 535i? Lastly, is the stock stereo pre-wired for a trunk mounted cd changer?
Thanks in advance for answers to any/all questions.
