You are pulling all these dodgy bits off the E28....then Gordon turns up with his car and all these new bits....and then Gordon goes and makes lunch and shadow lines your car while you fit all Gordons stuff to the E28...oops...I mean fit all Gordons stuff to your E34...oops...I mean fit all Gordons stuff to Gordons car.


My mistake: I will remove all the parts from the E28 during the week and I will install them on saturday to clean the Garage for Gordon's car on Sunday.

I thought you were fixing Gordons car on Sunday. Those accumulator spheres are a PITA on the E28's


The vacuum wasn't hard enough for the brake booster, so they use a weird system:
- On the 533 and 535i a hydraulic brake booster supplied with hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump assists the braking effort...
They use an hydraulic accumulator that fails as often as the E28 bushings...

But I am learning... and I will replace the accumulator and the front end components Sunday.
