    The Official Bimmerforums 5er registry!

    OK, in an attempt to get to know all of you, I think it would be fun to have a little registry here where everyone can post the details and pics of your cars. Please include as much information as you want, but it would be great to at least know

    1) Model Year,
    2) Model Number (528iT....),
    3) Design generation (E21, E34....)
    4) Color (official, if known)
    5) Major options
    6) Modifications
    7) Use: beater, track car, show car....,
    8) Awards or Accomplishments
    9) Ownership history, when did you buy it, etc....

    Thanks. Check out http://www.tech-nick.net/bmw540/

    out of curiosity, why the auto?
    Last year I had knee surgery on my left leg (blew out my ACL and tore the meniscus). Driving a stick (my previous M3) wasn't the best thing, so I decided to switch to an automatic tranny. Recently though, my knee has been feeling great, and I sorta wish I'd gotten the 6-speed now. But I do enjoy the automatic. Maybe I'm just getting old

    Yes, and I'm very close to getting it. But I don't think the full throttle shift points and rev limiter need to be any higher on this engine (they're at the stock points right now with the current SW).

    Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by hundreds of engineers that get paid thousands of dollars for something you bought at Pep Boys because your buddy who doesn't have a job told you it was 'better'?!?

    '88 BMW 535i
    Hello : , My name is Scott and I have lurked about the forums for around a year now and three weeks ago I began the wonderful (expensive? nah...) experience of Bimmer ownership. The "Beast" as I affectionatly car her, fell into my lap at an oppurtune time (blown head gasket on the Saturn SL2 - haven't gotten around to fixing that for some reason : ) Here are the numbers:

    (Please excuse the spelling and grammar. Two large bottles of Chimay are speaking)

    1) Model Year: 1988
    2) Model Number: 535i 5-speed
    3) Design generation: e28
    4) Color: currently Bronzitbeige-Metallic
    5) Major options: pay as little upfront and add every possible option in $400 to $500 increments so the wife won't catch on...
    6) Modifications: so far, crime stopper 533i alarm, ~1000 watt sound system (stats and photos on completion) Just got OMP seats for the front, will install soon (photos on completion), hell, photos of the car as it stands, as soon is I find my digital camera...
    7) Use: as often as possible, repeat as necessary...
    8) Awards or Accomplishments: I was once double dog dared to put my tongue on a frozen flag pole...wait or was that a movie?
    9) Ownership history, when did you buy it, etc...: I am the third owner. She was all original when I bought her. 160,000 on odometer. I do have a leaky ps system (Any advise is truly welcome!) Slight rust area around parking lights. (only rust on the car). Couple dents and dings, all minor. previous owner is a friend, works for a dealership, used the car to go 5 mins to work and back. He owned her for the last 7 years and put about 6,000 miles on her. Records log about half an inch thick for regular service like clock work.

    I am happy to be a part of the Bimmerforums and hope to say hey to you all. I have installed many car stereos in my cars and my friends cars, and I am handy with a multimeter, (actually I'm a phone guy, if you have questions about phones and data networks even) please feel free to email me for any help I can provide. supersweet43@hotmail.com

    good day to you sirs.....

    Ownership history: bought in early 2000 with 37k on it. Changed the wheels/tires out last year, now looking for an intake/exhaust system.

Actually, I think it enjoys being on the track a lot more than being on the road.<br><br><img src="http://www.disoriental.com/images/IMG_3297.jpg">
