      breakers or
      specialists in Europe?
      Appreciate any advise for upgrading engine/performance.I have just
      put fritz
      bits performance exhaust on.What else is worthwhile.All rest of car
      is still
      original. Anyone know where I could get a alpina b10 ecu?

        the big coupe groupe has greaat articles including leather restoration....replacing the windscreen is the easist way to make the car "new" when your are driving...do it. not to exspensive so have a pro do it. engine mods...the motor is a big air and feul pump. the more volume that goes thru the faster you go. balance the intake and exghaust, one without the other is a waste. kn filter have been the subject of much controversy lately. for intake i would look into a mass flow air meter conversion/ new camshaft /injectors for exghaust get some headers. perhaps suspension will be less exspensive and throughly enjoyable. i suggest ( these are installed on my e28 88m5) h&r lowering springs/ bilstene sport shocks/ 750il thrust arms/ use HUNTER GROUND FORCE balancing machine to tune the tires and rims. good luck!!

          having a little electrical problem with my 87 535i

          the circut that has the dashboard light, lighter ect
          keeps blowing. the only thing i noticed before this
          was the dial switch that controlls the light levels
          for the dash was a little wonky. also the radio is on
          , but does not play ( no sound ). does anyone know if
          the lighter circut has anything to do with the amp ( i
          did check the fuse in the amp and it seems fine )

          bill

          Message 4 of 8 , Sep 22, 2005
            the most common issue i am having with circiuts is the connection quality in the fuse box. the circiuts get hot and lose their conection regardless of component condition. cleaning the tenminal connects and tweaking the tabs to get a good snug connection combined with good quality fuses will help. pay attention to the shape of the bulletends , the more pointed the better. if the plastic at the base of the terminal ends is starting to deform due to heat( looks abit melted) it is time to bypass the terminal and install a extennal fuse ( or circiut breaker for thourghly diagnosed circuit that is problematic.) my ac aux fan has been treated to this solution with no further issues. the breaker shuts off before heat damage and automaticly kicks back on once cooled sufficaintly.
            bepassing is simply done by flipping over the fuse box snipping the isse lines and exstending them and routing them through two holes that you will carefully drill in the base of the box. use heat shrink connectors.
            good luck. photo on request.

                    Hey martin,
                    I would start the air sensor project first. It boasts some really signifacant gains and is theoretically the best place to start being the mouth of the beast. use the reccommended proceedures that the manufatcure/ sales people give you. having increased the intake efficancy, i would then move to the cams,call bavarian auto sport 800 535 2002 or contact bmp online for the parts for all of these projects. i believe that you will find euro headers available but I would try for something new. If possible get rid of the cat conv. on the way out w/ some bb tri flow or sprint pipes. this what i am going to do, but i am waiting for oppertunities to present themselves, such as an air flow meter gone bad, rusty pipes, ect.
                    best of luck!

                    ps. I have spent alot of time with this car and probably know about the little problems that you may encounter along the way, feel free to ask...
                    tip of the day...
                    take a circiut tester, open the hood, remove diagnostic cap, flip and use schemata to locate #7 pin. insert tester probe into pin, ground the tester somewhere on the body, get in the car, turn your ignition to pos. 2 ( not starting it) and wait about ten sec. or less for your service and oil lights to magically reset!!! have a great day, take the savings and buy a nice part for your darling e28.

                    Damion, thanks for the advice.
                    Can you give me any further details on the Mass flow
                    air meter conversion/camshaft/injectors & headers that
                    you would propose.Any pics or articles you know wjo
                    already have it .
                    Much appreciated.

                    the big coupe groupe has greaat articles including
                    leather restoration....replacing the windscreen is the
                    easist way to make the car "new" when your are
                    driving...do it. not to exspensive so have a pro do
                    it. engine mods...the motor is a big air and feul
                    pump. the more volume that goes thru the faster you
                    go. balance the intake and exghaust, one without the
                    other is a waste. kn filter have been the subject of
                    much controversy lately. for intake i would look into
                    a mass flow air meter conversion/ new camshaft
                    /injectors for exghaust get some headers. perhaps
                    suspension will be less exspensive and throughly
                    enjoyable. i suggest ( these are installed on my e28
                    88m5) h&r lowering springs/ bilstene sport shocks/
                    750il thrust arms/ use HUNTER GROUND FORCE balancing
                    machine to tune the tires and rims. good luck!!
