  • My '86 525e has poor cold start, it needs the gas pedal pressed down and will not idle till it warms up a bit, about 5 mins, stalls in drive etc. It's a L-Jet with DME-Motronic, what's the most likly cause and what should I check first? Thanks AndyB

  • Hi everyone, Got a '86 525e with factory air con (very rare in the UK!), trouble is, it blows cold all the time!
