Hello fellow BMW enthusiasts, my name is Chuck. I live in Indianapolis and I've been restoring (on an almost non-exsistant budget) a 1986 535i. I reverse inherited it when my daughter and new son-in-law moved to Florida about 6 years ago. It was not running at the time. I got it to start, then got it home and have been tinkering with it ever since.
I had a '93 525i after the '86 but after a icy winter incident and repair bills higher than the insurance value I had to say goodbye to it.
