Bought the car in 1999, currently has 250k miles, the car was originally from the NorthEast so I struggle with the typical corrosion on exposed metal surfaces, but fortunately no salt cancer.
My background is 20 years in USAF, another 20 in the aerospace industry in Atlanta GA.
Currently own the 89 300TE, a 96 Jetta, 85 BMW 745 turbo (gray market upgraded to 450rwhp, 85 BMW M635CSi Euro with 62k miles, a 99 F350 7.3l diesel 4x4 and contribute extensively to the BMW e23, e24 and e28 discussion groups.
Consider myself a moderatly competant wrencher having owned and rebuilt Peugeot 403 and 404s, a Alfa Romeo Berlina, VW Beetles, a VW Euro Van, a 533 plus 2 different 735.
need to find a good technical library for the w124 chassis.
