Another New Guy?

Hello all..

Just checking in to say hello..

I recently purchased an 88 260e w/ just over 200k showing on the ticker.. It's amazing how a car older than my kids has held up so well..

The car is Blue exterior w/ Gray interior.. Drivers seat has some issues with the base and the leather, the Factory radio is no longer in place and when I put the windows down, the sounds cuts out all together.. A quick bump next to the shifter solves this problem for now.. To bad only the front drivers speaker has sound comming from it..

Everything else, except for the rear driver side window and drivers headrest, works as it should.. The drivers headrest will rise but needs help lowering..

In the engine bay, there is some sweating of oil in the side of the block.. but nothing major..
Trans shifts a bit hard going into second gear..
Brakes pulse a little as well..

All in all.. I'm happy with my new friend / project..
