So I ditched buying the e12 and opted for a better condition e28 525e. I believe its the 2.7L engine. Just got the car home this evening, the ride is quite comfortable to say the least. I do have a few issues I need to sort out though. These are as follows....
Runs very rich as I get lots of black smoke out of the exhaust.
A bit of a hesitation on the gearbox, whereby I need to give it a slight rev before it engages, and also it sounds as if it slips out of gear when I drive it. I think this would be down to low oil levels. Still need to check this.
Other than that, I'm happy. As I have never owned one before, could you guys possibly give me some advice regarding these two issues please.
