Default Say hello to my little friend

Hello everyone . I am new here . I bought a 1996 318ti from a guy in chicago off craigslist. I wanted the car because it was different. I have alot of work to do to bring it back to it's former glory. I just replaced the driveshaft and the oil filter housing gasket and valve cover gaskets and spark plugs. also replaced the trans mounts. After all that the brake hose went and blew on me. Me and this car are really getting to know each other. I also found out one of the front and one of the rear coil springs are broken. Lucky the car was cheap and I do all my own wrenching. I will keep you guys posted .

I tackled the hood release cable today. I can now agree with everyone that it is a pain. Tried to thread the new cable with the old one. that didn't work so I had to take the fender off. Hopefully I won't have to do that again. Next up rear suspension
