It may seem as though it is desirable that the members here will see the continuation of the life of loose_unit (Joe) and larswey (Lars Erik) 's old 1988 model Bmw 535i, so therefore should I as best keep people updated on how this ancient beauty lives his life in Norway:)

I have not bought the car yet, but we agree on the price and I'll buy it. I have long wanted very much on a e34 with a little more power than the 525, so when I saw this car was available for sale, I was quick and contacted Lars Erik:) I lost my mother in the summer and inherited some money, which gave me the opportunity to put some more money in the car than I have been able to do before. My spouse and i need two new cars and we have therefore decided this gorgeous car and have also bought an e38 Bmw 728iA, 1999 model :) Only Bmw applicable to us:) So now I hope that it will stand a 535i in our courtyard during this week:) Continuation follows:)

Easiest way is to upload them to http://imgur.com/ (no account required) and then copy/paste the "BBCode (message boards & forums)" code that you get after uploading. It'll be the image's URL surrounded by

Finaly @ home with my baby and now my 520i have got company :-D
I've decided that the car should be wintered and not run on salted roads. The roads in Norway are flooded every winter with salt due to traffic, which often does great damage to the brakes and suspension, not to mention the paint on cars. This I will not do to my car. This car is a veteran of three years and if I can manage to keep the rust and pretty it will be even more valuable with age. I bought myself a so-called plastic garage to make the utility until I get built me a proper garage next summer:)

You should make a separate thread for your 520i. :)

Hello:) It's been a while since I've been here now. Since I bought the car, I have made ??a number of detailed work. I am very concerned about the small details and like to know that it is clean and nice, even where one does not see. Therefore some pictures of this:)
ps; I avail myself of google translate since I'm not so good in English, so therefore you may grammar is a bit weird. But assume that you understand what I write:)

The driver's seat in the car had a blown seam so I got the seat repaired at one saddler:) Then I saw my incision to clean a little inside the car too:) So I put some pictures of the process as well:)
