This site is not a complete "book" on the older BMWs and it never
will be. I only write for three reasons;
1. When I find that a current article is incomplete/inaccurate.
2. As an answer to a request for info.
3. I remember an issue that I haven't seen addressed on the
With the Internet to help, we now have the best quality information
ever available for BMW. Some of the info on the web is really bad and I

made many errors and these pages are an attempt to correct the ones I know
about. I may be wrong, but I call it as I see it, no BS here.
