Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Great car! But why did you loose the yellow headlights?

@ Ite: Arnold did have those Alpina stripes made by a friend. If you ever find a decent M535i, he can help you for sure. But original is more desirable.
It's the man next door!

Original BMW is not for sale any more, only M-technik, but that is not the same.

Nope, sold a few years ago...
They are not so expensive at the dealer, a few years ago for 120euro for 4 yellow beams.

Thanks Gerrit!
Shortly afther i bought is the engine broke down. So I put another one in it (also M90)with reconditionned head, compression was 11.5-12bar on all cylinders. I changed all the seal of it and made it more presentable. Now I am looking for parts to rebuild the original one.
And because the engine had to come out I took the change to respray the whole car.

Toke out the doors for the job and found an original M535i e12 rubbers spoiler on ebay.

One day..


You've done a good job.
Funny to see that all bmws from that building time do have the exact building structure.
Evenso the early e23s are basicly the same.
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
