Default 1988 M3 15k Original Miles , Maintenance

Hello,

I'm a longtime vintage Porsche owner and have recently acquired my first BMW, a 1988 E30 M3. The car has 15k original miles and is in very nice condition, obviously it hasn't been driven much but has had annual oil changes and minor maintenance.

I have record of the gas tank and fuel pump being changed and the driveshaft bearings being replaced.

At this point due to it's age I would like to go through the car mechanically to insure all systems are 100% and all services are up to date.

I'm asking the forum's assistance in compiling a list of jobs/items that should be addressed/checked.

Thanks,

JF

Thanks,

JF

You may be better off getting info from s14.net.

Congrats on the purchase and looks like you got quite the gem there. Any pics?
