Re: Mystery spot in the toolkit box

Jono, BMW never had a factory in East Germany, that side wasn't known for making anything of much value [-X so there must have been a West German BMW plant, as well as a East German plant for BMW then I am assuming?

Re: Mystery spot in the toolkit box

my pipe wrench/pliers say "West Germany" is this correct? they fit perfectly in there just curious why it doesn't say "B.M.W." ? Jono, the tools indicate that they were made in W.

Re: Staggered Rial rims: what tire sizes?

Hey Val, Yes, life is busy ](*,) Those are probably the correct tire sizes for those wheels, or were, back in the day, when those were considered "wide" :-k You might try and step up to 225/50's up front and 245/45's out back, but with a front wheel offset of 23mm, you may have tire on strut interfe...

G03rt2, got this PDF file most likely from the "Big Blue Book" for US cars :-?

Other than Pod's potential observation that you may have aftermarket A/C, which was fairly common in Euro cars, the venting and operation of the knobs and levers should all be the same [-o<

And, my bad, my photo is of an oil temp sensor, not pressure sensor :oops:

My apologies, ya think I might be able to actually read :roll:

Bottom line, with the oil cooler feed lines connecting into the oil filter mount, this wouldn't work anyway [-X
