Instead of fixing it in the street here, a friend is driving from Los Angeles with a flatbed to tow us back home, where I can fix this at my leisure in much nicer conditions. ...

Thanks for the insight, guys. Of course, I'm out of town for the Holidays. I've got a line on borrowing some jack stands and will start tearing down tomorrow am.

I'm in Las Vegas, NV, where vintage BMW parts are non existent.

Have you checked your radiator flow? Is it uniformly hot, or are there cool spots? Uniformity of temperature is desirable. Temp inconsistencies indicate internal flow issues/clogs.

Will a late (1987) exhaust fit my early (1982) car?

My 82 is in need of exhaust replacement. There is an 87 at the Boneyard with cat gone but resonator and huge muffler intact. Will that larger, squared muffler fit in the provided space in my 82?
