My Ride: 325I
My First BMW.

So 2 weeks ago I picked up my first BMW. A clean, 150k, 325I sport.
I've just added ZMax Fuel Treatment to a full tank of gas and Engine Restorer to my oil and have been running that through the engine for a few days now.
I'm hoping to start some threads on this project and have a timeline of this build.
I'll need help so I thought starting on this forum would be a good place to start.
I've started first by ordering new filters, spark plugs and coils, AMSoil 5w-40 Euro Formula oil, mann oil filter, and a fuel filter... what next??

Cant wait to start and be on the forums sharing it at the same time, cheers all.

No need to change coils unless you are getting misfires and the spark plugs have been ruled out.
