  1. Do rotors axle stubs from any 5lug BMW swap to a 74 2002 Would like to do a wheel swap to 15or17 not many choices for a rear wheel drive vehicle all new cars seem to use a front wheel drive offset Seem to remember you could swap Bavaria rotors and caliper

  4. Have a problem with my 1974 2002 When I first start engine cuts out Ignition system is the problem believe ther is a relay or something Acts like a thermostat as engine warms up the problem goes away I installed a bypass wire from battery car act normal Remove wire problem returns What am I missing just install 32weber choke working perfect
  5. Don't bother replacing shocks on bumper just drill a hole be careful they are pressurized just push in the oil will come out then just.
