but the electrical is no good! (fire in the trunk) anybody have any tips before i start this project?
Depends on your location and availability of parts. In the US not many were imported so buying or finding part may be expensive and or challenging to say the least. I had a 95 164LS that way in great shape but the starter was due for replacement soon. I thought a simple replacement, but due to the FWD and location you practically have to remove the engine to get access to it. Needless to say I traded it for another ride, I didn't want the headache. Besides, when finding a new starter the prices were ridiculously over cost. So I'd have to refurbish it myself. Great car, but BMWs are Mercs are so much easier to deal. ;)
