|Well, it's not as hot in Alabama as it is for everyone out in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and other states that had the "bubble o' heat": BUT, it's still hot enough that I am going to fix the AC.
I am researching compressors (rebuilt/ new) no Ebay, and wanted to know if anyone had any purchases with some of the shops on Ebay that specialize in our beloved 3 series vehicles that they would recommend? I'm calling bavarianbmwparts today, as I used to get parts for my previous e30's through them, but again, the e36's are a slightly different beast.
I have contemplated taking it to the local bimmer shop, but they want $1100, and I really would prefer to do all that I can myself before taking it in to be charged/ checked for leaks, etc.
Currently looking for a good e30 to rebuild
