Well first off, I'd like to say that I'm new when it comes to cars. Don't get me wrong I LOVE cars, I'm just no mechanic lol. I purchased her for $1500 but didn't know exactly what I was getting into. The head unit is missing and there are other minor interior problems. More importantly, the car is too low and I have been advised by many mechanics that I have to get her raised to factory settings because the previous owner wanted to "Race" her and did a HORRIBLE job lowering her. It's so low that my tires rub my fenders when I turn or hit bumps (and it can be a bumpy ride). The lower RPM is kinda laggy but it pulls hard when going above 50mph. I've never ran her over 100 because it feels like something under the hood is shaking when I go 70mph+ but I can let go of the wheel and she'll drive straight. Idk what's up. There is a dark, black fluid leaking from the engine, but I've whipped it off and haven't currently checked to see if it's still leaking. I also need a new breather hose, but I actually know how to put those on because well it's just removing from point A & B and replacing (I just have to get one). I am willing to put alot of money into my car. I want to be able to take her down to the track sometimes with my buddies to do some runs in the future. Any advice is GLADY appreciated. Thank you for reading :)(People say I should sell her and just get a better BMW that's at least 5speed instead of getting a swap so I'm still deciding on what's not only better for the car, but cheaper.)
