Re: O2 sensor location

Thanks for the reply.

I was under the impression that from 1980 onwards, the e12 was fitted with a lambda probe.
I guess I'll have to look elsewhere in order to find out why I'm doing 17l/100km (16-17mpg), and that's on mostly highways. Is this consumption within the range of what's normal?

Thanks!

O2 sensor location

Hi all,

I've searched the board, but to no avail.

Can anyone tell me where to find the O2-sensor?
528i from May 1980. It should be there, right?

Thanks!

Re: Excellent parts source

For the Euro crowd, there's wallothnesch.com. I ordered parts from them this week and their service and handling is nothing short of impeccable. They even included a binder with the entire parts catalog you find on sites like bmwfans.info, completely free of charge.

Re: Digital Clock Stuck at 1:00

Hi, I came here to ask this exact question, and it's atop of the page. Awesome! So what you're saying is to disconnect the negative lead from the battery, let it touch the positive end of the battery, reconnect the negative lead and things should be fine? I am really bad at electronics and have no i...

So a 265/5 from an E30 M3 wouldn't pose a problem, provided that I get the right bell house? Would that be all I'd need?

@Jelmer:
I would consider selling my OD box, but frankly, I don't know when exactly I'd do the switch. If it's done, I'll be sure to let you know.

1980 528i transmission swap - G265/6 to G265/5

In the mean time, I have a number of questions about a tranny swap. I've racked up about 5000km these last few months, using the 528i as a daily dr...
