    Just Purchased 88 M5

    Hi all, Just purchased 88 M5 after 20 some other vintage BMWs, 2002s, Bavarias, 320is, 323i, 535i(e28). See the link below, I have so much to learn on this thing... I actually already found an answer concerning the heat out of the center vent, via the archives.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Still no heat from Center vents

    I have heat in the footwell and defroster, but none out the center vent. I replaced the heater control valve insert, but still no change. Where to next?

    that is the way BMW designed it

    Fresh air in your face to keep you alert. Warm air on your feet to keep your feet warm and of course the defroster.

    Welcome! For that price, Steve Haygood will become

    ..your new best friend. Call him first when you need parts. That's some high miles on there. Any chance the motor was rebuilt, or do you plan to do it yourself? They are mighty cars. BMW seems to have forgotten how to build a car with soul like the original M5. Keep her going, and I hope you don't have to spend $15k on up to drive her.

    any idea what the original intention of the big

    vent on the top of the dash was? Our cars have a blank cover over the vent, but if you get an older vent like I did, then you can have whatever air that normally comes from the vents also come out the top. Seems to give some cool air to the back seats?

    any guesses?

    Hi Bruce,

    I'm guessing "a perfect place for a center channel" is wrong huh?;-)
