Manhattan, they're not as difficult to work on as you might think. The biggest challenge is getting to know them, what their common problems are, what the best ways are to tackle certain things, etc. That takes some time and effort. The most difficult part of it, I find, is the lack of space--removing stuff to be able to remove stuff in order to remove the bad part. Of course, there are jobs and there are JOBS, but don't let the mystique of "German Engineering" scare you off.

I'm not sure there are any bad years for these cars, really. A few design weaknesses were ironed out by 86/87, as I understand it. Styling may be something of an issue. Pre-86 cars are a bit more of a time-warp to the days of Duran Duran and big hair.
