Re: Non-sunroof E24s

My 80 euro is a slick top. I'm wondering if any of the cars for export to North America had a slick top? :-k

Re: Can someone Post a Picture of Series 1 with H&R 40mm Lowered springs with 16 inch rims

Ozi,

Look at the photos in my signature line. H&R springs and 16X7 wheels. 205's up front, 225's in the rear.

Re: An "On"/"Off" switch in the trunk?

My 635Csi has one just like it, but in the center console ash tray. It disables the fuel pump. Switch it and the motor will crank but no fuel to start it. My son called me late one nite, said it would not start, so I went out get it started or towed. He had flipped the switch, I flipped it back and ...

PhoenixOp,
The 76 station on State St. down town Boise has all 3 grades non ethanol. The 66 stations, one on Overland Rd. by the Edwards Cinema, and one on Fairview in Meridian have only non ethanol, but only regular.

My 1980 635 windows stick up at least an inch (never measured) when they're all the way down. Makes putting your arm on the window sill kind of annoying. Previous owner said thats just the way these cars are. My rear window only goes down like 60 percent on both sides, I assume thats normal too? Ye...

That's all well and great (except a water pump for 17£, mine was $50 something and I bought the cheap one) but in the grand scheme of cars, e24's are not cheap to run. As for cars of this age, it might be in line with or cheaper than most performance cars of this age, but go buy a 1985 Honda Accord...

Brian, if you have everything sorted out, then its just normal costs involved. Gas, oil, tires. My 635 is fairly cheap to operate, gets decent mileage, not hard on tires with suspension geometry setup correctly(tires wear fairly even across the tread). The fun factor with these cars is well worth it...

Klaus, is this AFM the same for the stock euro system, as for the US system you have on your motor? I have a 1980 euro 635, and I to have some extra used AFM and other parts in reserve, for just in case. Did you happen to notice in your research if they are different and/or available?
