Re: New Pioneer 6x4" Speakers on the market

They do look nice, they don't seem ridiculously pricey, and you can't really go wrong with Pioneer. Obviously depending on how flash your head unit is will impact the quality of the sound they put out. Certainly anything will be better than what came stock, so if you're in the market for new speaker...

Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Interesting find Mamod, and it's developed into a very interesting thread too. $20K seems way too much to me, certainly here in the Australian market. Based on the pics & info it does look like it's a car that has been appreciated and valued by its owner, but it's asking price may depend on how stur...

Re: Legends of the Autobahn pix

Thanks for sharing the pics Bobbo. That's a very impressive array of cars. The new 8 Series and the i8 Roadster are impressive enough, but I can't imagine a show here in Australia that could also include an M1, a Z1 and a Z8 all at the same time.

Re: new guy saying hello....

That's a great looking car mate, well done. It sounds like a good find given how low the mileage is.

It'll look stunning with the Style 42s. Keep the pics coming.

And no mate, it's not just you - BMW Oz pricing is ridiculous, especially when it comes to the majority of E24-specific stuff. But the internet and postage makes owning thes...

Good stuff mate. I think the transformation between the first pic on page 1 of this thread and where you are now is a credit to you, and that car is lucky to have you! =D>

Now just remember to take care when parking nose-in at kerbs & gutters, and making your way up & down driveways. 8)

Awesome job Song. I've just caught up on the work you've been doing with the air dam and its very impressive. You've done a great job fixing it up and prepping it, and the finished paint looks outstanding. Great stuff, and thanks for sharing the progress. The colour looks stunning too. Colour-match ...

Very sorry to see this, but good to know it all seems repairable. I know from your posts how much you value this car, so I've no doubt it was gut wrenching for you when this incident happened. And it all happened quite quicky I'm sure, but I always find it really impressive how effective the ABS bra...

Re: Windshield washer nozzle location?

Some of the early models I've seen had a setup like that. Team Serco here in Australia own a 1976 633 which has spray jets through the vents rather than mounted on top. I'm not sure what year the change was made though. My old car was a '77 633 and it had the regular black nozzles on top of the bonn...

Gosh - it sure does look beautiful. In such great conditon and with such low mileage, I am glad that you chose not to sell it and are now able to enjoy it. You'll be pleased to know that I did successfully replace my cracked & faded seatbelt stems way back in 2008, although it did take me two goes t...

Hi Bob, I've had the 3M clear film on the headlights & nosecone of my car for about 5 or 6 years now. All things considered it works well. As Tommy says, its thicker & more durable than window tint. I'm pretty sure there are different thickneses of film available intended for different body sections...

The black accenting at the lights and windscreen looks good with that pinstripe and the black interior.

Hi Josh,

Nice - a 21st century six cylinder hot hatch. Fits a child's seat too huh? And I'll bet it has air-con.

March 31 or April 1 suits me best. What do others say? Same plan as above?
