Re: System flush

The system takes 12l.

I did an expensive engine rebuild last year and after reading all sorts of stuff I used BMW coolant @ 40% strength mixed with tap water.

......underneath the trim cover. There is a plastic expansion tank with 4 hoses connected. 3 are vents from the fuel tank filler neck (under/below the rubber flap), and the 4th connects to a fixed line that should/may run too a charcoal canister up front.

Re: WTB - Ignition Switch Assembly...

These do wear and given they are a bit of a pain to remove, especially if you haven't removed the shear bolts, in my opinion is something better off replaced with new. Once you have the whole steering lock out is very simple to swap over the lock cylinder.

Re: Fuel Rail Assembly

The regulator goes to the front so can only be orientated one way Use rubber grease on the o rings and if they're old replace them.

Re: Cheap gas..

We pay that plus per LITRE for petrol (has fallen about 30c in the last few weeks), after an all time high. Diesel is cheaper but then we have to buy roas user charges. I think we're the most expensive market in the OECD - roughly 50% tax . I remember when I first started driving - was like 50c per ...

Re: Updating an M635csi Track Car to a Race Car

Not sure if you want to try and stay original. Have you considered a custom loom, deleting the dizzy, going to a 60-2 trigger with individual coils or wasted spark?
