Re: Driver's side door surround gasket.

It’s a good idea to “exercise” all the windows regularly. The non-driver ones (in particular, the rears) tend to get less use and can move slowly or even stop working.

Re: New Member - Just bought a M6 across the country

Welcome to the forum. Looks like a great buy. Since it has high mileage anyway, why not drive it home yourself?

Re: Consensus on Rust Proofing?

I always use zinc spray which you can get at Screwfix. You could lay some other rustproofing over this - perhaps some stonechip/body schutz. Its much cheaper and easier to put on a decent thickness if you use a gun rather than aerosol cans.

Re: Door closing sound

I’ve always liked the sound when the doors are firmly pushed (not slammed) - so I think yours is normal. Could you post a sound bite of it?

Re: VIN number location on an 85 635CSI

It should be at location #1 as you merntioned. The only thing I can think of is that you have a replacement body. This should have been stamped up by the dealer doing the work, but I have come across this before. May I suggest that you either try to get your local Main Agent to stamp it for you, or ...

Re: "M" #464 in UK.

Well, it made £18,000 + commission £2,160 = £20,160. I attended the auction and was going to bid -but not at that level! It was interesting that it was knocked down to an internet bidder very quickly with bid increments at £1,000 per time! Put that in comparison with other lots which painfully crept...

gas -by which I mean LPG rather than petrol, being in the UK- costs about £0.60/litre at present. This means £30 takes me 200-250 miles in my LPG-fuelled E24.

cheers
........but domestic LPG costs as little as £0.32/litre at the moment! Just need to get a tank installed :wink:

Re: Early e24 HVAC Troubleshooting

You obviously have a S1 car. I'm just wondering if you have aircon, as there is an extra fan which sits above the transmission tunnel which works independently of the fresh air fan mounted in the firewall in S2 cars and I would imagine its the same for the earlier models? No doubt somebody will corr...

Re: "M" #464 in UK.

I don't think it sold last time as the number of owners appears to still be four. No doubt the auctions were being "manipulated" at the time and the last one didn't flush out a genuine buyer!

I'll probably drive over next Monday to view the car.

Wow! Wished I could buy for those prices. Although cost has recently reduced, by about 10%, the best I’ve seen for unleaded is £1.199 per litre. By my calculations that’s $1.53/litre or $5.79/USGallon☹️
