Re: UK M635CSi #410 FS on ebay.

The engine bay still looks very clean. Why on Earth would a vendor show a photo of a boot full of old bits and pieces plus rusty tools? The rear seats look just about as bad as any I have ever seen, so why picture them too. At the very least he could have cleaned the car up a little. £22k without an...

What famous rock star(s) have you bumped into?

I'll start the ball rolling. Yesterday I was walking along Notting Hill Gate and turned left (blind corner) into the alley next to Oxfam's. I very nearly crashed into David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), who adroitly swerved around me without breaking his step or interrupting his conversation with the attrac...

Re: '84 633CSi / Manual / $1300

Honestly, I'm trying to figure out how to get my wife to agree to this. The fly in the ointment is that I'm buying another E30 today (Wednesday) and she wasn't to happy about that.

Anybody know what this tool does?

A good friend of mine, now sadly deceased, left his American car spares business (Marshall Dickson Performance in Kent, England) to his brother, another of my friends. Amongst the great quantity of spares, cars and tools, this has been found. It looks as if it is some sort of chuck with a hexagonal ...

Re: The Beast AGAIN!!

Back on again at a tad under £14k. Although the description hasn't changed very much since it was first listed more than seven years ago, the asking price certainly has and somewhere along the way, the current owner reckons it puts out 300bhp! I doubt it :-k https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-635csi-E24...

Re: Nine 9s?

I remember my first (99,999 clickover to 000000 :wink: ) and guess I always will. It was an old 1965 Triumph Vitesse 6 which I'd bought with many miles on it. It was in 1975 and the car was a survivor (at only ten years old), even then! The thing is, in those days, it was very rare for a British car...

Re: Swapping 86/86 sport seats into 88/89 car - anyone done it

I removed a set of electric Highline seats which had been fitted into a 1986 car, so they will definitely fit. You'll just need the wiring loom which runs under the carpet, alongside the transmission tunnel and plugs into the junction box fitted onto the firewall. An easy installation!

Re: 1986 M635 UK

Price was reduced to £11,995 last week and was withdrawn from eBay yesterday so I guess it’s been sold. How long before the new owner posts on this forum, or it appears with a dealer asking £30k+ :-k

I can’t understand why this would only be a problem in reverse though
Maybe because in reverse you don't rev the engine, but let it go back either at tickover or low revs? Does it drive forward @ tickover without the same problems?

Bilstein B6 - but which part numbers?

Hi Guys,

Need a little help here. Looking to fit B6s front and back, but there appear to be several part numbers available for the same car - or am I going mad?

Has anybody recently fitted them to a S2 car and if so, do you have the numbers please?

TIA :-)

I liked it as well - apart from the interior colour. The wheel arch flares (weren't they called "IMSA arches"?) really suit it!
