Sequential indicators (UK)

Do any of our (older) UK members recall the problems we had with American Muscle Cars of the ‘70s with sequential indicators. Under Construction & Use regs. it was impossible to obtain an MOT if your car had these fitted. One had to rewire the indicators so that there was only one distinct “flash” a...

Re: UK M635CSi #348 for auction 09/11/2019 @ NEC

I might be wrong Pod, but I read the advert as the car having two owners after BMW GB. Yes, that’s correct Superman! I note that according to the auction results, you can “ buy for £24,150” - so it would appear that it failed to sell. IMO a bit of a bargain, considering #436 is up for £40k! Or was ...

Re: 5 x E24 635 Barn Finds for sale

A couple of manuals there. I thought lot #68 looked to be the best of a poor bunch. Has lot #75 got a buffalo interior? So #68 made £5,200 according to the other thread on this auction. IMO they all made much more than they are worth. Just goes to show the state of the market for our cars which are...

I have an original that I could send to them. If any more interest we might be able to do a bulk order.

Ron.
Sounds like a good idea. I had a look at their website. Quite expensive products, but a group buy should offer significant savings!

IIRC the plate they show as a shim in regard to the flywheel, is actually a plate with tabs on it that are bent against the bolt heads that hold the flywheel to the crank so they can't get loose.
That plate with the locking tabs is why you don't need/use lock washers.
+1 on that :wink:

I would be careful if you tow with that. Take it easy!
Agreed, I've seen them pull/tear from the spare tire wheel well.
I think that the loop is more of a tie-down for transportation than for towing :wink:

Estimate looks to be on the low side to me. Ex BMW GB who owned it for 29 years!

These were state of the art tires when they were introduced. that they required a specialty rim profile is what killed them, not because they were bad tire.
So in closing, dont hate on something just because you dont like it.

Re: Automatic box playing up

Welcome to The Forum!

So the engine doesn't cut out? Does the transmission go through all the gears smoothly? Does the kick-down work? Does the S/E/1-2-3 switch work and does it return to the central setting when you turn off and re-start the engine?

Not many posts on this thread any more. I wonder if its due to the increasing scarcity of our cars - or the general lack of activity on this board these days.... :-k

Re: Dinan M6 Turbo on Racecarsdirect

An interesting - looking car! Good paint as far as I can see. Shame about the additional side lights.

I do wonder about the mileage though. Only 2,500 miles in 18 years?

I'm surprised it didn't make more! Cheap in my opinion. I made the gross sale price £31,050 including buyer's premium.
