Amazing E24 prices SEEM to be achieved on ebay UK

This one recently "sold" for £5,000. Apparently it "may" have been a Motorsport :-k 21 bidders and 38 bids, so even if there was an element of shill bidding, surely some of them must have been genuine? For a "hedge find"? For restoration. Really :shock: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/bmw-635-csi-not-a-b...

Re: Cabin filter

Not as far as I am aware. Certainly never seen one on any of my 30+ E24s I've owned over the years.

Are you looking for the compressor, the evaporator, the controls, what exactly do you want?
I read it as the matrix which locates over the transmission tunnel.

Re: Auto trans filter/fluid change

Since it’s working fine, why take the risk? If you change the filter and it does cause problems, then you’ll have to do the swap earlier than you wish.

Re: Instrument cluster fuse blowing

According to the official BMW (US) manual, fuse #10 is instruments and OBC. Suggest you try disconnecting the OBC first and see if it still blows. If that fails to work, you could try disconnecting various feeds to the instrument panel. That may indicate the problem. If that fails, try connecting a ...

Re: 1983 Gp. A (E24-RA1-08)

Rather oddly I ended up with an Alpina Group A ECU for a car like this; I'd bought it of t'internet as it had a stock BMW case for my 1982 car but on opening it up and checking the interior it had an Alpina part number on it; I checked the part number with Buchloe as I didn't recognise it and they ...

Re: 79 euro 265 cr, 3.07 diff, driveshaft, + shell

If the engine is still in situ, why not insist that the buyer takes the whole car and disposes of the parts he does not want. It’ll save you the bother. The engine is probably one of the less desirable parts anyway, so why split it? If, on the other hand you are keeping the engine, then you only hav...

There is a formed carpet piece glued to each tower, also held by a plastic “U”-shaped section trim running down to the rear light units. Pull off the trim and then just peel off the carpet. The single piece of carpet is retained by a couple of plastic clips (which press into the rear vertical bulkhe...

Re: Does this seem like a bad ABS Relay?

If one of the sensors or rings is dirty, they’ll often throw up a light when you reach a certain speed, in my memory something like 50-60 mph. Try and clean them all before you start throwing money at it.
