Re: how many 635's have you encounter? (Encountered)

Saw a Royal Blue S2 example on the N90 just outside Bourg St. Maurice (France) on Saturday morning. It flashed past so I couldn’t see what model, but it was very clean so I guess it could have been an “M”.

Re: Car cut out while driving - wont restart! Help!

Read the thread "M635 not starting". This should give you some pointers.

I'm wondering if the previous owner had similar issues? Why not contact them and see what they did to get it running?

Good luck.

Re: No Heater or AC fan

No doubt you know that if the aircon button is operated, the aircon fan will start and the “normal” fresh air fan will stop. There may be a conflict and I would start here if I were you. Try disconnecting the aircon button for starters and see if the fresh air fan starts working? Good luck!

Re: steering wheel alignment

I agree with 603. All the guy wants to do is have the ‘wheel in the correct position. I’ve done this scores of times - it’s pretty obvious when the wheel is correctly installed when you drive down the road!

Hi Guido,

I’m absolutely sure this came from a S2 car, most likely ‘85 or ‘87.

Re: Removing Radio Antenna / Aerial

I can’t see it making any difference to the value if the hole is properly made good. However, unless the osr wing is being painted anyway, why go to the considerable expense of welding up the hole and then having the paint done? Most E24s have the aerial located here and I cannot see why you would w...

Re: Another one bit the dust

A shame - their good name has certainly reached these shores. Maybe the owners have reached retirement? Sounds as if they are trying to ensure the business continues though :-k

Re: Number Plates.

Is this the oldest thread reamination ever? Just saw it whilst doing a search for a reg.no! Some names of bigcoupe members from the past are on it.

Anyway, about 40 years ago, there used to be a MK2 Escort in the Orpington area with the plate 150 D.

Re: How to revive or recondition cordless power tool batteries

That’s an interesting question. On the face of it, these chargers shut themselves off once a defined period of time has elapsed or a full charge is registered. So there’s little point in leaving them connected anyway as they aren’t like battery trickle chargers which are designed to plug in and leav...

Re: Fuel smell in cabin

The three pipes very often rust where they meet the tank. With a full tank, you will get some leakage which will produce the smell as the fuel sloshes around.

Re: FS - UK RHD M635CSi #390

I heard back from the seller who confirmed that that it is the same car as he apparently watches this forum. Rather strange he hasn’t posted on here as he could well have sold it easier to like-minded enthusiasts. Apparently, I am not a “serious buyer” as I failed to “pick up the ‘phone”. Little doe...
