Re: 1988 M6 for sale

Appreciate the feedback. Agree the car market all around seems a little slow. As for my asking price, I would simply say that this car was purchased in the price range of those BAT auctions and the difference with mine is that once the compression and leak down checked out on the engine, I gave a b...

Re: Losing 17" Alpinas for 15" rims. Need tire advice.

For a 7" wheel, 205 is preferred as it is a slightly narrower tire on the width of the wheel. That will give you better steering feel and slightly better response than a 225 on a 7" wide wheel. 215 could work as well, but Alpina/Hartge preference was 225/50/16 on 8" and 205/55/16 on 7" I use 225 on ...

Re: 1980 635CSi Euro

I think you're running the oil cooler Ted ? Check the pressure relief valve in the oil filter housing. I do have the cooler. Since it is early housing, it is tough to see underneath. How do I check the valve? Can't seem to find any documentation on it... I did find this: years ago, m30 oil pumps ha...

Re: 1980 635CSi Euro

Thanks. I'll have to try the microphone inside the car next time. I couldn't make it this past week because of a strange issue. The most recent strange behavior is that when I start the car the last couple of times, the oil filter cannister blows out the oring seal and leaks oil rather than pumping ...

Re: Front seats in excellent condition

Good luck, but your price may be optimistic as a lot of people are looking for sport seats over comfort. The comforts seem to hold up a bit better as well.

Re: Is this an M30 or M90?

Motronic sensors plus brake booster indicates it could be an M90. If waterjacket and L is not present, ECU/AFM or a look at the pistons would be the only way to tell for sure.

My '81 Motronic sensors had a different bracket, but maybe RHD and LHD are different...

Can you jump the fuel pump through the combo relay and get it to run? I had a similar problem in 2010 and it was a bad combo relay.
