Re: Alternative Front Seats - Later E24 (1987)

Yes. You can see the seat back release lever right by the seatbelt buckle. In fact, the belt is hanging on the actual lever.

Re: BBS RC090 finish selection opinion

Thats what I said. Sometimes (usually) it's listed as "et", which is a contraction of the German "einpresstiefe", which means pressed-in depth. Some wheel manufacturers, like BBS, list it as "is". It all means offset.

Re: BBS RC090 finish selection opinion

The 17 is obvious, the rim size. The "is" ( usually is "et") is the offset. The 80 may be 8" width, but that's a guess.

Re: Wheels that I hope will fit

When mated with correct size tires, the 18" wheel look just as proper as 17". It depends on the stance of the suspension and the type of wheel.

Re: Electric Air Races

After visiting their site it's obviously a sleek, futuristic drone. And judging from the propeller sizes, it's not very large. They claim it's a "manned" drone. I doubt you can fit an adult in it. Maybe latter versions.... I say more power to them! We are way past due for the flying cars we were pro...

Re: Electric Air Races

No airfoil, no visible design feature to achieve flight. I'd say it's a hoax. Notice it says they will be remotely controlled. With nothing close to it for a sense of reference, I wonder if it's actually an RC model, as in small. With enough thrust you can make a brick fly (witness the F4). [-(

Welcome to the insanity, Tom!

You've scored a winner. Low mileage and no rust. Treasure it.

That's not dirt in the instrument cluster. It's "flocking". Made that way from the factory. I guess BMW thought it was elegant. :roll:

Re: trying to post pic n keep getting this message

Yup, it's an issue with Bigcoupe.com itself. Bobbo sent me two versions of a picture he tried to upload, and I couldn't get them to go, either, even though someone in that thread was able to upload the same picture. Now it seems everyone is having the same problem.

Welcome to the insanity! You just posted a list of problems/things wrong with E24s that are common to just about every E24 you'll find, especially barn/woods finds. A couple of them are easy fixes.
