Re: 85 euro m635csi - my project

The crank at the hub has some scoring but nothing too bad. As for the lower guide that's a good question about cutting it. That seems to be the only way to get it off without removing the head. In both these threads the person had to cut the guide. - http://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=133139&p...

Re: Euro M635csi Diamond Schwarz M88/3

- Price?
- Was timing chain and guides replaced (m88/3) has single row chain?
- Compression numbers seem a little low for a 112k mile motor.

Re: How Do I Separate This Plug Housing

Remove the Wire with a pick from the open wire side, then around. Then pull apart. Just like fuel injector connections.

They are bolted to the bottom of all e28 based e24/e28s front strut tubes.

Makes Strut replacement a lot easier.

Re: Best period audio

I am really happy with my VDO/Conti unit with bluetooth. It installs well and sounds great. No preouts if you want a Amp and sub but I don't go that far into Audio tech stuff. I removed my old premium amp and bypassed it, this unit has more power than the old unit with the amp to power 6 speakers. h...

Re: 1985 635CSI - Euro Spec, Schwarz

VIN? Does it have a LSD? How many miles are on it? Have you ran a car fax at all to verify miles? What do you mean by "Front bumper chrome" looks like the bumpers are painted. Is that a custom cluster with the red letters? Which wheels are you selling it with? the Borbets? or the e39 M5 replicas

Re: Tell us what type of motor oil you prefer?

In the US we still don't believe in the metric system... So most items come in quarts or gallons. I think you can by 1 gallon, 5 quart, or 2.5 gallon. But most large oil containers are 1 gallon or 5 quarts... A 5 quart of Mobile one full synthetic 0-w40 jug at old wally world is about $23 dollars. C...
