Re: Air-con BMW 635CSI M

Fellow Forum members, I rebuild A/C Compressors, for the BMW Behr/Bosch Wingcell Compressor on the e23,e24,e28,e30,e31,e32 and others. What is good about is that the Wingcell, it can use either r12 or r134. These Wingcells after a rebuild, with new seals and bearings, are good for another 30 years. ...

Re: One day left on my M6 on Bring A Trailer

Dear Mr, no name,

Congrats, your car selling at ($41,500) your mileage was at 59,000, yours should have been higher, as its been 2 + years.

My '87 m6 I sold 2 years ago, on BAT for $41,750, I had around 68,000 miles. I was hoping for more.

I just finished rebuilding my A/C Compressor on my m6

Fellow Forum Members. Well, my Compressor had a very slow leak, but it was hard to tell where because of a previous owners valve cover leak. The compressor was covered in oil and dirt, probably from many years of that leaking gasket. So I decided to get this done before Summer. I spent a lot of hour...

Re: Master Cylinder replacement, e24 or e32?

Fellow Members,

I also went with the e32 M/C with the larger bore, and saw/felt no difference.
Make sure you get the early e32, as there are two styles.
The e32 was also less money.

And its not worth anything, the way it is with the cord cut and the other parts missing. My '87 m6 had a new phone installed in '87 and I saw the rest of the phone equipm...
