Re: Period correct BMW phone with cradle.

Val, If you still have the 750, you should look under the rear seats, or trunk, as there is more to the phone than what you show. 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...

Re: E34 540i Brake Upgrade

Mark,
If you do the M/C upgrade use the e32 early 750, before 12/90, as the later one after 12/90 is incorrect.
It has the larger bore and will fit the e24.
And the 750 is less $ than the e24

Re: RHD steering box - is it from M635/M5?

Hi Kamil,

The only way to confirm is to see how many revolutions there is from L to R, Lock to Lock.
The M cars had a quick ratio about 3.0 revolutions.
And normal e24 is 3.5
This is off of a internet site, I cannot verify that this is the truth.

So the box is to be removed from the bottom: engine suspended/subframe lowered.
If you read 32-9, it does not say remove subframe
