Just be aware that most Electrical diagrams relate to the American spec.cars. In various places the Euro system differs.

Re: Losing Brake Pedal When Engine Running

I've been following this thread with some interest as on at least 8 cars I have had the same symptom ie pedal slowly sinks with engine running. I talked to a local BMW specialist garage (I think around 15 years ago) who confirmed that he'd had the same thing with other models and makes and never did...

Re: Fuel Rail Assembly

Re: Brake bleeding advice

Do I need to pump the pedal 12 times even with Motive bleeder? Yes to dump the pressure from the "bomb". Take the cap off the power steering reservoir and pump the pedal. The fluid level should rise. When the pedal goes hard, you have dumped all the pressure, and you can change your brake hoses and...

Re: RHD M635 Register

I bought a 1989 635csi highline in April RHD in nagaro silver (pic attached). I found a post you put up back in 2007 bayerische which suggested this could be one of 23 cars that were made right at the end of the run. You suggested on the post that this was referred to as an M635csi. Is that right? ...

Although I got the balljoint apart, there was a bit of damage to the thread of the bolt side.
Leave the nut on wound to the top (so that there is no thread showing) and then use the splitter.

Re: m635 Exhaust options

In case you are in any doubt about the standards of craftsmanship concerned, just look at the finish inside the fritz's system near the exhaust ports and compare it with Brickwhite's pictures above. The former is smooth and offers no obstruction to the gas path . I bought a full M88 Fritz's system ...
