Re: Fuel line replacement

I experienced this years ago, the problem was an overfill and also the road was not level. Now when the pump stops, I tend not to top off. Best to take a look, check the connections and the rubber lines. As you mentioned, probably a good idea to change the fuel lines and filter. I had my fuel lines ...

Re: door weatherstrip

I'm in the process of replacing my passenger side rubber seal. Is there a process of getting the rubber into the track at certain places? I'm having a heck of a time with the angle toward the front by the mirror. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Classic insurance

I've had Allstate since my 6 was a daily driver but after retiring it to the weekends, I switched over to Hagerty. I have to say, signing up was really simple and the premiums aren't too back. I've got close 292k miles on the clock, driving less than 1500 miles a year with $20k value paying $385 a y...

Re: door weatherstrip

That reminds me, I need to change my passenger side as well. I did the drivers side years ago.

After you were done, did you have to realign your door a bit to relieve some pressure off of the window?

Wow, those are pretty. Either BBS or BMW roundel would look great. Paul did a great job, what was the turn around time and the final dimensions on your wheels? Thanks

Re: M-Tech rear Spoilers

Those look the same. Trying to find an OEM one with the rubber in good shape is tough but yet pricey. Just glad to know there's an aftermarket one available.

M-Tech rear Spoilers

I was able to find one but for anyone that cannot locate a OEM M-Tech spoiler, there is finally an aftermarket one at a reasonable cost. Only drawback is, it's one piece vs 2 piece OEM. Looks pretty darn legit, check out the link below. https://www.classiceuroparts.com/product/boot-spoiler-for-bmw-e...

Re: Diving into an '88 M6

Welcome, being second owner is nice and also who was the original owner. Keeping it as original as possible will fetch you big bucks in the coming years.

Re: AC compressor leak ('88 M6)

Probably not. You'd have to take it take it out to rebuild it or buy a new one. if you haven't converted to the new refrigerant, it's probably the best time to do so.

Re: Replacement battery pack for cordless power tool

It's pretty vintage you'd probably end up spending around $30-40 bucks. Maybe time for a new one ($50-100). You can borrow mine (not cordless) if you need.

Hey Tommy, I don't plan on removing the rotors, I was hoping to apply something while they are still installed [-o<

Hey Bob,

You don't need to take the rotors off. Cover the caliper, use the wire brush to clean off the rust spots and spray a few thin coats.

Re: Oil Synthetic vs Regular?

I've been using Synthetic oil (usually Mobil or Valvoline) for the past 20ish years on the recommendation of my shop. They say it lubes better, better for heat temperature and break down etc but who knows. Currently I'm at 292k so I'll stick with it.

I'll disconnect the battery after driving and usually 3-4 weeks I will connect it to a charger to make sure it's fully charged.
