Re: Alternative front seats.

.......my head would still brush the sunroof underside on the car . An acquaintance of mine, being 6ft.3", went to the trouble of buying a non-sunroof car and swapping the body with his sunroof equipped car to gain a couple of inches extra headroom!!! Would almost have been easier to section 3 inch...

Re: Alternative front seats.

Hello Rob, thanks for that info . I googled and googled and eventually found photos of the frames on an e36 and considered doing the same .
My concern is that even with a reduction of 15mm my head would still brush the sunroof underside on the car .

Re: Sport seat leather redo

Impressive and very commendable result.
A list of materials used, sequence and equipment used would be great in fact you should do a proper "how to " sticky for this.
How durable is the crack filler ?

Re: Electrifying my '85 635CSi Euro

Hi Don, I understand where you are coming from. But driving electric is not always about saving the planet. True, I have solar panels on my garage that will charge my car emissions free (at no additional cost to me), and I can charge at work (again for "free"), but driving electric also has many ot...

Re: Alternative front seats.

Sorry , a common UK saying. I have discounted the idea after getting some feedback from another site. The E36 seats can be made to fit , quite easily I believe , but their design means that the true seat height is higher than the E24 comfort or sport seat. The guy who explained this to me had fitted...

Alternative front seats.

Mulling over some winter projects and one is the consideration of changing the original comfort seats for something more....well, comfortable ! The price and availability of a pair of sport seats in parchment for my series one could be summed up by "too high and too low ". E30 items are the same now...

If you want to display such a rare thing and not tuck it away out of sight then self adhesive velcro strip allows you to attach it to the boot ( trunk ) trim wherever you wish.

Re: 5 e24’s up for Auction 2nd November uk

Thanks for the price info! Lot62 seems to be a Landy, hence £5200 possibly refers to Lot68's white shark: https://whitelabel-2.globalauctionplatform.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/ncm/catalogue-id-ncm-au10227/lot-db89ace3-d979-4c2c-b409-aae401589145 Thats correct, the white e24 was lot 68 , my mistak...

Re: UK M635CSi #348 for auction 09/11/2019 @ NEC

I'll have to find some old pre digital photos to confirm but I "think" this car was owned by the mother of the owners of a very exclusive car sales and storage facility just south of Cambridge. I used their storage facility for my then car for a few years and there were two E24's in this colour in t...

Thanks, they have the one for the right side, but not the left. Im not sure its the exact same part, but maybe it can be altered enough to fit.
Sorry, but it's a different pressing entirely.

Re: Front bumper rubbers

Inside the rubber is a channel that retains the square shallow headed bolts . If the bolts are very rusty they can lose their square head and therefore turn in the captive channel thus requiring the nut side of the bolt on the other side of the bumper to be cut off . The channel can also swell and d...

Sold. £6,100. Unbelieveable :shock:
I wonder if the buyer will conclude the sale ?
That's an astounding amount of money for what is a very poor example requiring some serious amount of work.
Is this really what they are worth in the UK now ....?
