Re: Pre '82 Hazard switch.

This switch is actually for my car . Ron had came to the rescue sending me a couple of switches over but unfortunatley they were of the later rectangular shape . Interestingly in the link below it states that that part number fits cars to '89 . On my series one it has a circular button with a multit...

Very Nice early e24, Looks Great.
Is this Kaschmir #143 Metalic & Pergament #0110?
Yes it is . I've seen the combination on other cars but they had the black oe body stripe this being silver seems to lighten the whole car.
Thanks for your comment.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

After fitting the RC090's last autumn and finding them too eager to tramline I fitted new Kumho 225/45 's to the front . The cause was the tyres fitted were old although they still had deep tread on them. It certainly showed me how tyres deteriorate over time . The tyres had been on another car of m...

Best phone music app.

I used an old Goodmans radio cassette HU with aux in function with very good results . The difficulty I experienced was that when playing off my phone the app used had a very small control panel when in play mode on screen . This made selection and control almost impossible whilst driving resulting ...

Re: FOR SALE 1982 Series 2 635 CSi Dogleg UK

I can only echo what Rob says, that is a great car at a great price.
There are few e24's for sale with such a comprehensive build thread showing the amount and quality of work that went into it AND the genuine reason for sale.

I have to say Dave, with the greatest respect , that the poor condition of those front inner wings would prompt me to conduct a thorough strip down and detailed survey as I'd be astonished if they weren't indicative of heartbreak over the horizon. I'd personally put the purchase of shiney new things...

Re: Radio removal?

I'd suspect that your HU is fitted using one of these , s-l1600aa (Large).jpg This fits into the aperture for the radio in the dash and then the radio cassette player slides into it with an interference fit . You'll notice the stampings on the cage , once suitably bent these allow it to grip the edg...

So, I managed to get the left wing off today without breaking the black trim, but what a t**t of a job!
