Re: power steering hoses

A lot of those pipes are NLA... Unless an M6 is different then an CSI, I was able to get all new hoses, thru either BMW or aftermarket for my '88 a year ago.. If nothing else you can get a hose shop to make you some up... the only one that will be an issue is the one with the restictor in it, nobod...

Re: Seeking advice: 1983 633csi

Just for a reference, I payed $6250 for an '88 with 100k on it, with no rust, in Dayton about 3 years ago. Had extensive maintenance records. Overal condition similar or better than what you described...Came with a bunch of extras..That price was probably on the high side of things at the time, but ...

I bought one of these from Bert a couple of years ago, works like a charm.... run a large Bosch fiter on it ( cant remember the number).... larger filter, probably better filteration and easier to change.... higly recommend one..
