Re: 1988 635 - kinda scam victim here.. but still ok

Wow, looks like a nice and neat car, at least on those photos :o I did something similar buying a car from a dealer over the internet, but I did not do any checks at all on it :shock: :-k :oops: My '89 Highline came from Carlisle, Pennsylvania and I expected some rust of course, perhaps some of the ...

Re: September 1988 build. Purchased 2006

I agree with GRNSHRK, the shadowline is perfect =D> . I think, I'll do that for mine sooner or later as well, the grey color I have already :lol:
Except for the steering wheel being on the wrong side, this is my preferred sixer look.

About the stickers, they're made of vinyl and easily removed at will. They don't leave any residue. Once I get tired of them, they're gone 8-[

Re: Location.

Well, taking advantage of this post, is there by any chance someone in this forum from or around El Paso, TX? Just asking, since I'm kind of the only one from northern Mexico, but from the most northern border to the US (to be precise, just across the "mighty" Rio Grande :lol: )

Just checking... :-"

Re: Washed, waxed and with new shoes

Yep, they are 8", I'm running on 225/50 R16 Kumho's and I'm very pleased with ride. Since I'm hardly driving any faster than 80mph, the handling and performance is quite OK for me.

Re: Style 5 Rims 16x8 ET 23

Well, this last weekend I've put on my tires on the new (used) rims and they look nice as expected. \:D/
I also did add the 1/4" spacers in the front wheels only, even though they did not seem to rub or anything, but it looked kind of right at the edge :roll: .

My shop tech. has just added it to my sixer and it works very well. If it fails, I'm just back to a non-working A/C #-o , but so far it's freezing cool. \:D/

Air Condition Gas Type

OK, here I go again hoping someone can help me out with my ignorance when it comes to A/C leaks and gas types. A year ago I checked the A/C in my '89 sixer which was working well, compressor blowing fairly cold air \:D/ This year (which is one of the hottest ever here in northern MX) just warm air i...

Re: Style 5 Rims 16x8 ET 23

Are these a direct swap without any modifications such as spacers for example? I understand these are BMW made rims and should fit one of their models, just want to make sure...thanks for any input.

Currently I'm using Kumho's and I'm happy with their performance.

Just wondering what you guys think about this? Based on his way of promoting himself, Trump seems to be unlikely, but then again so was the Brexit :shock: I as an outsider, still wonder how a country of +300 million people could end up with 2 candidates of such a questionable "quality".
