Re: M6 Radiator shop drawing

Its interesting Jay, I've never seen an all metal e24/e28 BMW rad before. How much did you pay for that?

Re: New Leather For the '79 Euro - Pictures

Very nice job on the seats. That blue looks very nice. I'd love to see pics of the completed interior. And pics of the car. I don't think I've seen pics of your car posted on the forum previously? Or I missed them.

WTD H1 low beam lamps

I have a posting looking for these lamps in the electrical section but I thought posting here may be more appropriate. I'm looking for E code H1 LOW BEAM only LHD lamps. I think most or some e24s in Europe came with these lamps VS the H4 low/high. I need them in my attempt to install a wash/wipe sys...

WTB Hella H1 Low beam lamps

Ok, so I'm on the hunt for something I didn't even really know existed until recently. H1 low beam headlamps. I have H4s in my car currently but just picked up most of a wash/wipe system for the car. The H4s stick out from the chrome ring and will make it hard if not impossible for the wiper to wipe...

Re: G265 Sheet Metal Shifter looks weird

From your photo I actually think you have those blocks oriented incorrectly. These two sheet metal consoles I have from 265/6 trannies are just as they came off the transmissions. They look to be set up oppositely. Maybe it makes no difference at all. Maybe enough difference to cause some issue. Jus...

Its very interesting and unusual from what I've seen Bobbo. I have an LSD with the S stamped but it still has all the other numbers denoting ratio. Thats the only spot I've seen stampings so I wouldn't know where else to look. I wonder, have you confirmed the actually ration by turning the input sha...

Re: Sideloader Ratios

Bobbo, Thx for the reply. Where is this "40" stamped on the case? I've never heard of this before I thought it was just stamped for example: 11 40 . Meaning 40 Divided by 11 = 3.6363 . or 3.64 . I've not heard of the % of lockup being stamped on the outside of case. I also thought the standard lock ...

Sideloader Ratios

I am in a discussion with several fellow parts hoarders. Our topic is 3.25 Open sideloader diffs. This unit came from an e9 csi. I'm not real familiar with e9s but I assume this diff is the same sideloader that comes in e3s, e12s, and early e24s. The question is: Is the 3.25 ratio open SL found in o...

Very nice looking car. More pics please. Strange to see the owner has only driven it 400 miles in 9 years. Thats a lot of willpower. I think I'd be putting on 400 miles a week. Resale value be damned

I'm hoping to find some series 1 Euro 635csi down pipes. I have been collecting exhaust parts for my e12. These down pipes are 50mm and according to realoem were used on e12 based euro 635s and e12 M535i's. I have a new front muffler and rear muffler bought from the dealer. I'm missing the down pipe...

Re: 1980 635CSI Euro Spec hennarot all original 53k miles

Very, Very nice car. From the slim description, I would say minimum $15K. Perhaps much more. I would assume it needs a lot of replacement of rubber parts, brakes, hoses, etc etc. More pics would help. Great car. Love the color.

Interesting, Any other details on the cutting down the middle and flipping? Or more pics of the process? I'm looking at doing something similar to a euro e24 BMW muffler so the exit pipes will line up properly with the e12 rear valence cutout. Its either that or make a new cut out in the valence. Al...

Re: 1985 M635CSi

Those are indeed shockingly low low numbers of these cars still on the road in the UK. Its a wonder they haven't become much more valuable there given the rarity. Makes me curious to find out how many are still alive in NA. Not sure if thats info that is even known.
