Re: E12 based performance muffler

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: 1981 635CSi - Ascot Grau

Tom, Congrats. It looks like a great find. I had forgotten you had this. Amazing it has no rust. Nice work getting it running. Looking forward to more updates. Seeing this makes me want to get back to work on my rusty early car.

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.

Re: 4x32 M635 front brake pistons

Thats an interesting product. I assume that front calipers on the M636csi are different from Series I four piston calipers.I should know this but can't remember. I just measured a piston from my 530i and it is 42x30. I see they have the later 635csi single piston kit as well. Edit: According to real...

Re: Poor old '81 635... can we rebuild her???

Nice find, hope you can save it. If your happy about the 4 piston calipers in the front you'll be glad to hear you have two piston vented rotors in the back. These cars have all kind of extras no other BMWs seem to have. Unfortunately one of them is the rust. Hows the front inner fender area? The m9...

Rare 1977 BMW 630CS Alpina B2 ?

Heres what I thought was an interesting car. I did some searching and came up with nothing on this model. I looked at a few Alpina registries. Seems like its a fake? Maybe the Alpina experts can shed some light https://www.ebay.com/itm/1977-BMW-6-Series/173597706030?hash=item286b3ac72e:g:bhAAAOSwLKN...

- Price?
- Was timing chain and guides replaced (m88/3) has single row chain?
- Compression numbers seem a little low for a 112k mile motor.
