Re: "M" #464 in UK.

#464 is available once again at a forthcoming Barons Auction on December 11th, with a guide price of £11k - £14k


Doesn't appear to have been used much since it last surfaced.

No. 144 went into the auction at £22k - but didn't fetch any bids and passed through unsold.

Re: UK M635CSi #144 for auction with CCA in December est, £28-32k

That thread on #144 makes for interesting reading, as does a trawl through Bispal's posts, which identify the trials and tribulations he endured with this car (e.g. draughty dashboard!). I have not seen it, but did speak of it to the chief mechanic shortly after it went through the workshop at 4Star...

Re: Custom TRX Wheels

This adaptation of a "bottle cap" to a split rim is becoming popular now, and I have to say I think they look fantastic. A perfect fusion of originality and a contemporary custom look.


Nice work, fella.

Re: 17" BBS RS Staggered WANTED!!!

I myself underwent a similar, and extensive search a couple of years back, with very little success. The set up you are looking for is going to be extremely hard to find in the UK. Therefore may I suggest two ebay sellers who are Hungary based? Names are "cs9_felgen" and "rarewheels2015". Both are h...

Re: FS - UK RHD M635CSi #126

I cannot take any credit, OzBmwnut. A kindly member of “Aussie Sharks - E24” (which presumably is the group you belong to) made mention of this car to me. The rest was easy. No doubt the presence of #126 in Australia will be announced more vocally in the not too distant future. My guess is that a bu...

Re: My L6

English comic actor Terry—Thomas. Prolific in 50’s& 60’s playing his trademark stereotypical upper-middle-class rogue/bounder/cad character.

In the 70’s he found great success in the States, in movies, commercials, chat shows etc.

I’d really appreciate a picture of your mats if you would be so kind.

Pistonheads Article - 635CSi en France.

Thankfully, forum member "scrof" and UK motoring journalist Alex Robbins has been at it again, posting another article on Pistonheads featuring his 635CSi. This time he's been touring France, and thoroughly enjoying himself and the car by the sound of things. I never knew about Paul Bracq's place in...

David "Munchy" Muench's car. Well documented on here.

He posted a few months back that he was looking to part ways with this car. Looks as though he's left the forum also.

Number 305, Registration number C41BLJ, has come up for sale. I recognise this car from James Taylor's book, "Original BMW M Series" Looks nice enough from the photos, and I'm rather liking the cloth upholstery which appears to be in pretty decent condition. https://www.classicandsportscar.com/class...

I’m travelling over to Monterey for car week once again this year. Bringing a car from London is obviously a problem, so apologies in advance for not arriving in my E24. Nonetheless I shall try my very best to at least meet with you chaps if you’re in the area, and put some faces to some names.

Re: UK M635CSi #500 fs on eBay

Good spot. Too coincidental to be anything else, surely.

I note also that the owner put this car up for sale just over two years ago - again on eBay. Asking price then was £25k.

BBS RS 007 Metric 3 piece wheels

No affiliation, but if any of you stateside chaps are looking for the ultimate originality for your Euro M635, these RS 007s might be of interest.

Looks as though they come with some super-rare Michelin TRX Winter tyres.
