Re: BMW Metric Wheels with Tyres and Spare

Would, by any chance, the deflating spare be the one positioned in the middle of the 5 stack photo?

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.

Re: My L6

Hey Jono, Forgive me if I am stating the obvious and you know this already, (because it took me a while to figure out), but are you aware that the hood light only works when your headlights are switched on? Also, I’d be interested to know a little more about the mats you sourced in Germany. Take car...

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...

Re: 1988 BMW M635 CSi Highline @ CCA

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.

FS - UK RHD M635CSi #305

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...

Re: Legends of the Autobahn - Monterey car week

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.

Nice looking car that. I agree with Pod, and would also suggest Car & Classic. Not only does it cost nothing but seems to attract more genuine private buyers and enthusiasts. I refuse to advertise a car on eBay anymore as I do have other things to occupy myself with other than responding to knuckle-...

Coming up at an ACA auction in August is number 322 (Registration D793BGM). Alpine White with Black interior and a M Technic body-kit.

Re: M653CSI / M6 BBS Split Rim Info / pictures?

Rob - The RS007s had a machined finish (albeit a pretty damned refelctive one) rather than a full mirror polished finish to the rims.
They were not painted.
