Re: Speedo signal lost

Speedo sensor wiring goes down the inside of the rhd drivers sill under the carpet, under the rear right hand seat and out from under the right hand seat along with the fuel pump wiring.

Re: Window Drop Down on door opening

I suspect use the heated door lock switch to engage a pcb circuit or short time relay (circa 0.25 secs) to drop the window a fraction and then use a contact on the the interior light relay going off to engage a similar pcb/short term hold relay to push the window back up for just over that length of...

It would also be worth posting this in the 'Wanted' forum Section rather than 'Tech info'. Perhaps a Mod could move it?

Re: Late Highline Alpina front spoiler options

Original was not fibreglass. It was the same material as the BMW E24 spoilers, plastic injection moulded.

You could try Alpina for one, they sold them as aftermarket items for non-Alpina cars.

Problem SOLVED: I put a rebuilt main circuit board in that a fellow in the Netherlands was selling and voila - the car now turns off with the key. The right turn signal panel light work also now. And now on to fix the fan blower switch that runs on high only for heat or AC. Which main circuit board...

Re: Re:

The rarest would be an '88/'89 (m30b35) 5 speed as they didn't make many of those 635's, most were highline autos. More rare are the alpina and hartge cars (technically they were tuned 635's). Do you know how many 5 speed highline's they made? Almost impossible to tell really as the chassis numbers...

Yes Agree Sharky What about the B2 as well as they where called Alpina 630CS. B9 would as you say have to be one of the rarest of them for sure. JPS E24 very rare also, its so hard but at the end of the day soon all our daily E24s will become rare LOL. Neither the E24 B8 or E24 B2 are listed as Pro...

Re: Rarest 635 and why.

I'm happy to be corrected but Alpina B8 E24's are not recognised by Alpina as 'Production cars' as they were conversions carried out to previously driven customers cars, not factory conversions on a brand new chassis. The rarest of all Production Alpina's is generally recognised to be an E24 though,...
