I had mine redone in leather to match the interior.
I know it's not a perfect match, but I'm colorblind and
it looks good to me.

Re: Alternative Front Seats - Later E24 (1987)

Can those seats fold down to get into the back?

I didn't realize that manual recliners are more difficult to

Re: Series one 265/6 gearbox x member .

For a mid year 1981 looks like the one on the right.

Re: Wheels that I hope will fit

I think 18 just passes the threshold of too modern for this body style.

16 or 17 is just right IMO. With Vogtland lowered springs.

Re: Anyone Ever Bought A Fiberglass or CF Hood from DTM Fiberwerkz?

+1 on what Jose said, same here in New York State.

Just an fyi. If you go the fiber route the hood dampers may put to

much pressure on the hood when closing and crack it where they attach.

Re: I'll Be Busy For a While - 1979 Euro 635CSi (M90 Powered)

Yes, your right the plastic broke and the windshield did crack along with the bent trim that had to be replaced when my 6 was repainted. My daughters 72 Buick Skylark was painted by the seller with the detail masked and you can see an edge on everywhere it was masked. I hope your guy does a better j...

Re: Instrument cluster mph jumping slightly. 635 csi

Not knowing what year, US -Euro if it's the early cable drive-most likely the cable. If it's electronic most likely the pulse generator has metal filings on the magnetic tip confusing the signal. Remove and clean the generator and things should go back to normal until it gets clogged again. I sugges...

Wow NLA, that sucks. I purchased the parts in 2018.

Re: Converting my 87 to world bumpers I need a lower air damn.

I looked for over 3 years to complete my swap, finally ordered everything
new from BMW. Air dam, brackets, fogs, bolts.

Sharkfan

You still don't get it--

"but deleting discussions on Donald Trump is exactly what he and his supporters want because it removes facts from the equation."

This is what we're talking about. You just demonized 75 million Americans because they don't see your facts.
