Re: E24 Front Valance and Rear Spoiler

Doing a World bumper conversion. Have my 86 air dam for sale. On my car for the 31 years I've owned it. Painted twice, never repaired. The paint cracks showing in the photos are from flexing when loaded on the flatbed, I blew the head gasket @ WGI. Complete with fogs, brackets and temp sensor probe....

Re: Adding Footwell lights

Hi Warner, You're correct. If you tie into the door switches they'll go on only with the door. The only way that I know of is to tie them into the dome light. The wiring along the headliner and down the A pillars will be a pain but doable. I did it for an added dome light in between the sun visors. ...

Re: Brake help needed

Rotors are very affordable these days that it doesn't pay to have them turned down.
As far as pads go, if your not going to track the car--any oem spec pads should do very nicely
as long as you don't go el-cheapo.

Re: Is it a "L"

It should have the "L6" on the right side of trunk lid.

Re: Clutch time + ??

Use ATF in your trans not gear oil.
The heavier gear oil will be too thick even when hot to
slow down the synchros when downshifting.

It's labeled on the parts page.

Re: Which M635CSi do you prefer. S2-based or Highline?

I disagree, I have an 86 US 635 that I converted to World Bumpers.
The fog light design just looks better to me.

Re: 1988 635csi 5-speed swap.

Not necessary to swap out the TPS. Auto has 5 wires the manual has 3. Look @ pgs 1360-2 & 1360-3. Auto trans to manual. The ecu still gets throttle position from the "VL" wires. I think that once the harness is no longer connected to the auto box the extra wires from the TPS are voided. The TPS to t...

Re: 1988 635csi 5-speed swap.

We left the AT harness in place and jumped the NS switch,
connected the back up light harness.

I'll alert Jody about your post. He's a wiz on doing the swap.
