Re: Group A suspension some still avail

I want to contact them and find out if this can be a "fast road" set-up with the right damper valving and spring rates. I have a race car and I know that I don't want my sharks to ride like a race car.

Sancouci: It look forward to meeting you this winter. I have a nice toy shop with a lift. I won't be doing much of the restoration on the M6. it was owned by a body shop owner who will be completing the body work.

Re: another new guy

I purchased a '85 635CSi on Ebay. it was located less than two miles from my shop.

Re: Help with a Ebay Purchase In The States

Hi: I'm a newbie to this site, but I can help. I will be passing through Orlando soon. I have plenty of space to pick them up and store them for you. I live in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Send me a message if you would like assistance. I have two E24 and love this site.
