Re: Fog Lights for 85-87 US Models FOUND

The 85-87 US models should all have the same chin spoiler that takes these.

I can confirm that these are a perfect fit except the the wiring plug which will need to be spliced.

Fog Lights for 85-87 US Models FOUND

HI All. I have found a solution for those of us with these NLA foglights. It seems that Hella did in fact use these in other cars, Specifically Early Saab 9000s and 900 Aeros. https://asaabforever.com/saab-parts/9529900-2x/ Is the full kit fior both sides. $99 I bought a pair and the lenses are a pe...

Re: Floor mat suggestions for Llama interior

HI Bob, thanks!
I was wondering about black. I'm just not a huge fan of the carpets with BMW under the heel. I feel like it should be further back and turned 90 degrees. I may go with a set of cocmats in the black/natural color combo.
Yeah i hope we can make a get together work out this fall.

Floor mat suggestions for Llama interior

I have 85 with diamondblack/llama. The original floor mats are long gone. Currently there is a set of cocomats it the car, but they are getting tired especially on the drivers side. BMW Llama mats appear to be NLA. So I'm looking for suggestions. Thanks!

Follow the link in my previous post. It will help you to diagnose the issue. It helped me when I had a vacuum leak last fall.

Re: Stranger starting issue once warmed up, please help?

When it wont start, does it fire a few cylinders and then die, or does it not start at all? Does giving a little throttle help? How does it run otherwise? and how is the idle? It could be the idle control valve staying open, or possibly another vacuum leak. Another phenomenon is a heat soak where th...

Re: TRX Tires Not So Bad

I can confirm that a new set of 390 TRX are just under $1600 when you include shipping and install as of March 2019. When I bought the car it was 1000 miles away and needed new rubber for the drive home. It was quicker, easier and overall cheaper to get a new set of TRXs than to find a good set of r...

Adding Footwell lights

As we all know the interior lighting is lackluster in the 6. I was thinking of adding some courtesy/accent lights in the front footwells. I want to use these little LEDs, one on each side. https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/led-wired-bolts/bolt-beam-12mm-led-light/1494/3433/ Ive already found ...

Re: Sunroof woes...

I am about to get into this project on my car and wondering about all the pieces. If i understand correct I need two pieces, the short one 990mm (54121870086) and the long one 1440mm (54121933203). But what about the single one 2370mm (54121972055)? is it actually too short? ECS Tuning lists them al...

Re: Leather Dash Cover

I'd be interested in something like that. My original Dash is in great shape but has two small cracks just starting. I'd like to protect it with something to prevent those from growing. I wonder how good it looks. It could look great it could look janky.
