Re: Alternative Front Seats - Later E24 (1987)

I have seen the E34 armrests in E30's and E28's. There are adapters available to make them fit.

The AFM cover is from a later model, but to my knowledge, they all fit [-o<

Suffice to say that trying t clean that waffle cover on the AFM is next to impossible [-X
Followed your example! Just bought a AFM cover at the local BMW dealer.

Re: My 1982 633csi

Such a great story! I love it when a car stays in the family for such a long time!

My grandfather owned many BMW's as well, among them several 3, 5 and 7 series, sadly all of them are demolished.

Re: Alternative Front Seats - Later E24 (1987)

I would buy a E24 comfort seat for the time being, these are not expensive and a direct fit.

Re: Sean Connery’s BMW 635 is up for auction

Good price :D

What do think about this one?
Sold for $500.000, that isn't too much for this car, it is worth much more.

Check this page for the correct part numbers and buy at your local BMW dealer or the internet.

I think you need part no. 62111368299

Re: My UK '84 635csi

Welcome Tom, looks great!

The windows not working is probably due to dirty (burned) switches, I had that as well.
I opened up the switches and cleaned the contacts, all good after that.
I would not advise to buy the Chinese eBay/Amazon replica switches, just clean the original ones.

Re: Steering wheel refurbishment

Wow, that looks good! :D
My steering wheel needs some love too.
Asked a local company to rework it, price € 400,-
The cover you have is € 100,- on Amazon.
Your photo convinced me to buy the cover. =D>

Re: Air through Air con

I have an 87 model, which is different from yours.
On my car they are situated (under the hood) on the right side just behind the headlights. And the other one is left from the suspension.

Conversion to ellipsoid headlights

I am converting to ellipsoid headlights.
Now I noticed that the headlight hits a piece of metal frame.
Does anyone know how this is constructed in the later types (1988/1989) E24? There must be more space.

Check the filling nipples on your car, are they R134a, like on the photos, or R12?
Just Google the nipples and you will see the difference.

Re: BBS RC090 finish selection opinion

I would go for the all silver finish of the wheels, looks fantastic.

And the area around the license plate looks better in black in my opinion, but that is a matter of taste.
