Re: Alternative Front Seats - Later E24 (1987)

they are cheap and chunky!
Uh, chunky :-k

I've heard "comfort" seats called a lot of things, but chunky wasn't one of them :-?

Re: How can I get an 85 Euro 10.0CR engine to pass Cal smog?

Um, an '85 would have Motronic engine management, which I don't think permits timing adjustments :-k

I can't comment on any AFM mods, but click away, I guess, although how would you verify that it helped, without being connected to a sniffer :-?

No idea WTF is going on, but it won't let me post this photo ](*,)

I like the idea of just reproducing a transfer for just the "TEST" button, as you don't have to touch the other lights at all :roll:

Re: How can I get an 85 Euro 10.0CR engine to pass Cal smog?

This is really a tough one, as I recently had issues as well, while passing the sniff test, I have headers that are not CARB compliant, so whatever you do, make sure that the cat you use is CARB compliant :roll: But with such a high CR, you may still not even pass at the tailpipe :( I'm not sure whe...
