Re: Manual Sport Seats-e28 cars

You're welcome, but you do know that if you install E28 front seats, you won't be able to access the rear seats :-k

Not that anybody sits back there #-o

Re: Manual Sport Seats

Billy, not sure what year you are looking for, but for the early E12 chassis, you might want to try Aardvarc Racing, Dave Varco restores and sells the very nice E21 factory Recaro's =D> I picked up a set of these quite some time ago, and while I'll admit that they were a bit pricy, I have never regr...

Re: Tell us what type of motor oil you prefer?

I've been using both Castrol GTX and Pennzoil over the years, 20W50, of course, the M30's really need this weight of oil, specifically in warmer climates, running 10W40 weight in colder climates would be best, I used to do that as well, back in my "NJ" days :roll: Fritz, if you're only putting 5 qua...

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

So, while I was having some fab work done, I decided to use this new (to me) "resource" to make a sheetmetal panel for the front license plate filler panel, one that I could bolt on, and thus remove as well, if/when the "men in blue" stop me again :-({|= The pix show how he made this panel, with stu...

Wow, that is restrictive, always wondered what the stock exhaust looked like :-k With only one downpipe, what do you have for an exhaust manifold :-?

Sunday, July 22nd in the car show in Saratoga CA, white 89 with the license plate "R89SHRK", owner is John Motroni from SF :-k

Hmm, well, that does sound weird :-k

Pretty sure you have the correct ratios, however =D>

US M6 = 3.91
Euro M635 = 3.73

ldc, I would think that you are going to foul the struts up front with 245's [-X

No problems out back, however, where you can install steamrollers without issues =D>

Presuming these wheels are 8" wide with ET20 offset, the correct tire size would be 235/45's [-o<
