That will tell you the pressure rating you require. They vary from 100-130 bar.

Re: Hydro brake mystery

As a slight aside, do you know if a pump off an E34 535 would be a potential straight replacement for my current one. It's a different part no but I note that it is rated to 130bar which I think it correct for the E24? https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/select?product=P&archive=1&series=E24 Put your ...

Re: Rich running / CTS Replacement

Ensure no pressure in the cooling system. Unscrew (you shouldn't lose much coolant) and replace with new one.

Re: Rear angled Number Plate Holder

Sorry Ronnie if I have misled you! There is not an angled plate holder. The number plate screws go into plastic grommets which are fitted in the rear panel. Still can't find them in Realoem though.

Re: Polishing the Aluminum trim around grills?

Bobbo,

You can remove the alloy strips from the plastic grills. Use a pair of long needle-nose pliers to turn the holding clips 90 degrees.

It's all a bit fragile so be careful.

I used a mild cutting compound such as Brasso or T-Cut and they came up beautifully.
