European Transmission in Cumming GA

Hi,
Anyone had any experience with these folks? Great website. I've got a 84 633 with auto and 180,000 miles. The trans has never been touched and I'm thinking they might be a good shop for a rebuild.

If you've got recommendations on them or other shops (Tri-state area please) please let me know.

Test the mix!

Hi All, One more tip from the peanut gallery. Buy a cheapo antifreeze tester and before you totally top off the coolant tank, test what little there is. If you don't have enough for -30 degree protection (generally 50/50) add pure anti-freeze. If you are too concentrated, add more distilled water. T...

Blaine, You're doing a great job. I've got a 1984 E24 in Bronzit Beige/Automatic. Your garage is nifty. And how do you keep the car so rust free given the tropical environment of FLA? BTW, I would have taken the hood from that trashy donor car.. I had a similar accident and I left it to the body sho...

How do they get removed from the car? I have a warped set of Beige that have no speaker as the speaker is mounted under the rear shelf.
Thanks,
Ken

Clarke CHT 243 Chain Wrench - Looking for a UK friend

I'll try HF but their tools are generally sub-par. When torque or force is required, I try to stay with brand names (snap-on, MAC, etc.) Even Craftsman has fallen way down over the years. But as you say, it's only $6 bucks.

Any UK members out there shop at Machine Mart?

Clarke Tools CHT243 filter chain wrench for brake bomb

Hi, The UK retailer, Machine Mart (www.machinemart.co.uk) has the Clarke Tools CHT243 chain wrench but will not ship to the US "for insurance reasons". It will cover a 130mm diameter item so I'm thinking it might be good to remove the brake bomb in place without a lot of dismantling. I have to measu...

Any experience with European Transmissions in Cumming GA

Am thinking about having them rebuild the ZF in my E32 (Yes, I also have an E24) and also having them do the removal and reinstallation. Said it takes about a week I guess since they order the repair parts from ZF, need to schedule lift time, rebuild time and test drive. Great website and Caroline w...

Bav Auto has been good to me

I've used BavAuto for years (84E24) (93E32) and have recently been also using AutohausAZ. You may also want to look at RockAuto as they give you a variety of alternatives (Mayle vs Lemfoerder for example) at different price points. However, since RockAuto ships parts from several locations, put ever...

Machine Shop?

Hi,
What machine shop did you use for the head work? I've got no problems with my E24 but it never hurts to have references.
Best,
Ken
