Re: 1988 635 Part out

Not a rush on that.
I guess lots of bubble wrap...

The car I was planning to buy that needed the side glass was sold to someone else. So never mind.

Re: 1987 635csi passenger fender quarter panel nose panel part out

Rear exhaust doesn't seem in interchange. Mine was a one-piece from front to rear and I'm told to save shipping costs, BMW went to a 2-piece...What I really need is the rear silencer that has 2 pipes in and two out.

Nice AN fittings and stainless! I didn't know they make versions with hose clamps. Is there a particular nomenclature or part numbers for them? Source?

I love Cali cars. So clean compared to our Northeast salt suckers. It even takes a few weeks of spring rains to scrub the streets to where it is safe to bring the garage queen out of hiding.

Install a new Lemforder Differential mount. My car had the original mount, cracked and rock hard. The car sat a little higher with the new mount as the rubber was not compressed.

Re: Car covers - what brand do you have ?

I have a NOAH fabric from BavAuto. Fits snug and the customer service is great. They are a sales agent for Covercraft. I also bought a Stormproof made by Coverking from Autoaccessories garage. Fit was way too snug and it didn't reinforce critical area around the bottom of the bumpers.

What about air shocks? I still run standard shocks on my 84 633 so I do not have any experience with them.

Re: Sad News, Dean Cains

Just awful news. I was going to visit him later this month as I knew he was in the hospital. My sincere condolences to his family. One of our last PMs he mentioned his list of to-do's so he clearly had a positive outlook in spite of his medical difficulties. Here's an obituary: https://newtownbee.co...

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

I wonder if a leatherique treatment would have helped the reinstall process. I have also seen a plastic shopping bag used between the leather and the padding as a "slip sheet"
