Re: New to me 1988 M6

We love those wide open spaces. It's more like lawn envy across neighborhoods, interrupted by rolling automotive art.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

With me, it is more an issue of avoiding the winter salt bath as we use a lot on the roads. It takes some serious rain to cleanse the street so that my car doesn't rot away.

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

In the 50's yesterday and the battery came off the winter maintainer. She started right up and the temp stayed at the midpoint. New the real work begins.

Re: Cloth Interior Cleaner?

I've used Blue Coral upholstery cleaner. The key is to rinse and use a soft brush to minimize the pilling of the nap. More like blot rather than brush. Worst was my mom's car and she was a heavy smoker. Ugh.

Re: 1982 CSi Resto

Because nearly all of the chrome has been keyed to help the paint stick to it I'm having to replace it - never paint chrome! I had hoped that the rear bumper would be retrievable but sadly someone has had a go with a sander. These parts almost look very good until you look carefully - if re-chromed...

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

I looked longingly at my Garage Queen and the mid-30's temp and hope it warms up soon. I've got some "flat on my back" work to do: diff mount, holey muff and busted pitman arm to attend to.

Re: New member to the forum.

I've got some of the white fog at the bottom of the windshield. It is either delamination or deterioration of the inter-glass layer. Unless it spreads or is an impediment to a state inspection, just leave it alone.

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.

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

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.
