Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Pretty sure it was imported in 78, so pretty much straight from the UK. Lived in Qld form the 90s. It's got about 132k on it. Confirmed black 086. From the images looks like it's been pretty well cared for. However, with no service history, dodgy head its starting to become too much of a risk. I gue...

Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Thanks GRSHRK,

Only under bonnet shots I have are these to date. When I finally look at the car (It's about 1000k away) I'll take some better shots.

Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Thanks Shipper, completely agree. I really can't see this head lasting another round. For an M30B35, assume would you need to change the computer and ancillaries to a the later model? I'm conflicted, my white 6er is Addam's old car, great motor. I would love a black car (looks like with a dud motor)...

Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Update. Owner has removed head due to overheating, blown gasket. Sounds like the second time the heads been off. Hasn’t been driven very often so sounds like endemic issue. Not filling me with confidence. Only value of the car is the black body I think. Will take a look at it anyway but won’t be for...

Can anyone identify these seats? 1978 633csi British Model

HI there, I'm looking to identify these seats/trim. They're from a 1978 633csi UK spec originally auto - now in Australia - Vin search shows up nothing. Not sure if they're BMW, Recaro or Scheel or something else. Are they original spec? Trim looks like cloth. Both front and back trim match. Any hel...

From Andreas at BMW classic. The BMW 633CSi rhd Automatic VIN 4391277 was manufactured on March 2nd, 1978 and delivered on March 8th, 1978 to the importer BMW Concessionaires G.B. Ltd. The original colour was Black, paint code 086. At this time BMW used only seven-digit VIN's so there's no longer ve...

Great, thanks Daz, so yours is an 86 Schwarz? Aussie delivered? That must be pretty rare. One of the reasons I chasing this one is because of the colour, but if there's a couple of later model Schwarz I could always hold out..will know better when I have a look in person...

Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Update: Rego drama: Looks like it's a private import - no compliance plate - Apparently they weren't required prior to 89 I think so the owner is speaking to Canberra trying to get paperwork to register in NSW - haven't seen the car yet, was hoping to Friday but looks like it will be next week.

Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Great, thanks Shipper I punched in the vin 4391277 to your decoder and got e24 code 5242...? I've pretty much given up on it being officially associated with the team, other than some stories. From my research it is Schwarz and hasn't been resprayed. Not sure about originality of the seats and not s...

Re: JPS 633csi Special Order - Can anyone verify?

Thanks Daz and Shipper: Update, spoken to Addam at BA and also Stewart from JPS registry who spoke to Pip...not one of their cars. Also seems that no records were kept of any special dealer orders on Schwarz. My feeling is also that Schwarz is very rare. 78 feels too early for any JPS liveried cars....

IMG_5952.JPG IMG_5950.JPG Hi all, doing some sleuthing on the JPS road going cars of the 80s. Seems there was no records kept of private orders of 635s solid Schwarz cars created in JPS livery. There was a run of official numbered E21s. This one is up for sale in QLD. 
Here’s the story so far:

Buffalo vs Napa anthracite leather

Hi all, I need your opinion. I recently swapped my black sports leather passenger seat to the drivers side, as the existing drivers seat was rooted. I replaced the passengers with a buffalo spare seat I had. So all the seats work well, but the buffalo clearly stands out as different. I now have the ...

Re: Begging for help! - A/C blower

Hi Toby, how did you go resolving your problem? It's been hell in Sydney this year - 40 degrees tomorrow and my air con is a mess. Can I ask where you had yours fixed and were you happy with the service? - Guide on price would also be useful if you're willing to share!

Cheers
