I saw this one and thought it looked very tidy; good original straight bodywork, black leather genuine recaro's with rear headrests; slap on some 17 inch Alpina replicas and you've got a tidy runner.

Just my ten pence worth,

Iain,

I loved this sentiment;
Be wary of strong drink, it can make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss.



I laughed my a** off; I guess it got me just right :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :twisted:

Apologies to 6 owning tax collectors, of course :shock:

New Six Keyring

These new six keyrings are cheaper than 18GBP if you buy direct at your local dealer; I think 14 GBP; I've had mine for months and it's lovely.

A full music selection..........

My good lady bought an Ipod last year, 20mb, but never got round to putting much more than 200-300 songs on it from her work lappie (our home PC was a wind-up model from the dark ages). But to play the tunes in the car(s) we bought one of those cheappie-cheap cassette insert things with a jack plug ...

Hi all, I thought this'd be easy but as you get to eight or nine songs you realise how many tunes you've missed; :shock: This is the list of the tunes I can't get out of my head - as you can see, some have been there an awfully long time, and they may not really mix well together; but find me an ope...

Sensitive to fuel pressure.....

Hi guys, Just thought I'd share an experience with you. I'd taken my late '82 (E28 based) 635 to my friendly mechanics for upper control arm changes' and a pre-winter waxoyl. Whilst underneath they noticed a slight weep from the fuel pipe - I don't know whether supply or return - but nothing that wa...

Centre console pulled out

Hi Mountain Shark,

How do you get the centre console out; I've always wanted/needed to but never been able to figure it out; please can you drop me some tips; either PM/e-mail or on the board.

Many, many thanks in advance;

Self levelling suspension

I read somewhere that SLS was standard on US cars and an option for other markets.

Dave, that Highline hasn't got; and I expect the majority of UK cars won't have.

BTW, spark plugs are Champion double copper; always used 'em; never had a problem.

Bentley Manual

The Bentley Manual often discussed is actually for the E28 five series, sadly it can't help out owners of the E12 based early 6 series but it is useful for owners of post late-1982 cars. You can get it in the uk; http://www.motormec.co.uk/e28.html and most folks say it's pretty useful - I've got one...

You're right about this community; I'd been and tried other boards/forums before and was more than a little put off by the animosity and bitching that sometimes went on. I found this place a few months back and it seems to be full of a bunch of guys who are genuinely interested in their own 6'ers an...

The '89 Highline....

Dave,

I'm starting to really miss it :(

Hope you get on top of it and give it the good home it needed.

BTW, the Blue 635 wouldn't start this morning :shock: probably missing it's buddy.

My wife has vetoed any new purchases till the new year :roll:

Dave,

The Highline needed a good and caring home, and with the two 6'ers I have it was a lacking some love and attention - hope it suits your drive. Plus, I can't post any pics of mine 'til somone shows me how ??

Too much memory...............

Hi, I think mine is a 2001 edition, and I don't think that my having XP is the problem - just the amount of memory. Anything over 512Mb sends a double seven - if anyone has over 512MB of memory and can run the repair manual CD - I'd try a copy of that.

Run time error '2004'

Hi guys, After a little investigation I've answered my own problem; Run time error '2004' is a Windows XP way of saying you have too much memory for older programs. The short dumbed-down explaination is that there is a Windows sub-set program which manages memory that was never envisaged to have to ...

I agree with Ron about the master cylinder - no need to upgrade. In terms of the brake fluid, take care. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but Dot 4 and Dot 5 are incompatible and changing to Dot 5 may require a whole range of seals to be changed, a significant work package. Dot 5.1 is compatib...

But I wouldn't bother with the Chilton 1970-1988 manual - too little information for too big a range of cars. Happy engineering. Ke...
