Re: Conforti chip...thumbs up

Sounds great, checked their website and they also supply it for my engine type.
Anybody installed this chip in a (1987) US model M30B34 (182 bhp)?
Would like to know if that is as good as the one on Emac's M6.

Re: No tach

Did you remove the cluster for inspection?
Perhaps the batteries have leaked.

My tach/mpg didn't work a while ago, cause was corrosion on the metal pins that connect it to the board.
But as you are having multiple issue I would also think your board is damaged.

Completely finished the US to Euro Highline front conversion. Happy with the result.
Working on the rear now.

Re: Rear aircon unit for UK car

That's an adventurous plan!
If I were you I would look up your car and a US model from the same year on bmwfans.info and compare the components.
You can still get quite some parts at BMW, but not everything.

Re: New member - Could you help me with my cars history?

I don't think it will be that, they put is back exactly 100K, they drove only a few miles in the few days between the recordings. Well if the motor was maintained well, they can run a lot more as I have heard, so that's a good thing! Are there no maintenance sticker on the windscreen or in the doors...

Welcome here, looks nice your E24. I am not from Sweden but a lot closer to you than most guys on this forum. :-) It looks like just before the car was exported, the speedometer seems to have been turned back 100,000 miles. From 216K to 116K. :evil: Or is that a mistake in the Carfax report? Have yo...

Re: My aftermarket exhaust is too loud!

Guys, just wanted to let you know that welding in this E34 silencer worked out pretty good.
The noise is reduced by some dB's making it much better.
It still isn't a quite car, but now it is just fine, not so loud anymore. :D

Re: BMW E24 US front bumper tuck / lipo

That is also a good idea to cut the bumper instead of cutting out the top cover plate.
End result looks very good, well done!

I see you also used the Euro Highline model license plate holder. :D

Re: No start / now intermittent start 633CSi

Hoi Stephan,

Have you also tried to start the car again with the original ECU? Are you sure it's broken?
My first guess would be it's a bad contact, maybe a plug connection that makes bad contact. I would at least clean the plugs.

Re: E24_F/S 86 Air Dam

Thanks for your comment! The strange thing is that the side trims are already fitted like that (with the gap) without the bumper mounted. It is not the bumper that pushes them out. The bumper fits very smoothly actually, like it should. I can correct the bumper trims by mounting them under tension w...

Re: E24_F/S 86 Air Dam

Bob, during the conversion of the rear, I noticed that the last bit of the rear bumper trim panels do not fit properly (under the rear light). The first part is neatly in line with the body but on the last part, the body curves away from the trim panel, creating a gap. Have you noticed this too? If ...

That one looks quite good Phil. Thanks for the offer.

I am thinking of giving the decals a try, I have a few more faded prints for which he also offers decals (fog lights, cruise control).

Faded print seat adjustment switches

Has anyone managed to get the faded print of the seat adjustment switches neat again (not replacing them)?
I thought of taping it, cutting it out and spraying it. But I think that is a difficult job.

They have some great kits available.
