Re: My aftermarket exhaust is too loud!

Does anyone have experience with these direct-fit aftermarket exhausts? Wonder if these produce an identical sound as an original rear silencer. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Auspuff-Endtopf-NEU-fur-BMW-5er-6er-528i-535i-635-CSI-82-87-Anbaut-Blende/192522652279?hash=item2cd33e8a77:g:K0oAAOSwOVhgM6sy http...

While waiting (looking for) other pistons for my M90 I had some valve cover fun this weekend, cleaned it and painted it (a bit):

Re: Help with part identification

I remember someone once posted about replacing those cable rubbers.
He had made new ones based on rubber from a newer type of BMW.
Unfortunately I can no longer find it.

The AFM cover is from a later model, but to my knowledge, they all fit [-o<

Suffice to say that trying t clean that waffle cover on the AFM is next to impossible [-X
Followed your example! Just bought a AFM cover at the local BMW dealer.

Re: My 1982 633csi

Such a great story! I love it when a car stays in the family for such a long time!

My grandfather owned many BMW's as well, among them several 3, 5 and 7 series, sadly all of them are demolished.

Re: Sean Connery’s BMW 635 is up for auction

Good price :D

What do think about this one?
Sold for $500.000, that isn't too much for this car, it is worth much more.

Check this page for the correct part numbers and buy at your local BMW dealer or the internet.

Re: My UK '84 635csi

Welcome Tom, looks great!

The windows not working is probably due to dirty (burned) switches, I had that as well.
I opened up the switches and cleaned the contacts, all good after that.
I would not advise to buy the Chinese eBay/Amazon replica switches, just clean the original ones.

My steering wheel needs some love too.
Asked a local company to rework it, price € 400,-
The cover you have is € 100,- on Amazon.

Re: Air through Air con

I have an 87 model, which is different from yours.
On my car they are situated (under the hood) on the right side just behind the headlights. And the other one is left from the suspension.
