Rear ABS Sensors!! Oh MY!

Hello fellow crazies!

Ivo Christov, who is in The Netherlands, has contracted with a company in china and is producing ABS sensors for both the front AND rear to fit our automobiles. (type II E24's at this point) I know Ivo and he's an honest guy who is working hard to serve the E28/E24 community. Here is a link: Oh, I have ZERO stake in this enterprise. Just passing along the info:

Keep the shiny side UP

Rears are only for pre’86 cars.

That's a great piece of info. Phillip. All the sensors are getting harder to find, and more expensive to boot.

I wonder if we might want to make a sticky with exactly this kind of unique supplier information in the parts for sale section. Maybe we could submit a vendor who has that one or two hard to find parts, and once verified that info. is added to a sticky in the announcements area.

Much as I hate to accept it, sometimes a part really is prone to failure because of design, or duty cycle, so I'm thinking the posts would probably be best off locked. Only verified purchasers of that part could submit additional info. for things like quality, compatibility or longevity of the part. It would really function more like a long, moderated, living "review" that we could all see evolve. That way, each post would be much more focused, so that we know where to source that one really hard to find part, and have a good expectation about what we are getting. There's few worse feelings than crossing your fingers when ordering something unusual from a new vendor, especially when it's a really expensive part. I suppose the Useful Links forum kind of does this already, but it's pretty big and info. can become challenging to find with so much to dig through.

Well, that's a lot more than two cents of thoughts I suppose. At any rate, thanks for sharing Phillip.

Hey Jose!

I'm just happy to be of service to the community. I know I need new ones and those connectors get old, brittle and will break if you look at them cross-eyed. He apparently has plans to include the earlier and later model types if these are well received, so there's that.

Keep BIG COUPE ALIVE!!

still waiting on my set from Ivo. they are held up in US customs at the moment. will be nice to have ABS again, as driving without them provides a bit of a sphincter pucker factor.
