New Owner 1985 635CSI

Post by 69BMW2002NH » Tue Dec 05, 2017 10:12 pm

I just bought a 1985 635CSI Auto. It's in great condition, but currently only goes in reverse, and the tail lights are deteriorated.
I'm looking for a new trans if I can't get this one going so if you know anyone in New England with a non-EH trans for sale, please let me know.

Also wondering, can I get regular tires for the metric wheels? Are there any options that don't cost an arm and a leg?

You'll have to either buy new Metric tires ($$$$), or a set of regular (inch) wheels and tires. I'd practically guarantee you can get a nice used set of wheels and a new set of tires for less than just the set of Metric tires by themselves.

Hey there 69BMW2002NH, welcome aboard :shock:

Ken is correct about mounting any tires on TRX wheels other than TRX, now costing an arm and a leg [-X

As a board moderator, I am going to move your post to the saloon where intros usually take place =D>

I would suggest using the correct forums for your questions, "cars and parts wanted" for instance, regarding your hunt for a slushbox :-k

Once again, welcome to the madness \:D/

I saw this car for sale locally and was pretty interested in it as a project to flip, I'm glad it stayed somewhat nearby. I may have a 4HP22 Trans for sale in the next few weeks if you're interested, since I'll finally be starting my 5-speed swap. Feel free to get in touch!
