Do you have any idea as to how many of these 20 are still around? Or how many of the UK supplied cars have been exported to the Antipodes?
We used to have a guy from Oz on here who was doing a spread sheet on all the M635s. Think his name is Gary.

I'll have a look to see if I can find it.

Re: Wanted - Master Cylinder

When you replace the M/C with the 750 one you will have to make up new brake lines as it is different to the original.

I might have a spare 750 M/C will let you know.

Re: FS UK RHD M635CSi #183

Well spotted. Are they difficult to repair once they have seized up? The mechanical parts can be broken down with judicial use of penetrating oil and a gas flame. The main problem is the motor itself. When it was assembled at the manufacturers, the last thing they did was, using a very heavy pottin...

Doubt if the front will fit as the originals are handed L & R. Don’t know about the rears.

Re: M6 Brakes sticking

R/H drive cars suffer badly from this problem as the M/C is directly above the exhaust manifold.

I changed my Highline M/C to an E32 item and had to remake the pipes as the fitting was different.

I eventually had the same sticking problem with the E32 M/C. The cure was to ceramic coat the manifold.
