Re: FS UK RHD M635CSi #109

I was tracking this one from the the outset with a view to owning it - hence my decision not to post details on the forum 😉. Did anybody else bid on it????? Yes, it is #109. Bought sight unseen on eBay, but vendor says the engine runs OK and Just needs new rotor arm & distributor which he will supp...

Re: Gas leak?

Gently ease that rubber surround up and off the filler neck. I say gently as if you are too rough you will crack the filler neck. Once it is off you will see the top of the tank, the filler neck to the tank and the breather connections - it'll be obvious where the leak is. Edit to add; while the rub...

Re: UK (Glasgow) M635CSi for sale 1987, low mileage.

Comfort seats are rare in an M635 but not unknown, as are cars without the wheel arch extensions because they were not ordered with the 415TRX wheels - some cars with the 390TRX wheels were not fitted with the extensions, I saw a black/pearl biege one in Leeds many years ago.

Re: M88 M635 throttle cable wanted

I have fitted the alternative cable and it works perfectly. The old cable was repaired and I have it as a spare. It looks as good as new so it seems and throttle cable should be able to replace the cable and sheath with the fittings - although it will be so much easier if it hasn't actually snapped ...

Re: UK (Glasgow) M635CSi for sale 1987, low mileage.

I think the absolute minimum spend would be well over £10k even if you stripped the car yourself; by the time you factor in rust removal, full prep and a full respray, as well as all the bits and pieces of trim that you have to replace to do all that, and add a tiny fighting fund for the oily and el...

Good luck with the conversion - I'm glad Ron and Rob managed to get the parts to you somehow. I have a 1982 series 2 car with the 3 speed auto and I swore when I bought it that when the gearbox went wrong I would swop it out for a manual - that was over 25 years ago and the gearbox is still as silky...

Re: Underbonnet (hood) water deflectors.

I was looking at the drivers side of my RHD M635 the other day. There is no protection for the intensive water pump or large cable grommet, and simply putting an mirror image of the nearside type would do very little to provide protection. If I get time and I'm bored I might wander out to my garage ...

If a solution to this is found then would be interested in obtaining a spare 'just in case'.

What is the purpose of the part?
It deflects the water from falling directly onto the rubber grommets where the large cable looms come through from the cabin into the fan/wiper/ABS ECU scuttle area.

Short answer is yes it fits. Slightly longer answer is that there is an additional plastic bracket between the first hook and the white rubber grommet you see in the above picture - once you have CAREFULLY (you do not want to damage the plastic sheathed actual throttle cable) cut that off it fits as...

Post in the 'Wanted' section on the forum or scour ebay; just be aware that there are slight differences between the pre-1987 and post-1987 cars due to the different size bumpers, hence different part numbers too. IIRC, they are NLA from BMW.
