Manual E24

Recommended Posts

The M5 wheels are just plain wrong. 

That colour is a bit elderly so to speak but with the right wheels and kit, you could really set it off.

Agree about the wheels, possibly it needs a bit more low to pull off that size of wheel? Certainly a lot of potential in this car, interior is a retro heaven, and looks to be in fantastic overall condition. Without too much effort and money it could be a real cracker.

That is slick, I think the wheels work!

+1 more lowering to pull off those wheels. E12 based suspension is just too old to worth the hassle though.

Oh dear. It's an E12 based Karmann, you'll be able to watch it rust before your very eyes, as distinct from the BMW built E28's which hid their rust secrets from you.

Not as sure about the E39 wheels on it and why these NZ E24s are always in grandad colours though...

It's not beachwear; it's more a linen suit.

.... though don't assume it's on loafers.  These are great fun to drive!

I absolutely love the original recaro seats. So rare. A mate of mine had the same recaro seats in one of the early right hand drive M635si's (1985). He was adamant that they were an option.

Is this a colour factory for a 79 E24? It almost seems like a E9 colour - Fjord blau.

Whats one of these actually worth now? I need one to match my 1980s pre stock market crash executive house... 

Maybe I have no taste, but that colour and those wheels look awesome to me :D
