    My NewToy 635CSi

    The interior of the Baur is standard E30 facelift fabric in good condition. I purchased the car disassembled in 2005 and spent a few years just collecting parts. Back on the road since 2010. It is a genuine MK Motorsport, was reputed to be their show car at Munich Motor Show in 1985. It has all their bits except their very special 2.7 engine which has gone AWOL. It is currently running a standard 325 engine. But it has motorsport gearbox, good suspension (I replaced the MK springs with H&R) MK sway bars, MK Strut braces, personalised Nardi steering wheel, extra gauges, MK headers and rocker cover, and of course the MK Motorsport bodykit and the Fittipaldi wheels. Of all my cars, (i have seven) this one is still my favourite! I do not intend to ever sell it. Sadly I may soon have to sell the blue 635, to fund the restoration of the next one.

    My NewToy 635CSi

    So, it has been a while since I posted on this thread. Took the head off, found gasket had blown between 5 & 6. Head components were worn beyond reasonably re using. Looked at various options (including buying a parts car - but that is another story...)and decided to keep this car original and to rebuild the cylinder head. Big thanks to Jon at Begley Motor Works who has completed the rebuild - new valves, guides, rockers, camshaft, seals etc - virtually anything that moved was replaced. Bottom end seems to be all good, as Jared suggested. Car is now back and running sweetly, and hopefully I will take it to the BMW Nationals in a week or so. Meanwhile, I have purchased the parts car, only to find it is too good to wreck, so another unexpected restoration project about to begin.
  6. Hi guys, am looking for facelift E24 parts - Front Bumper - chrome trim only (but will take whatever) Rear Bumper complete both front guards bonnet nose cone let me know what is out there. Cheers...Stephen 021 744 881
  7. Had Novus Porirua, repair a similar stone damage on my F11 Touring, did an excellent job and if your insurance is with Vero (hence $500 excess on replacement) the excess does not apply to repairs - so they picked up the tab. Win win! Oh and we were all travelling to Lake Ferry for their annual run. Great selection of cars!
  8. Yep please have sent text Cheers...Stephen
  9. Familiar with this car, it is in Concours condition. It is simply superb!
