So.... I acquired this car last year after it exchanged hands about 4-6 times before landing on my doorstep. The poor fella was in desperate need of TLC and an owner that would actually take the time to sort out his quirks. I dont know if I'm that owner, but I am certainly going to try to be (for now). And although I dont really have the room for him in my stable, I took him in with open arms. With that said, the car also didnt have a title when I got it. The story is that it went to auction, and the highest bidder left it on the lot abandon and a towing company removed it and took over possession of the car. Here is where it was sold and jumped around title-less for a few years until yesterday that is, when I finally made the journey back through all of the previous owners to find out what I just explained. The towing company gave me all the necessary paperwork and after a simple trip to the DMV, I now legally own another car. About the car itself. Its a 1984 633CSI E24 5 speed coupe. The car is fairly rare from what I have researched. Only 1173 manuals were sold here in america, and of that, the color combination is almost none existent. Alpine white exterior with Cherry red AKA"Ox Blood" interior. Pair that with the Zender kit and it seems like a pretty cool car. UNLESS you have to work on it. So basically I am starting this thread more to help myself document the process of getting it running again and returning it into a nice factory condition. First day I saw it: First day home:
Hey all! Just traded my E30 for this guy: More pics to come... So you're probably thinking... what the heck is so special about it? Well, from the factory it was a 525it with an auto transmission; BMW didn't make E34 Wagons with the "big six" M30B35 motor. So one of the P.O's had to go through hell to swap it (yes, apparently its very hard to do on a 525it). Whats done to it thus far: Rebuilt M30B35 50k miles ago Getrag 260/5 Manual trans Brand new M5 Clutch Brand new clutch master cylinder brand new slave cylinder Aluminum lightweight driveshaft M5 Rear End Wheel Studs M5 LSD Bilstein Shocks with H&R Springs 08 5 series wheels (Style 138 I believe) Heavy duty sway bars front/rear Poly Suspension bushings all around Poly shifter bushings Straight piped to an Eisenmann Muffler
