I dont want to hijack this thread but it seems to have gotten the e24 crowd out. I have found a 84 greymarket 635csi with high milage 234,000 but he only wants a 1000 $ for it and i have always loved the look of the 633-635 s should i stay away and if not where can parts be found ??

I would not but a grey market car in the us...you will not be able to register it as the smog stuff on it is different I believe...I could be wrong but I looked into one a while back and found that to be the case, though I do live in CA where we have very strict smog laws

The battery tray in the engine compartment was rusted through. Better weight distribution. Cheap kit from Summit Racing included battery box and cables.

I'll probably use it as a part time track car for driver's schools while keeping it streetable. OEM parts are a little expensive for a car that needed a lot of work to start with (when I bought it).

Needs new interior, new paint, lots of engine leaks, etc.

But I STILL love to just stare at it!

most of them you find are pretty beat up at any sort of regular price..you can find really nice ones for a much higer price and they may not necessarily be any more reliable...and you learn a lot working on them, a lot about what BMW did wrong once hahaha

Oh and I don't think I was talking in any sense about only M6 the title of the thread is e24 anybody? I think all 6 series (classic ones) were e24's correct me if I am wrong...

I was driving to get some food with a friend and saw a 6er in the lot of a high class eats. It was a mint M6 with 50k! but it gets better, the owner was walking out and I asked to hear it run and see the engine. He bought it new off the lot! I own a modded 86 E30 and a 84 E24

saw a bronze colored one of these at a local junk yard for $1300 with perfect interior and exterior (front left signal plastic was broken, but there was a replacement in the car) the only visible kink was that the exhaust was not suspended from the car, it was bent near the engine and lying on the ground.

It's funny because I had never seen bimmers in such good condition at that junk yard and there were two there that day. The other was an e30 325is (I think), it's rear end was twisted in a wierd way, and it was in worse condition than the e24, but cost the same amount.
