What have you done in your e12 Today, or yesterday, maybe last week.. month?

Recommended Posts

Mmmmm... So much e12 goodness!

 

That's the second e12 I've heard of becoming a daily driver, Neil sold his 520(carb) to a guy who planned to use it in the same way.

 

e12, London run about, who knew?

Got some rear headrests in blue, just need the round clips that fit into the parcel shelf now. So if anyone has any I will buy!

 

Also trying to sort out a poor cold start issue today. Long cranking then eventually fires up. 

 

And polishing my new wheels!!!

Motor died. Duncan sorted me a spare with a good motor but damaged gearbox so I Was able to a good one from the two. Seems it has some extra positions that mine didn't now which is a bonus.

Glad its all working - that came from my e28 and i wasted money on an e34 sunroof motor assuming they'd be the same - FYI - they're not even close :lol: but i kept that one as i knew it would be useful :)

Apparently it isn't supposed to fit mine but it clearly does. Does an E28 have an auto open feature? Could explain the extra positions?

Oh treated myself to a set of these today. :)

Looks good! I need to fit mine. I have the metal brackets but no plastic inserts. 

 

Are they screws or bolts that hold the bracket in place?
