  1. Reduce the weight and simplify the functionality (less parts to go wrong). Rear windows tend to be used less than fronts so the switch contacts will oxodise and result in slow or no operation due to higher resistance and greater voltage drops (losses). There are also two switches (front & rear) in each circuit as well as the rear window circuit isolation switch. If a manual window is a bit stiff then you try harder and it doesn't matter if you are oxidised or not. Enjoy your weekend. Best regards, Mick
  2. There is an E28 owner in the US who is looking for a set of manual rear window regulators, link below: https://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=157091 Anybody have a desire to upgrade their E28 to electric rear windows? Here is a potential opportunity to arrange a trans-Atlantic exchange / swap. You would need to exchange the rear door looms as well but they connect at the base of the B-pillar. The rear window isolating switch and rear window switches would be needed from the center console (cut outs are already visible from the underside). The center console looms on my Eta's already has the switch bases wired in place (fitted for but not with) but worth checking before proceeding. Rear door switches will also be required. Rear door cards would also need to be modified to accept the switch and a blanking plug to cover the hole where the manual crank shaft used to be. A fairly basic plug and play upgrade if you are so inclined. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    Thanks Duncan, I have been hard over the other way for 18 months, lots of landscaping with diminished E28 tinkering Life without tinkering isn't life is it Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    E28 replacement fuse board

    Hi Ivor, I am following the thread on mye28.com with interest. Seems to be getting good press with several forum members retrofitting this upgrade. Just moving to blade fuses will solve a bucket load of issues but with the LED's as well. sharp. Best regards, Mick

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    Managed to spend a few hours in the back yard this weekend and completed the wall across the west face of the house. Any resemblance to Admiralty weather work grey and black boot topping is purely coincidental Just need to hire the diamond chop saw brick cutter to cut a few blocks to size to finish the curve and wall junction. Stay safe and best regards, Mick

    Hi Paul, Some pipes are supplied pre-formed other not. If they are not pre-formed then one of these will do the trick: https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/20035052923?iid=334140228079 Just use your old pipe as a template. Good so see you now get how RealOEM works, it is not always intuitive and can be quite confusing. Top Tip You can check the part number matches your car build by having the main stealer reference it against you VIN number. RealOEM is useful but not guarantied, has gaps and runs a little behind the main stealers parts system. Have a good weekend, Best regards, Mick

    Hi Paul, The RealOEM drawings can be a little tricky to understand so I have attempted to provide some clarity below. RealOEM Brake Pipe, Rear drawing for 1987 Euro 518i RHD. I have used "strike through" to clear the "only applies to disc brake" items. The items remaining apply to drum brakes. I have used "Strike through" to clear the No Longer Available (NLA) "ENDED" drum brake items. I have highlighted red the two rear pipes which are the same part number so the same pipe for both right or left.

    E28 New Old Stock Front Mud Flaps

    Hi John, I think you nailed it. The trade off is cleaner car but lower MPG with four hoofing great air brakes bolted to the car that are perpendicular to the air flow around it. Really disrupts the smooth, rounded aerodynamic shape of an E28 So about a 3% reduction in MPG so not insubstantial if you are covering a lot of miles routinely. Best regards, Mick

    Hi Paul, The "Brake Pipe, Rear" drawing is arranged with you standing at the front left corner of the car looking towards the rear right corner. I think you will find lines (items 1 & 3) are the front-to-back body hard lines as they originate from the "T-Piece" in the engine bay which also links to the opposite front brake hard line for a split brake system. The "T-Piece" appears in the "Brake Pipe, Front" drawing as item 5. The hoses (item 5) link the front-to-back body hard lines to the trailing arm hard lines (item 4) left and (item 2) right. The hoses (item 14) link the trailing arm hard lines to the rear brake drum pistons. Hope this helps clarify the "Brake Pipe, Rear" drawing and your appropriate part identification. Best regards, Mick
