    Steering Wheel - coarse spline

    Leave with me, I’ll take a look. I’m having the loft boarded so a good chance to root it out. Ill let let you know how it’s fared from storage.

    Steering Wheel - coarse spline

    You are absolutely correct. I made the mistake of buying a later one for my 1982 e28. I do have an early M Technic in the loft somewhere. Moved house last Nov so will be in a box somewhere.

    Front Spoiler

    Peter, do you have any pics of the early front spoiler you have hanging in your garage? I have the early one too but was wondering if it's the same as mine and if it is for sale?
  4. That’s brilliant. Thanks Mick.
  5. That’s fantastic help. Thanks. I was concerned I had an underlying issue with the car so it maybe I need to find a second hand water valve.
  6. Hi all, I originally replaced the cabin temp control valve as it was stuck on hot. since then, i have had 3 new ones (from main dealer) and they have lasted less than 500 miles, the last one only did 50 miles before it started leaking from the same place. Do you think these are just a dodgy batch or could something else be causing it? Never had the problem before until i replaced with the new ones.

    M535i Rear Bumper Parts

    i renewed the rear brackets / bolts etc on my e28 and all came from the main dealer. That was about 5 yrs ago.

    Over heating

    I would say it's air in the system. Can be bled relatively easily via bleed screw on top of thermostat housing. If this is seized (as they usually are) try doing from the top hose of the radiator if possible with the car parked on an incline.

    E28 hella lamps (main beam)

    Thanks all for the advice, i'll try all!
  10. Hi all, The main beam Hella's (the smaller inners on the front) on my E28 have gone cloudy on the inside. Took them off to see if i could get inside to clean but very small hole on those where the bulb fits. Anyone have any ideas on how to make them clearer? Or anyone have any NOS / or used in good condition to sell? All the best, Darren
  11. Thanks guys. It's only when braking reasonably heavy, perfect at high speed, only when below 35mph
  12. Car drives straight and true, no wheel wobble at any speed. Put on brakes quite hard and at any speed perfect until speed reduces to about 30-35mph and then it shakes through the steering wheel. Could it be wheel balancing as has had new tyres recently and new anti roll bars either side as they were an advisory for last MOT. Thoughts appreciated.

    Sunroof Panel NLA?

    Ok thanks for coming back to me. If it's rust free and the early one let me know how you'd like to proceed. Thanks again,

    Sunroof Panel NLA?

    I need a sunroof from a pre Dec 1982 model as at this point bmw changed the part no so Jon at Cotswold has told me. See below. Later one available but early one isn't.
