E28 m535i Switchable auto

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I'm viewing an m535i auto and it doesn't have the Switchable sport option

 

I believe all m535i had them as standard?

 

Is that correct?

According to Andy Everett's book the EH came in from 85 so you would expect switchable. Though perhaps not, you'll need the VIN code and Real OEM to confirm.

 

Not sure how easy it is to fit a non EH in an EH car if it had been replaced?

My old old 525e had an EH sport auto.
If you use http://bimmer.work/ and 1865545 vin it shows
201 Rape Methyl Ester Version (rme)
 translated, means 4 speed sport auto  
200 means bog standard auto. 
Thank you

My 1985 Zobelbraun Eta was specced to be able to run on rapeseed oil.  It also has a switchable 4 speed EH auto box.

 

Regards,

Doesn't work for my vin oddly.
 
Thought RME was a fuel?
I'm struggling to get some of the vin decoders to work recently

The one you said didn't work

Sometimes you have to tick a few photos (I didnt in this case), and you get,

BMW in their infanite wisdom chanded some of the SA codess what they now call '

201 Rape Methyl Ester Version (rme) Rapeseed methyl ester version (rme)

 

was actually in 1986 "201 4-speed automatic with 3 selectable shifting programs "

 

Frank if you cant get it to work, post the last 7 digits of the vin and I will try for you.

Yes did that and it just goes back to the beginning as if it resets itself instead of giving information
How odd
