I put on a m3 style lip spoiler on my 2007 335i coupe in Oct I ordered a aftermaket one painted to match from a Taiwan shop on Ebay for 79. It is a exact replica same material and paint bmw uses and it same 3M adhesive took about a week and it fit perfect (see pics).

BMW SERIES 7 Seeking Info on a 635CSI

Hi I am new to this board. I recently sold my 1979 Porsche 911SC. A move I now regret But instead of searching for another 911 I have decided to look for a bmw 635CSI. I found a really clean 1989 with a 5-speed and all the usual options. Asking price is 10k and the bmw has 130K on the clock. I havent had a ppi done yet. I have always liked the lines of the 635s and would like to try a touring sports

Message Boards . Manuals are much rarer in the 6 especially in the last two years of production (1988 & 1989). The 1988 and 89 years also have a different ECU and OBD set-up and some minor bodywork changes. Its easier to find dealer parts for them but oftentimes parts from 3rd-party retailers are more expensive due to the fact that the 1988 and 1989 years did not share many parts with other bmw

First of all thats not a bmw dealer estimate thats a Mitchell estimate-which doesnt really change anything because the dealer doesnt actually do their own bodywork. Paint is expensive. bodywork is expensive. Stop questioning the cost of parts and start asking why theyre not doing more As long as they dont write off the car its all good. Its quite normal to only do an estimate on what you can see. What
