    Default 1985 635csi Shark Attack

    Sup Fam, so I picked up e24 about a month ago. Been lurking the web for one for about a year or so and finally came across one at a killer price. It's from Cali which I don't have to deal with to much rust issues since these cars are notorious for rust. Does have a couple of rust spots which the previous painted over. I will take care of those issue soon. Car does have over 300k on the clock which stopped working but BMW stands behind their slogan of the Ultimate Driving Machine because this car is still running like a champ. It's a 5 speed which is a plus. It's does have some electrical issues which I'm still working on. Signals, wipers and the reverse lights are not working which I'm still trying to figure out. I did replace the brake switch to get the brake lights to work. Next will be a full tune up and other minor things that need replacing for now. The previous owner took good care of the car it seems so I got a great deal on the car. Plus the car came with the 19" BBS RS-GT which I'm selling by the way. I did recently purchased some 18" Veilside Andrews F for the car. I wanted to go against the grain of the BMW x BBS combo. I'm sure some folks will agree and disagree with my setup but let me explain why I picked this wheel. The e24 speaks Shark by way of the design of the car. I thought it would be cool to get give the shark some teeth hence the wheel design. Plus being different is a good thing so I love the look. Anyways, it's currently dropped on springs and bilstein struts which will be for sale too. Debating whether to go air or static. Overall, the car ride and shifts great. Can't complain for the price I got her. Will post mod updates soon. So here are some pics of her with both wheel setups. Enjoy!






    As you can tell I'm stuck in the 80s. I have a 1987 Fiero as well which I'm working on too. Will start a thread on here pretty soon.




















    Still haven't put the nut and pins to the center caps to the wheel because I'm missing two pins. Will have those soon

    If you can afford it definatly go with air rather than static. It looks better when aired out and ride better when not.

    I'm definatly not a fan of the huge baller chrome wheels, the first set was ok but it's a little too sporty for my taste. car looks realy clean though. And the stance is good.

    Thanks brotha. I wanted to go skinnier on the tyres but this will do for now since I bought the wheels with tyres.

    I like where you're going and I'm always keen to see different wheels on particular cars, but I think in this case, with that style of wheel in 18's you'll need air to really pull it off. I also think E24's need that true 80's rubber/painted lip spoiler out back to balance them out a bit.

    Yea I feel ya on the wheel combo with these car. I was a little ify about putting these on but once I did it felt right. I just wish I was on air already cuz it would look killer. And yes, these cars need a lip spoiler to balance out the look which I will be doing soon.

    When you showed me what wheels you wanted to put on an e24, I have to admit I was a little skeptical. I was wrong. Get that thing on air and you'd have a killer early '90's rap video car vibe going on.

    Omgggggg those wheels. What are they? I thought carving head at first but I know that can't be it. Either way they are rad and although I'm all about static I'd love to see this thing tucking on air. Rad work.

    Great car. Very clean. But i gotta say, your choice of wheels is really bothering me. Car looks like it needs Cocoa Puffs or McDonald's livery. Sorry...

    Thanks man, that's the plan is to get it on air and have the fenders huggin the tires when air'ed out. Yes the wheels are different than the norm BBS but I wanted to go with the shark theme and put some teeth on this car..lol. Hopefully soon I will have it on air.

    Here's a couple of pics I recently took over the month. Had the chance to meet Tom Smith from Fired Up Garage at Cars and Coffee. He came up to my car to say he always love these cars. Very nice and funny guy. Also working on the specs to get these Autostrada Modena rebuilt with slants lips. Thinking of doing chrome centers with polished lips and gold hardware. Will see. Came across a pretty sick M5 so I had to park next to it and snap a pic. Pretty cool to see old vs new.

    Those faces always confuse me because I always think they are center locking wheels but I see them on old 6er's and old w124's and it blows my mind.

    So a little update, finally found a rear lip for the car. Haven't installed it yet because I have to make some corrections on the lip. Sent off the Autostrada Modena to get rebuilt. Doing a slant lip conversion from 16" to 18". Hopefully have those done soon. Also working a sponsorship with Broadway Static on a air setup. Slowly but surely. Stay tuned.

    P.S. I also shrunk my care by accident. HA!
