Ron has owned more than 20 E24 6-se­ries models over the years and has car­ried out all sorts of up­grades in that time; he cur­rently owns three ex­am­ples. Ron says: ‘Among those cars is a 1989 635 CSi that I’ve up­graded for bet­ter per­for­mance, with a pol­ished cylin­der head, over­bored throt­tle body and a chipped ECU. I bought the car as a project. It needed a lot of work, so along the way I also fit­ted low­ered and stiff­ened sus­pen­sion with Eibach springs and Bil­stein dampers along with big­ger brakes all round. Ini­tially I fit­ted 18in wheels but the ride was too hard so the car now sits on met­ric rims, with a di­am­e­ter of about 16¼in. One of my cars sits on 15in wheels – it rides rather bet­ter than it looks.’
