    Koni shocks?

    I have yellow Koni's on the rear. They still work well. Gas struts in the front. I see Bilsteins listed on many complaints of body failure at mount rear top, on the forum. Perhaps too high a compression rate, not enough travel?

    Noisy ZF / transmission options

    My cs had a zf originally. I agree that it was THE best shifting trans I ever have driven. It also became very noisy. I had it rebuilt in 1984 so you would think that the parts would be easily available. NO. There is a flaw in the mating of 2 gears that face to face mesh together, not geared...

    New Solexes

    I had Solex carbs on my first engine. Very good and strong. Better than any weber or zenith. Great mileage also. It always seemed interesting that there was never any mention on the forum about Solex carbs. They would be a good purchase.

    so, what kind of garage flooring do members have / recommend?

    If my garage looked like Gransin's, that would be my home. I just painted a topper in my garage and the silhouette of the drop clothes shows.. Have been thinking of doing this recently.

    Chroming grills from Speedway

    I personally have never seen a BMW metal side or hood grill. I had mine vacuum plated in the 1990's. They have been on my car ever since and the plating is in excellent shape. Done by Chuck's Plating in BC Canada, long since closed and out of business. Many have researched for a new platter for...
