Stuttgart Shark – Jan-Eric Géugis’ 1983 BMW E24 635CSI

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

Although I have a history and carry an unhealthy obsession with E24’s, I’m not alone in thinking them to be one of BMW’s best ever looking cars. There’s something about the classic shark nose in coupe guise that they just got right back in the 80s. It’s a car that has aged extremely well, too, and you’ll find it’s still appreciated by the vast majority of people – even those who aren’t even interested in cars will admire a 635CSI, stock or modified. Like all shark nose BMW’s, the value of the 6 series is on the rise, which means there’s fewer out there – especially modified ones. To try and preserve these cars, I think the only way to do so is by treating them to air suspension (unless you’re keeping it stock, of course). Jan-Eric owns the beautiful example in the spotlight today… this car has been grabbing everyone’s attention throughout the 2017 car show season, which isn’t surprising – it’s a thing of beauty. I finally met up with Jan-Eric during my stay in Poland for Raceism THE Event back in July, where we spent a Summer’s evening cruising through the city of Wrocław. Eventually we stumbled across the perfect setting, where we may or may not have crashed a couple’s wedding photoshoot 😉 However, when the bride and groom decide to include the car and pose alongside it, you know you’ve done something right.

 

 

A 23-year-old electrician from Stuttgart, Jan-Eric has been fixated by BMW’s since he was a kid, and was lucky enough to own an E46 for his first car. “Back then I had to have something low value with a small engine, but at least it was a BMW” he laughs. “I like sporty street cars, and these cars are the best mix of sportiness and classiness in one package, especially the older BMW’s up until the late 90’s”. Since the first E46, he’s had a few others, including an E36 which he bought and modified purely to get some fun out of the straight six M50. Later he moved on to a more sensible car, an E46 330d Touring, which has taken over his daily driving duties. Naturally, this was treated to coilovers and super-concave BBS RC’s.

 

 

But let’s get down to more important matters, re: the 635CSI… It had always been Jan-Eric’s dream to own an old school BMW, and in Winter 2015 he began searching for one. The hunt actually started out for an E21 or E28, but every car he came across had far too much rust and required excessive restoration – even though he was in Germany, where you’d expect to have much more choice. With the E24 also being rare over there, he didn’t even consider them an option, until one just so happened to pop up for a reasonable price, and in his hometown of Stuttgart. What a result!

 

 

The car was an early example, registered in 1983 and featured the older chrome bumpers. It was in relatively good condition too, only needing a good polish and paint correction, as it was still wearing its original factory paint (Polaris Silver). The car was a no-brainer for Jan-Eric, so the deal was done and he took the big 6 home. He had a plan for his ‘classic bmw’, even before he had found the E24. It had to be slammed on air suspension and shiny wheels. It’s a classic combo for any shark nose BMW… it’s all that’s really required for a jaw-dropping end result.

 

 

The majority of the build was completed by Jan-Eric himself, in his garage, with the occasional hand from friends. His first port of call with the project was to address the air suspension. Air ride can be a little daunting when it comes to classic cars, as most suspension companies don’t cater for them, but luckily he found airRIDE-System.pl who fabricated custom air struts for the front and rear.

 

 

Once these were built, Jan-Eric could bolt them on directly to the car. To control the whole system, he opted for an Air Lift Performance AutoPilot V2 management package. Finally, the 635CSI could sit on the floor, and drive over obstacles with no issues.

 

 

Next, it was time for wheels – the make or break part of any build. Jan-Eric was set on BBS RF’s. After purchasing some basic 8×17’s, he just wasn’t happy with the specs, considering the size of the 6 series, so he started looking into step-up lips to convert the wheels from 17″ up to 18″.

 

 

For this, new 18″ barrels were required along with the specialised ‘step-up lips’. However, rather than traditional step-up lips, which have a certain look to them, he discovered some more appealing ‘bubble-lips’ from Slantlips.com, which intensify the look of a 4,5″ lip even more and look rather unique.

 

 

With the bubble lips and new larger barrels purchased, he eventually rebuilt the RF’s to 10×18 +5 (front) and 11×18 -2 (rear), using gold hardware, polished aluminium hexes, and repainted the centres in a satin “shadow bronze”. The wheels are paired to 225/35 tyres (front), and 245/35’s (rear).

 

 

With the help of his friend Andy at MegerleMetalworks, the fenders were customised to allow for the wider wheels. This gave Jan-Eric the arch-to-lip fitment that he wanted. We rarely see many ‘fitted’ E24’s, as most bagged examples tend to tuck their wheels. This is one of the defining characters of the build and it certainly makes Jan-Eric’s E24 stand out from the crowd (not that there is much of one!).

 

 

Jan-Eric finished off the car by replacing the tired factory comfort seats with a complete black sport leather interior removed from an early M635CSI. Along with a wooden Nardi steering wheel, these items transformed the E24’s cabin and finally made it a sporty, yet classy place to be. Jan-Eric’s 635CSI may be a simple build, but in reality, suspension and wheels is all you really need to touch with a car like this. So many people get easily carried away and mess with what the car should look like. Jan-Eric has got it right and seems extremely happy with the car in its current state. That being said, he has mentioned that he’d like to see some more power from the M30B35 engine!

Raceism THE Event 2017

Date: 8/9 July 2017

Location: Stadion Wrocław, Poland

 

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

Last year there was one event, in particular, that had me drooling all over my iPhone screen… the one and only Raceism Event, which boasted purely high-quality cars at a jaw-dropping venue. To top it off there was insane drifting taking place simultaneously, notably featuring a fully stanced, supercharged widebody E46 M3, going at it all weekend! It looked like my idea of heaven, so much so that I knew I had to get over to Poland for their next event. I initially considered driving over from the UK, but damn, Wrocław is a long way! So I looked into flying and amazingly managed to find flights from Stansted-Wrocław for just £50 return. It was decided, then, I was going to Poland! As the flight was so cheap, I just booked it and decided to worry about everything else later. It actually worked out really well. I split the whole trip with a friend, and we found accommodation for four nights for just £60 each and used UBER (which were also stupidly-cheap) to travel around. Raceism were kind enough to sort us out with some Media passes too, so we could get nice and close to the action. The event itself takes place at Wrocław’s municipal stadium, a huge venue with an ‘upper deck’ area utilised for the static show, and a lower car park which is transformed into a drift circuit for the weekend. We arrived nice and early on the Friday, to watch all the show cars arrive and park up. The quality of cars was just as I imagined… next level. I mean, there were four RWB Porsche’s in attendance. Yeah, four! It’s no surprise that Raceism use the slogan “Go Hard” to promote their show… it sums it up perfectly. I could talk about it all day, but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Sit back and enjoy…

I can’t think of any other event that I’ve attended where the quality of cars has been this high. Raceism have created a truly prestigious car show for the European stance community, with cars from all over the continent in attendance, and judges hailing from the UK to Japan. Plus, the ‘Next Level’ drifting event was worth the trip alone. This wasn’t your typical drift championship – think more ‘homebrew’ and you get the idea. Health and safety was so relaxed that we could get right up and close to the cars on track – check out the Bonus Gallery below to see what I mean! So if you asked me which ONE car show to visit, it’d be Raceism. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a short break away, and if you’re travelling from the UK, you’ll find everything in Poland extremely cheap! Next year’s dates have already been confirmed for 6-8 July 2018 – make sure you get it in your diary. We’ll be back.

Spring ’17 – 10 Years of The Wheel Specialist Fareham

Date: 13 May 2017

Location: The Wheel Specialist Fareham, Hampshire

 

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

Back in the Spring of 2015 I was invited to an Open Day at The Wheel Specialist’s (TWS) Fareham branch. Not knowing what to expect, it turned out to be one of the biggest Southern event’s that I’ve attended with a surprisingly high standard of cars in attendance. Two years later, TWS got in touch to say they were organising another Open Day event to celebrate 10 years in business, and they wanted Slam Sanctuary to be involved. Naturally, I agreed, with the intention of targeting the sort of cars that we love – of the slammed variation of course. Well, TWS smashed it once again. The event was a huge success, with all sorts of cars taking over the surrounding industrial estate. With a DJ, burger van, a bar, and great coffee from The Splitscreen Barista, the vibe was perfectly chilled, giving us southerners a much-needed chance to catch up with one another as well as getting a chance to chat to TWS about their services and get an insight into what they do. With so many cool cars popping in and out throughout the day, I captured a few of my favourites, check them out…

The Wheel Specialist Fareham are lucky enough to refurbish wheels on all sorts of rare and quirky vehicles, as well as the typical everyday car – this brought a lot of interesting examples to the Open Day. We may love slammed and stanced cars, but it’s always nice to see things that we rarely see – we’re petrolheads after all. Make sure you check out the Bonus Gallery below for more of these gems. As well as TWS giving away an award for ‘Best Wheels’ of the day (won by Sean Crompton and his Carline CM6’s), we also ran our own Instagram-based competition throughout the day – congratulations to David Cooper for winning with his photograph of Ryan’s Alpina B10 (Click here to check out the photo), he took home some Slam Sanctuary merch and a Meguiar’s Mirror Bright detailing kit. Big thanks to everyone that took part. Nicely done, TWS, here’s to another ten years!

Westside Treffen 2016

Date: 25 September 2016

Location: Chalfont St. Peter Cricket Club, Gerrards Cross

 

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

Westside Treffen is the hidden gem of modified car shows in the UK. It really does surprise me how many people don’t know of its existence when I mention it. From people that have been, including all the regulars, you’ll constantly hear “Come to Westside. It’s THE most chilled out show.” Well, they ain’t lying! The quality of cars on display is usually top notch too, and that’s partly what makes this show awesome. It could also have something to do with the time of year, being the last outdoor event on the calendar, a lot of people are about to tuck their show cars away for winter. Westside is one final stage for your pride and joy to make a spectacle before the new show season (Unless you’re attending Ultimate Stance this weekend, of course – but the crowd there is slightly different). The ideology for Westside is pretty simple really. Book out a cricket club on the outskirts of West London, bring your friends and their cars (of which 80% happen to be concourse condition classic Volkswagens), get the family to help out with some incredible home-cooked food, 80s/90s music and you’re onto a winner. It’s no surprise that the show has grown year on year but still remains a small, relaxed event.

I’m really pleased that Westside has stuck to the same venue. It seems like they could move somewhere bigger every year with ease. Instead, they stick to what they know and what works. Let’s face it, there’s plenty of larger shows you can visit, but this is partly what makes Westside unique. Some worry about getting their car into the show because of the limited space – I say just turn up earlier! I think I said it in my previous article, but 2016 has not been kind to us in regards to rain… Luckily the rain stayed away for this show, but it had been chucking it down the previous night, which meant wet roads on route to the show. This blatantly put a few people off, but it just so happened that people turned up a bit later than usual. The show was heaving. I turned up, caught up with loads of friends, admired some impressive cars, and feasted on some fantastic Jamaican and Indian food. What’s not to love? If you’ve still not been to Westside, you’ve been missing out.

We’ll catch you all very soon with our booth at Ultimate Stance (Telford International Centre) on Sunday 30th October.
