Well this sure is an interesting E24. Look closely at the tailights in the picture. It looks like E21 3-series lights were used in place of the normal E24's. Weird. Guess that was part of this cars major modifications. Very brief use of this car, some minor running footage, no actual BMW engine/exhaust sounds used (typical since it's supposed to sound like a jet engine). The rear of this car appears to be a European model - look at the sheet metal strip/ridge under the rear license plate area - US spec cars would never have this, since US plates are more square and need addtional room to fit flushly with the body. The short rear bumpers are also a given the more I look at it. Strange they tagged on the 633csi badge. I really doubt this is a 633. It's obviously a euro-model. Also, look at the front air-dam, probably from a Euro-635csi.

Well, yeah. it's a European spec 633. In fact, the car was imported over right from Germany. All the gauges are in German too.

The 320I Tail light lenses were used because of production costs. a modern 633 tail light lens costs $120 a piece. A 320I tail lens costs $20 each. When doing multiple takes of the lens geting damaged, it's better to cut costs and make something that closely fits. On camera, a close fit is fine. up close you can notice the differences and see how they don't fit perfectly.

There really wasn't any running footage of this car at all. it just sat there, so i don't know why you are saying anything about the BMW engine. The only movement you see is the car "landing" in the background with Griff and his gang in it. and since it was outside, there was no sound of a jet. in fact, there were no jet sounds anywhere except duing the time machine returning to the alternate 1985 while flying. it sounded like a planes fuselage just before the jet flew by.

The car is definitely a 633 CSI, again, straight from Germany. it was brought over in the late 70's or early 80's by someone who wanted a euro-car. and about your license plate question. look in the right side of the picture, you can see the license plate mounting hole.

that's where i put the bar-code license plate when i show off the car (even though it's not on the car during the movie.)

Any further questions?

Wow, that's interesting stuff. Great photo too. I guess I thought the car was driving in one scene, but I do recall it being parked mostly. How long have you owned this car? What are those things on the wheels? Can you drive the car?

I always wanted this car as a kid, so it's great to see it saved! It's always facinating to know what happens to the lesser-important to the plot movie cars afterwards
