    And a few pics of it washed The M5 Badge on the boot needs putting in the correct place i've just noticed from the pics.
  4. E34 beginner - pre-purchase advice

    Any E34 at this age either has been welded or needs it... I'd approach this extremely cautiously

    Well collected it last night, possibly the worst evening of the year so far to collect a 300hp, non DSC, RWD car. -4 degrees in Eastbourne and pretty much all the way back home to London. First impressions are how stable the car is, at speed and round bends. The sound of the S38 is fantastic above 3.5k rpm although given the cold, i was driving very prudently. On the motor way its running a little cool, something that wasn't apparent on the test drive around local B roads, so i've ordered up a new thermostat to resolve. I'll update with some pics once i've given her a clean

    @ Duncan, yes 3.6 on turbines (which i love the look of). Its seems to be a sound car, same owner for the last 9 years who's been diligent in caring for it from fixing failed SLS units to valve clearances. @ Blackman, Thanks! i've put alot of effort into the sport, but my budget for the welding and body work has just been spent on the M5 . Deep down i'm more comfortable sinking money into an E34 that will hold its value better than a 535i sport.

    Update Time, And its a landmark one... Slow but steady progress... front subframe done and refurbished steering box on... The rear subframe was a bitch to do, even with the bush pulling tool... Still managed to get it all cleaned up and although the pics dont show it, i've pressed in all the new bushes for the frame, diff and trailing arms Also managed to finish off the rear shocks. Ended up binning everything from the old ones, happy with how they're looking Before After So that means i just need to finish the rear trailing arms and hubs / bearings to complete all the subframe and bushes part of this. In Parallel to this, in August 2017 i had been in contact with the owner of a lovely M5 who wanted to sell, but for various reasons we never made a deal... then i went to see it this weekend, and couldn't help myself and bought it. Not sure where that leaves the 535i sport, but i'm extremely excited to have a usable M5 in time for Spring and hopefully a jaunt on the route Napoleon in July. Here's the only pic i have, further updates once i've collected it.
  8. Wheels to fit my E34

    Great link
  9. New owner of M5 3.6

    Congrats on the purchase, the car looks great. I've been trying to buy a specific black e34 3.6 M5 similar to this one since October, had i know this was for sale i'd have come to take a closer look! Let us know how you find it.
  10. When exactly was the LCI Switch

    Cheers to both of you, a colleague at work just told me the same. I need to replace the e39 at some point, i've had searches on Ebay, Autotrader, Pistonheads, car and classic etc since Oct 17 but impossible to find a well specced and maintained, post 2007, sub 85k 550i sport.
  11. When exactly was the LCI Switch

    So is this bad boy LCI? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2007-BMW-5-SERIES-550i-M-Sport-4dr-Auto/253397846360?hash=item3affb04958:g:Zb4AAOSwFqVZsr5T
  12. Hi E60 boffins, There's a nice but expensive 550 up for sale but its a 30th march 2007 registered car. Would this make it LCI or not? What was the exact date that they switched over and more interestingly when did they stop producing the E60 550i sport, as the few that come up for sale seem to be 05/06/07 Thx Clem
  13. Introduction, new E34 M5 3.8 owner...soon!

    Sorry to hear this. Will the car be up for sale again then?
  14. Avoid suspected clocked E39 Mora M5 on gumtree

  15. 540i error codes

    A lot of 540 thermostats fail open, its an inexpensive fix
