    Breaking BMW 535i sport manual E34

    Noted, thx
  2. Reg H236 ANE, Chassis n: WBAHD12070BF01532, mileage 150k, Colour: Diamandschwartz Metallic For the story behind the car and the work done so far, pls see I spent a lot of time working on this car before i was tempted away by an M5. Now i've decided the M5 should take precedence so i've decided to clear the 535i Sport and its parts, most of which have already been separated from the shell. Here is an initial list of parts available along with a price. For any parts too large to post, collection would be from Sutton or Kingston in Surrey. Feel free to contact me via PM, i'll need a lead time of at least a week to get pics as requested etc as i'm not close to the car location. For many of the rebuilt parts like the suspension i can provide the receipts for parts such as shocks, springs, nuts and bolts etc for your own records. Front Indicators Clear £ 20.00 Rear lights amber £ 20.00 Front Indicators Amber £ 20.00 Bonnet £ 50.00 Boot with Spoiler £ 75.00 Engine £ 300.00 Gearbox, Manual £ 300.00 LSD £ 300.00 Suspension £ 250.00 Refurbished front brake calipers £ 75.00 non refurbished rear calipers £ 50.00 Rear subframe, derusted and POR15'd and new bushes £150.00 Front subframe, derusted and POR15'd £ 50.00 Suspension, fully rebuilt, Eibach lowering springs, new control arms, bushes, Rubbers etc £ 600.00 Front bumper £ 200.00 Rear bumper £ 150.00 Side skirts £ 100.00 Manual, Black leather, Front and rear seats + Door cards, not torn but need refreshing £ 350.00 Steering wheel £ 150.00 Radiator, pretty much new £ 75.00 Shell, with V5 £ 100.00 Thx Clem

    E34 Headliner material idea's

    i bought this stuff after the internet recommended it... https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00BILCFDK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Who knows how good it will be.

    E34 Headliner material idea's

    Hi Guys, I'm going to tackle the sagging headlining in the E34 over the next few months, i'm lucky enough to have a complete set from my other E34 that i can clean up and prep ahead of just swapping out the old one. The colour is the OEM light grey BMW colour... Bearing in mind the handles, sunvisors etc are all grey, what material and colour should i be going for to replicate the OEM look, and does anyone know of a UK vendor of the material... Thx!

    E34 535i Sport / M5 content

    Quick Update, passed its MOT today, with no advisories. It initially failed on Friday on emissions, but with recent spark plugs, filters etc my mechanic felt simply a weekend of spirited driving would do it the world of good, and it must have because emissions are now back to acceptable levels. I had a brilliant drive to Boxhill, around and back and would thoroughly recommend it... All for now. Continued enjoyment is the order of the day Thx

    E39 M5 Front and Rear Struts Replacement

    Did this last year and it's worth changing them all while your there. On a driveway the front took just over half a day, the back a little longer believe it or not. You'll also want an alignment afterwards

    E34 535i Sport / M5 content

    I've owned this M5 6 months now, so due a little update. I've been using it quite sporadically but managed a trip to Bristol and back as well as taking it to Silverstone F1 last Sunday. The exhaust note and power above 3.5k is addictive. I noticed it was running a little cool so changed out the thermostat and coolant and i've also upgraded the stereo to a decentish Pioneer one although in truth with the sunroof open and 2nd gear i prefer listening to the engine. Its a fantastic car to drive, light clutch and feels great round bendy roads. My one gripe is that it could do with some tighter steering, i have a rebuilt steering box from the 535 (see earlier in the thread) which i may swap out over the winter. Comparing the car overall back to back to my E39 540 i'd say the 540 more appropriate for Mway cruising, purely because of the gearing. The car was also featured in this months Classic Car magazine, so i got a free photoshoot and walk around Beauleau Motor Museum and Grounds, which i highly recommend. Here a few snaps from the day. Generally speaking i'm now keen to add to the stable and if the right 2002 / 2003 E39 M5 came up for sale i'd be very tempted. To make space for all this i'm clearing some land next to my garage to put the MX5 and the shell of the 535 so i can get the M5 in the garage in time for Winter. I'm still undecided what to do with the 535 which is still in parts. Next on the horizon is the MOT due in August, so we'll what what that throws up, but other than that i plan to just continue enjoying it.

    E39 540 issue

    Mate, now that you've said that, my multi connector clips on the throttle are broken (dont ask how), will pop the bonnet later and check the connections...

    E39 540 issue

    So after a little research, It's not really clear what throttle actuator actually means, has anyone had this code before?

    E39 540 issue

    Hi Guys, 2002 BMW 540. Got a Engine Failsafe message on the dash on Sunday, followed by cutting out on Idle. Car runs fine other than that and no misfire to speak of. Ran the codes on INPA and comes up with code 130 DK Position monitoring, which i deducted to be the pre cat lambda sensor. my question is: is that the correct corresponding part for that code? BMW want £170 per sensor, so want to be 100% sure... Thx Clem
