  1. 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 Refurbished front brake calipers *SOLD* £ 00.00 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

    My New M5 3.6

    Great looking car, i think the Spoiler delete on the rear boot is such a good look... Look forward to seeing this in the flesh at some point.

    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

    I've been toying with the idea of doing an older BMW up for a while now, and had some great input from some guys here like Jamie and others, mostly warning me off. I've pulled back from the older models due to wanting an entry level project, and decided if i was going to get involved in something, it would be a newer model i am familiar with, to learn the easy way re welding costs and potential area's that will need doing / fixing. As such it was either going to be an E28 or an E34, of which a manual sport model was the only real option of interest to me. After a few months, saw an ad on gumtree for a E34 535i Sport which had been sitting in a car port for the last 8 years. When i drove up to Grantham to view it, it barely started, and almost immediately overheated and missfired, and tbh looks super tired, but the sunroof worked, and i'd driven all the way there, so gave the lad £800 and trailered it home. I've owned a fair few e34 535's over the years so know my way around an M30 (i even put a schrick 282/280 cam in one once) so im 'fairly' comfortable with the mechanics on this. I've decided the plan is to get it running and holding its temp, then bosh it in for an MOT and see just how bad the list is, and go from there. I've no time pressure or plan per se. Here are a couple of pics after getting it in the garage... So its decently specced, but hasn't been touched by a human in at least 8 years i would say. (at last that's when the last MOT expired). Decided to start with the cooling system and missfiring issue. Rotor arm and cap is knackered, the radiator crumbled in my hands when i took it out, the water pump is rusted, but still spins etc. Whipped off all of that and the housings to clean up, get new sensors, stat, pump, rad, rotor arm and cap and see how she runs. Its got some pretty snazzy aftermarket 17's but i love the old metric wheels with the impossibly bad grip, so if anyone has some lying around and by some miracle still have tread let me know... More updates Bi weekly or so...

    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
