  3. Splondike's M535i Project

    Happy new year everyone ! So I managed to get a little time to do a couple of jobs this week. Finally fitted the M5 rev counter that I got from Dan about 3 years ago, so no more depressing fuel consumption in 2018 Also, having retreived my original bootlid from my parents' garage, I re-fitted the boot light finally that the painters never managed to do... It's a fiddly job getting it fed through the bootlid ! I also fitted a new coolant sensor and tested the gauge etc with a little fire up, I liked the gunsmoke from the tailpipes after it was stopped Next up I will fix the PAS leak that seems to have developed ! I can pretend I have that E28 M5 I am never going to be able to afford now too !

    I use it whenever I get the chance, it goes to quite a few shows, meets and to work when the weather is nice. Mileage is limited to 3k on the policy and of course I have the M3 as well so it may be used a little less Dan.

    Finished putting the thread all back together now, took a while ! But it was good to be reminded of all I have been through with the car and all the work I have done !!! Here are some previously unseen shots from before I owned it circa 2005 and some comparison shots with how it is now. You can decide if it's better or worse Wearing 15 inch E34 rims back in the day... Engine bay before many ups and downs ! Original Pearl Beige cloth...
