  2. Advice please viewing a E34 M5

    Thanks for all the replies so far, appreciate the great comments.
  3. Hi, i'm viewing this car, any advice is appreciated. Ive always had E39's so i'm not an expert on E34's. I know the sill areas need to be properly examined but id be interested to know if theres anything that pops out from the photos. Does the M5 boot badge look right for example? were throwing stars available on a july 94 build? Thanks https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/bmw/m5/bmw-5-series-m5-reg--m5-bem-1994/8321036
  4. E34 M5

    https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/bmw/m5/bmw-5-series-m5-reg--m5-bem-1994/8321036 Im on the look out for an E34 M5 after owning quite a few E39's over the years, Any opinions on this one? Looks a great example. I've tried hard to justify the price to myself but i'm struggling to. I wouldn't like to pay more than 15k for a top condition one with the essential maintenance already done, am i being realistic? Thanks

    Yes and I doubt they know half the cars that well in that they’re just selling on behalf of someone else

    Great response Dennis thanks, I had a look of the photos and couldn’t see the mis alignment on the bumpers but I’m sure you have more of an eagle eye than me. I did see a few big stone chips though! I’m interested that you say to many factors point to a much lower selling price, my thought is that for high quality experience driver cars the factors are pointing higher if anything, due to electric and self drive cars becoming the norm making v8 manual cars ultimate toys. What’s the factors you see in lower prices? Also fwiw it does annoy me in this country that values are based on miles over the condition and maintenance.

    I live in cornwall and im tempted by this also as its on my doorstep just the black on black is a little boring to me, at £31k if not driven more than 1k a year, could this be worth double in 10 years?? https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/bmw/m5/bmw-5-series-e60-e61-m5-touring-5l-v10-2008/1623936

    The price looks decent when compared to hexagon. You have a good point with price comparison with the E60 M5

    obv i don't know but id imagine there are loads of m5's under 60k that are tucked up in peoples car collections from the last 6-7 years. 4 star/ ML / hexagon and the likes must have sold 30+ in last 6/7 years of low mileage examples

    Is that because of the spec and low miles iyo? if i ever paid 26k for an e39 m5 id like to think it wouldn't have rust or stone chips.
  12. Does anyone have any knowledge or know of this car? Has it been for sale long? I zoomed in on the pic of front wheel and it looks rusty by the sill/jackingpoint and a bubble on the paint just above sill. Dream spec for me shame about the price.. http://www.4starclassics.com/bmw-e39-m5-for-sale-9/

    one of the best combos imo and the ultra rare manual sport.... wowowowowow .. nice to see premium tyres on the car.
  14. E39 Auto gearbox

    Can you trust someone to not disturb anything when changing the oil? I would not trust just any old garage personally it would need to be an auto specialist. If you want to do work on your gearbox then imo there is no point just changing just the oil and filter if your going to touch it then a full service, changing solenoids, seals, torque converter this that and the other, something about magnets as well - you need a proper auto specialist to do it. to do a proper gearbox service will cost £300+ for me oil and filter alone are not worth it.
