    Trackday e34s anyone ??

    I love a good E34 but as a road car rather than a track car. I get the most enjoyment from sub 1000kg cars on track as they change direction so well and generally have more feel. I suppose they might be quite fun on some of the more open tracks like Silverstone and Spa but for me i’d want one for the road.

    Sold to a couple of real car enthusiasts. I hope it’s good fun for you. Hope you get sorted Gareth, the car is staying pretty local so you may get another chance in the future.

    I don’t know about that Scott, highlight of the MOT was a brake line splitting. It’s a rough diamond! Your car looks to be a great one, i’d Love one in that sort of condition.

    Interesting, thanks Kevin, i’ll not rip it out for now. I’m weighing up my options at the moment, I really need to get underneath and see how much welding is needed. I gave the boot a clean, small steps but it already looks better. Then I started the engine and, oh my, the noise is fantastic even though the tailpipe looks ridiculous!

    It felt like putting on a favourite pair of shoes. Even in its current state it feels great, lots of feel, plenty of power and lots of lovely V8ness. The 545i is in better condition, far more competent in almost every respect but ultimately it doesn’t have the feel that any e34 has and I prefer the e34 for my sins. i believe that there is a lovely lsd fitted at the factory Kevin, no idea if it still locks or not but it needs a fluid and gasket change at the least. I really don’t know what to do with it, it would take a good chunk of money to get the bodywork sorted and a decent respray along with all of the trim pieces. I know it needs a bit if welding as well as some other small jobs before it passes an MOT. The previous owner wanted it to survive, that’s my main priority so if someone fancies a project i’m All ears.

    Here we have a bit of a rarity, the one and only Kashmir beige example of an already rare car. It has 269340 miles on the clock but driving it you’d never guess. The body is a completely different story. There are many badly applied shades of beige paint on the car and there’s some rust issues. It’s had some welding done in the past and I can see that the rear of the passenger sill will need attention before the next MOT.

    That’s such a shame. Glad you liked mine though, I hope that it’s a good substitute.
