  1. Welcome along Richard, nice to see you are still BMW Mad like me and bad to see you are turboless like me.
  2. No the previous owner did not have any other E34's but is a big BMW nut.
  3. Thanks. Hehe, have the clear indicators sorted. have a pair coming from the previous owner.
  4. Due to a huge weakness for all things BMW and an even bigger weakness for E34 5's and a huge weakness for tourings, I managed to buy this fantastic E34 530i touring. It has 98k miles, full history, auto, air con and some nice modifications from original spec. The colour is Maldives Blue. It drives fantastic being slightly lowered, strut brace and the larger lower profile tyres while retaining a huge comfort factor. Its a credit to its last owner, another BMW nut and and extremely nice guy. Plus the V8 rumble aint too bad either.
  5. Are you looking for a regular model or something a bit special? Is there a budget in mind?
  6. Wow, the car looks fantastic. Great to see you have put the effort into getting it looking good again.
  7. Wow gorgeous car, I am very jealous. Would love one like that.
  8. This is how it looks at the moment.
  9. Hi Tony, Value is very hard to put on one I guess. It was a relatively cheap car to buy but by the time it will be in A1 condition, it will be a rather expensive car. Parts are extremely difficult, or non existent to find. The arch extensions are non existent so the one thats missing has to be replicated. The graphics too. They are all RHD which is a bonus.
  10. Tony, here it is prior to the start of the restoration.
  11. My cousin has a 1976 530 MLE that is currently undergoing a full restoration. Will be very rare especially when restored.
  12. Ok then here you go. Here are a couple of pics of the Children.
  13. I damaged a knuckle on my left and a couple of weeks ago while sparring, I do Taekwondo. I threw a lead left hook punch and even with gloves on bounced my hand off my oponents head. While he was still slightly stunned, I followed with a spinning kick to his head, he was really stunned then. The damn knickle is still sore.
  14. I really like it, very nice. Fancy one like that some day.
  15. Can't say I have heard of that before. BMW South Africa built a lightweight 530 MLE in 1976. They built 200 or so of these and thats the only lightweight e12 I have heard of. There could be others.
