    E34 gear position indicator

    Ah well it used to be £100, obviously they are running out of stock now so have put the price up.

    E34 clear rear lights and front indicators

    I will be breaking a car shortly that does have these. Send me a PM please.

    E34 gear position indicator

    Calypso E34, go to BMW for that part, it's still available and costs about £100. Any 2nd hand part is going to be iffy.

    E12 M535i

    Price new £13745, yours for £29995. Perhaps BMW should start making them again!

    High mile 518i , why not?

    518's are great to drive provided you avoid the Achilles heel of the 518i, trying to drive one with a full load one up a steep hill. That's when you will find out the shortcomings, otherwise I agree with all the comments above about how nice it is to drive around town.

    37k for an E34

    Seconded, definitely no. Massive dealer markup is in that price.

    Project bites off more than can chew

    When I saw it, yes it was a shed. His garage is full of E30, the E34 doubled up as the shed!

    If the dash is both, you might be missing a bit.

    Sir Anthony Regents-Park, I see from various E34 brochures that you are right and that BMW did take the Er out and put the Ing in. But I was referring to the car, not the model, so I used the correct noun to describe the vehicle. If Simon gets it working, then when he uses it, he is "touring". Just because BMW don't know the difference between a verb and a noun doesn't mean we should all make the same mistake. They are German after all, what what. P.S. It's cold and wet here and I have nothing better to do than pontificate on this!

    I also have in front of me a folder containing a genuine BWM electrical trouble shooting manual. Fortuitously it is dated 1992 and covers both the 525i and 535i. Am hoping it will prove useful to you. Geoff

    Simon, at last we can talk about this car. I've seen it in the flesh, when done, it's going to be one fantastic tourer. Anyway, first off which loom is M30 and which is M50? You can see here that the M30 535i has three main looms, the front loom, the rear loom and the dash loom. http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/E34-Sedan/Europe/535i-M30/L/browse/vehicle_electrical_system/main_wiring_harness_3#1391492_1 Here's the M50 main wiring diagram, interstingly the front looms were common to 525i and 535i. http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/E34-Sedan/Europe/535i-M30/L/browse/vehicle_electrical_system/main_wiring_harness_3#1391492_1
