    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.

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

    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

    Birds eye maple trim

    I wouldn't take much notice of the different colours. The BEM glovebox strip I have in front of me has the part number 8126313 on the back, which according to the parts file is BUBINGA HOCHGLA!
  21. Part 4, which for the M43 is (I think) 13711739576 is 35 euros from BMW Classic. https://shop.bmw-classic.de/bmw-classic/en_US/original-bmw-parts/13-fuel-preparation-and-control/131439-volume-air-flow-sensor/page1.html?SearchParameter=%26VehicleTypeKeys%3Dall_or_TID_HG11_or_TID_HG12

    OEM Velour floor mats

    No, Genuine BMW mats don't have a heel plate, the carpet underneath does though.

    Advice please viewing a E34 M5

    What concerns me is the letter giving the insurance valuation as £25K which he's using to justify the price. I always thought insurance valuations were higher than market prices. Best check that out first and do your own market research. To take an average M5 and get ir restored properly is going to cost around £25K -£30K so this has to be a minter to justify the price.

    525iX won't start

    Actually 12141427006 is a 3.3.1 Motronic Unit. See the link below. http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=HJ82-EUR-12_1991_E34_BMW_525ix&diagId=12_1689#12141427006 I have here a 12141703563 which superceded to a 12141703724 which is listed in the link above. It's from a Sept 93 build auto iX and should be minus EWS. It should work in your car and also delete the EWS problem as it simply won't be looking for an EWS signal, please PM me your address and I can get a price for postage. Cheers Geoff

    Sensible BMW tech - running a classic BMW rather than a modern BMW. Couldn't do that repair to an E60 or later very easily
