  1. OEM Velour floor mats

    No, Genuine BMW mats don't have a heel plate, the carpet underneath does though.
  2. 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.
  3. 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I have here a 12141703563 which superceded to a 12141703724 which is listed in the link above.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
  4. 525iX won't start

    Sensible BMW tech - running a classic BMW rather than a modern BMW. Couldn't do that repair to an E60 or later very easily
  5. 525iX won't start

    Hello from a fellow iX owner. If it is an immobiliser problem, I would get the DME chip recoded and delete EWS rather than repair the EWS. I would also try unplugging the alarm system, these aren't £40K cars anymore so you don't really need the protection (and problems) that they offer and you can still protect the car with a steering wheel lock. Does the car have a double sunroof? If so, look for water ingress problems as the sunroof channels block and water gets where it's not supposed to be causing no end of weird problems.
  6. E34 M5 Rear SLS Shock Leak

    Micmike313 had his rear SLS shocks refurbished by Nagegast, see
  7. e34 airbag slip ring

    Is that an airbag light at the bottom of the middle spoke?
  8. e34 airbag slip ring

    I ask because that part number you give was in use up to May 1994.

    Aziz, can you please post a photo of what you are after? Geoff
  13. Thanks Blackman, nice to meet you today and to see your steed. Keep up the good work.
  14. Sword removal

    Hi Five-Oh, good to hear from you. According to the parts file, the microfilter was fitted to cars built from June 1990 so as an added bonus, all the owners of early E34's get to breathe in lots of diesel particulates. http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/E34-Sedan/Europe/535i-M30/R-A/browse/heater_and_air_conditioning/microfilter/ Happy days.
  15. Sword removal

    What is it located or inserted into? Can you push it back in and take a photo of it in place?
  16. Sword removal

    I think you need to take off the cover that's it's located in. You will need a torx screw driver, probably 20 or 25 for the bottom screw, then twist the lock at the top and once the cover is loose, the whole lot will come out. You can then change your pollen filter.
  17. Wow, old thread alert. Just had a look, this is all I could find on UK Ebay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pair-of-Carbon-Fiber-Heated-Seat-Kits-for-89-95-BMW-E34-2x-cushion-warmer/122770597132?hash=item1c95b2a50c:g:NaYAAOSwESNZ7mB7 Try ebay.de
  18. Sword removal

    No, you shouldn't do. Least I didn't on my iX. Why are you taking the sword out anyway?
  19. My E34. 1989 535iA SE

    Olly, I test drove this car before Stuart, the PO, bought it, you definitely have a nice car there. One thing I would do is take the front wings off, when I inspected it on a ramp, I detected the start of corrosion on the undersides of the wings, a very common E34 problem. If it's just starting as I assessed it was, then I would simply wirebrush off any rust and hammerite the metal. The only other thing I would consider doing is replacing the wheels. The car is on genuine Sports suspension but my gut instinct is that most of the benefits of sports suspension are negated by those massive tyre walls on the 15" rims. Drop me a PM if you want to know more about the car, I know the previous owner before Stuart. Also did you get the spreadsheet that recorded all the service history?
  20. 525ix refreshed

    My pleasure, the first time I had driven a manual iX. Re the wheels, before you do anything to them, best to take the tyres off and see if the rims balance. I recently fitted new summer tyres, I had to find 8 rims to get 4 good ones, much to my surprise 4 rims were out of balance.
  21. 525ix refreshed

    Michael, am very pleased to see you have got it back again, Steve's been telling me all about it. I refurbished mine a few years ago and have never regretted it, they are great cars to operate. Mine's about to undergo more refurb, namely a new heat exchanger, heater fan, brake lines, EH lines, etc, am looking forward to getting it done. What was the final bill from NAgengast for the front shocks? Geoff
  22. I don't know if Tim Pollock has any but he's breaking E28's and so may do, contact him on 07770303005
  23. Drivers door handle

    You are welcome, just don't do it again!
  24. Drivers door handle

    Here's your parts file. http://bmwfans.info/vin/decoder?vin=Bc83858 You definitely need a 028. Contact Tim Pollock on 07770303005 for a replacement lock and handle. He has a car in at the moment of the right vintage.
  25. Drivers door handle

    Pm me the last 7 digits of your vin and I will have a look for you. The handle is part of the lock mechanism, you will need a replacement lock.
