  1. Advice please viewing a E34 M5

    What’s the usual course of action if your gearbox fails? Its unlikely you can get another one? Why can’t this be rebuilt? Parts no longer available?

    Oh dear. Would it not have been cheaper to rebuild the engine? If you don’t mind me asking how much was the engine from BMW? Was it a comple unit block and head?

    E34 M5 pricing doesn’t seem to be consistent. At 25k this seems rich even for the b38. Although in Germany they are going way above this but there’s always a premium demand there for the right cars. Also so it’s had a tow bar fitted. Always stayed clear from cars with tow bars. Not to say anything is wrong with it. Just one of my annoyances.

    Based on the cost of new jacking points I decided at making this myself. Having no reference of what it actually looks like apart from pictures it seems to fit well including once the sill is in place. Pic shows it it being held with a magnet for now will weld it in properly once I’ve sealed, painted and treated the previous work behind it.

    Hi yeh I’ve cut the rear section to see the condition of the jacking points and they are fine. I think im being too obsessive about replicating the Bmw jacking point. Being thick metal it would be very difficult to replicate. I think I’ll have to come up with my own design and go from there. I’ll post my progress.

    Thanks fiveoh as you can see from my pic I had to cut quite high up the strengthener to repair the inner sill. I think the only solution is to buy the a-pillar and cut it. It’s a £250 part each. i agree replacing the a-pillar is way too much hassle.

    I’m after the jacking point strengtheners for both front sides of the car. Can anyone help? I believe the a pillar which can be bought from Bmw at an eye watering £200 per side has this. Can someone please confirm this is the case? Anyone know of an alternative? Pic shows what I need circled in yellow.

    Hello, im after e34 jacking point strengthens for both front sides. Can anyone help? Thanks Pic shows what I need

    So i've done a bulk of the work but now comes the jacking point it self. After throughly reviewing the shapes and looking at picture online of what this actually looks like i've come to the conclusion this this is far too complex to make. It would be possible by making multiple pieces and welding but this would take a long time and I wouldn't trust its integrity. So i'm on the hunt for clean jacking points for both sides of the front. Anyone have these spare? FiveOh what did you do for these parts?

    I've taken measurements but i'm mainly using the straight edge of the existing lower sill as a guide and before final welding will use the wing as a guide to make sure its all in line. I've got some ideas for the jacking point but not started that fabrication work just trying to fab all the inner parts first, i've kept all the cut outs and these should be of use. My final jacking point was completely shot so I don't actually know what it looks like as a complete unit so I'm hoping the passengers side is a bit better. For welding I'm using upol copper weld primer. For sealing i'll probably use stone chip then maybe hammerite and treat with wax oil. I'll be using dynax s-50 to treat all the inner sill parts before welding the sill cover back on.

    Looking great, what future plans do you have for the car? I've never met Dave but can say he's always been very helpful to me and has a wealth of knowledge on these cars. If I didn't do the work myself he's likely one of the few people I'd trust to do the work for me.
