    Future plans include..... Take the car back to the paint shop to address some small bits and re machine polish. Recaro front seats similar to the 20 jahre seats Redo the rest of the exhaust system and delete the cats Get the car remapped Convert to an aluminium radiator and electric cooling fans Re trim the back seats and door cards Upgrade the front brakes Delete air pipes in the exhaust manifold and ceramic coat Replace the oil cooler Replace all hard Brake and fuel lines Convert to 535i air con lines and bracket The list goes on and on but i think ill take a break for now

    I then pulled the inlet off to have a 2nd attempt at getting it painted up nicely. Whilst inlet was off i addressed some other jobs..... Had the alternator refurbished Fitted a new Bosch stater motor and replaced various hoses like the brake booster and the some coolant lines. Also added a 12in sub in a small box That's pretty much up to date, the car now drives better than ever and the lightened flywheel has made a huge difference, really happy with the car now .... but still a long list things i want to do in the future...

    The car then went up to Dave @ Classic MD Autos to fit one of his lightened flywheels and various other jobs, big thanks to Dave here! As is my luck the sump was diagnosed as having cracked and a replacement item was fitted, New clutch, lighted flywheel and new rear main seal fitted. Dave also deleted my SLS Fitted my 535 PAS pump And fitted the rear Koni's + H&R converted to a 535 PAS hose/reservoir setup Also upgraded to a new 20mm Rear anti roll bar And refreshed the diff oil

    Its been a little while since ive updated this, things have been a bit hectic but still making progress on the car Shortly after getting the car back together and polished up to enjoy the end of the summer i manged to break the gear linkage I got this fixed and whilst in there i fitted the shorter of the two E60 545i "short shifters" which is p/n 373...... i hated it and quickly swapped it out for the p/n 261 which is slightly longer and a huge improvement over the stock feel! Then the car tried to set fire to itself The fuse for the heated rear window melted, i think i had a lucky escape and the damage to the wiring wasn't that bad, replaced the fuse box casing + a small amount of rewiring....all sorted. Im now running without the rear heated window fuse and some googling tells me its not an uncommon on E34's and E32's. I then treated the car to a long overdue tyre upgrade I have to say the improvement is huge... money well spent Courtesy of Dave @ Classic MD Autos i upgraded to Black 3.8 M5 Kick plates, i think they look much better than the original 3.6 grey items.

  9. BMW E34 M5 S38B36 Restoration

    Perhaps a dead Mirror control switch? Mine have stopped working since i stripped my doors apart and rebuilt them, i have a strong feeling its the switch since it fell apart into a million pieces when i took it off the car Mines got the memory seats/mirrors + heated seats and the switch is different to normal and NLA from BMW and i cant track down a 2nd hand replacement as yet

    Front suspension now fitted and it drives so much better than before no more crashing over bumps, next up im fitting my 535i power steering pump, deleting the SLS and renewing the rear suspension, will fit my new parcel shelf whilst im there (long over due). After that ive got plans to delete the air pump, fit a lighter flywheel and recon the alternator, then a few bits to sort on the interior. Not sure the to do list will ever end but im still enjoying the journey I spent several hours of polishing and waxing this weekend, a few pics....

    I'm in the process of changing out my front shocks to Koni yellows and H&R's. Almost there ... but the original suspension was totally screwed. Crud and rust from the shock tower and those bump stops more crud Will get some photos up once ive finished in the next couple of days, cant wait to drive it with the new bits on BMW main dealer are holding me up!! over 9 days now to get the top suspension support/metal ring that sits under the main nut, they showed 2 in stock in the UK, the next day they tell me 1 in stock one from Germany
