    A ‘P’ plate e34.

    Took a few years for the dealer to sell that then! Guess production still stopped in June 1996 despite the odd R and S plate?

    Maybe not as rare as I thought then!

    A ‘P’ plate e34.

    Hello, While looking at old photos with my girlfriend I found her late farther had bought new an e34 touring similar to mine, I was surprised to see it as a ‘P’ plated car. Guess this was a rare beast as it was registered after the last models were made in June 1996 (please correct me if i’m wrong!). I looked via the ‘MOT history check’ page on the DVLA’s website and it no longer seems to be on the road sadly. Thought I’d share as it caught my eye! Kit

    M5 valet today. Results

    A very nice motor indeed. There’s a bloke looking for an M5 for a photo shoot (topic on the main page).

    Headlight bulb swap.

    Hello, I now live in the countryside and have found that my headlights / full beam (standard Halford bulbs I think) don’t travel far enough and don’t feel bright enough generally for the roads around here. 1. What bulbs do you recommend (that fit in the standard fitting), seen some GE halogen ones that say the are ‘90% brighter’ than standard so was thinking of getting them. 2. Is there a guide to changing headlight bulbs? I’m less of a mechanic than most of you but can handle simple jobs like this. Thanks Kit
  6. Bluetooth works well, as long as your device has Bluetooth turned on before the stereo turns on it connects almost instantly. No trouble talking on the move. Feels well made generally. Only issue is the person that fitted it for me (bit of wiring needed to be tidied up after some bad work by the previous owner) probably didn’t connect the wire that lights up the buttons. Only the screen lights up (a sort of orange). Does not stick too far out the dash either. Thanks Kit

  9. Hello. As a man who likes the factory look I wanted to replace the after market stereo that came with my late 90’s Touring. But I wanted Bluetooth so went on a mission to find something that felt right. In the end found a Continental unit and had it shipped from Germany. Apart from having the silver surround on the volume knob painted black (I’m that picky) it fitted right in. Search ‘Continental bluetooth car radio’ and some options will come up if you fancy turning your e34 into a massive phone. Thought I’d post incase your looking for something similar. Sounds great too! Kit

    Door lock issue

    It locks when using the key in the door. however it didn’t open correctly when unlocked using the key in the drivers door. Sometimes it works with the remote, sometimes not. It’s quite stiff when pushing down with a finger. Any advice welcome. Happy new year. Kit

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    I went to a good old fashioned petrol station mechanical car wash and got rid of 6 months of dust and dirt.

    Door lock issue

    Hello. My 1995 Touring has what I presume is the original remote central locking and alarm fitted. Only the passenger door stick doesn’t always go down so stops the car from locking itself. Is this a simple fix (as in it just needs freeing up with some wd40) or is there a bigger problem lurking under the door card? Quite annoying as have to open the back door and reach to manually push it down which then locks all the doors. No issues opening it up. Apologies for raising such a boring problem. Kit
