    New to E34

    Welcome to the forum, I run my 93 520 as a daily, mechanically it’s great. Biggest issue for me is bits of trim like the door cards that let it down. Rust is the killer, thankfully mine is pretty much rust free.

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Haven’t seen an e34 / e32 around Aberdeen for a long time, only maybe 2 or 3 e36’s in the last year. So here’s my freshly washed 520.... never know, might even get my e36 back on the road in the next year.....

    Very nice! Exactly the same interior as mine. Been searching for replacement rear door cards (that aren’t knackered) for 4 years, hens teeth. Grown to love the blue, nice to have a wee change from black.

    Love this. We’re the callipers a straight fit, no Master Cylinder upgrade required?

    Hi all!

    I’d love to put an m52 2.8 into my e34, but I think I’d feel horrible turfing out a perfectly good lowish miles m50 2.0 thats easily good for another 100k

    Hi all!

    Fantastic. That will nip on. Are you doing the work yourself?

    Try manually manipulating it from the engine bay, see if it returns instantly. I had it on my 320 after some work getting done, when the re routing of the throttle cable wasn’t sitting perfect and it was just enough to create the resistance required to make it sticky.

    Does it only do it on the move or does it do it at idle too? Eg sticky throttle cable?

    Eek, that’s a wee bit disappointing. I’m sure your quite capable of cleaning a mat, but here’s some inspiration.....

    Stunning car, up there with my favourite E34’s, sad to see it leave the forum, but sounds like it’s going to a good home.
  14. Evening folks, my sigma alarm fob battery appears to have finally given up. (1993 E34 520i) Anyone know what’s required to replace the battery ie is it a simple replacement or is it a solder in job. Couldn’t really find much on line about them. The only number on it is MPT 1340, but when you google that it comes up with just about every sigma alarm fob ever made! Any guidance appreciated before I hack it to bits and make an ar5e of it, i’ve heard some of these fobs can be prone to losing ‘memory’ if you don’t complete the battery swap quickly. Thanks!

    Welcome buddy!
  16. Looking for all 3 mouldings, for an e34 saloon rear bumper (the rear centre one is the priority if that’s what you have), I don’t mind if they are a bit faded, but must be scuff free. Must be smooth finish, not textured. Let me know if you have any available. Cheers.

    E34 540i 6-Speed - with Schnitzer bits

    Stunning car! I’ve been trying to find that blue leather interior in good condition for years haha! How did you find the dash swap? The schnitzer bits too...

    Cost v Benefit

    Very very interested to follow your progress as I have a very tidy 520 auto which is a wee bit asthmatic.... Also how you get on with Angus. I’d go to a manual as well from auto so might be a few more tweaks required. I have an M52 328 engine and gearbox waiting to go in my 3 series, which I could maybe convince myself to get something a bit more exotic for that too haha!
