    Suspension question

    It's due to Engine size (weight) and the spec of the E34 ... Standard or M-Tec / Sports suspension. But be careful because depending on the production year, The front top mounts might be different,. That's excluding the M-Tec Suspension. So just order the struts that match the year and engine size and you should be fine

    E34 power problems

    I would first check the intake gaiter hose to the air flow meter It might be worth checking the rubber gaiter off the car for splits etc. When the air flow meter is failing the signs can be low down power loss/stumbling at low revs . You will not tell by just unplugging the wiring loom unless the air meter has totally failed. Because the car's ECU will run the engine on safe/get me home mode. If the car would not start and you unpluged the MAF and the engine fires up ... It's the MAF sensor.

    E34 N/S inner and outer sills

    Hi Euro Car Parts sell the outer sills and are fine with a good thickness of steel and have used them myself. The inner sills are only available from BMW. Well the passenger-side is still available, But the drivers is N/A and were around £130 each. The ECP outer sills are around £50 each.

    Good/best E39 brake brands

    Mtec use Mintex brake disc blanks and do work/ last well We have used them for years and never had an issue. Our friend uses his 540/6 on track days and again has never had issues, and believe me does use those brakes hard.
