    The " Golden Nugget " BMW E34 540i/6T BH15021

    Hi Dave It's been a little annoying really ... We were waiting for the welder to confirm the date of the welding for the Nugget . It went from May to September and then the welder asked for more pictures to remind him of the job. Which at this point the job jumped from £1400 to 2000K and 5 months time lost. The original welder that complete TBL has sadly finished working so was putting our trust in a new lad So the hunt is on for another welder or might just wait until the weather gets better and have a go with our mig. I have been purchasing new suspension and body panels So once started the transformation should be pleasing We have also found a couple of E38's 728's to keep us going One's the winter hack and the others going for sale soon ( Enjoyed France so rot free) I enjoy the pictures you post of the M5 interior ... Hope the fleet is fine

    E39 rusty jacking point

    The best prevention is to remove as much of the rust effected area, and once welded fill the inner sill with a rust proofing product.

    LKM questions-The truth is out there....

    I would remove the adjusters wiring plug from the lamps if the adjusters are faulty ... as base models had no adjusters anyway.

    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.
