    What have you done on your E34 Today

    After owning multiple E34’s in my life and after selling my last 525i Sport two years ago I couldn’t self hurting myself and bought another one! Glacier blue 525i, manual from 1992. Will start a new thread about it. Needs sills all jacking points, drivers side floor and rear wheel arches doing. Most likely full respray as well.

    Sunroof Drain checking advice

    Open the sunroof, park your car on a slight slope to use gravity when pouring some water at all four corners of sunroof cassette than observe if water comes out at the bottom of the front wings and rear sills. If water is not coming you have a blockage somewhere obviously.

    Rust under hood air grille - repair kits?

    These are integrated with the bonnet. Good body shop should shape a one for you and weld in. Or clean loose rust and treat it with good rust converter then apply a coat or two of epoxy primer. These are covered anyway by mentioned insulation and a seal on the edge.

    E32 740i with Hartge bits

    Great taste in cars and wheels sir! To top it up you would need Hartge A staggered wheels in 18".

    Non start issue

    I reckon fuel pump fuse was checked and it’s ok? I was happily driving my E28 a few months back when suddenly engine cut out. I tried to start it straight away but no joy. I couldn’t hear the pump priming when turning ignition on so I checked the fuse. It was looking good but under closer inspection I found one of the fuse ends shrunken into the plastic coating making no contact with terminal. I had a good spare so set off after a few minutes. These torpedo style fuses used to be made with porcelain now it’s plastic and generally poor quality. Maybe yours is furbed?

    Cooling loop behind grill?

    As above it’s steering pump fluid cooler. It doesn’t matter if car is LHD or RHD the pump, cooler, fluid lines are the same for both versions at least for M30 powered cars.

    Some BMW E28 parts

    Hi Cotswolds! Could you price up the list below for me? 51121867615 x 1 51129056462 x 1 51121867611 x 1 51121867612 x 1 Thanks!
  11. Must be one of the last ever produced, probably 2000cm3. Looks not that bad and seems to be complete. Shame seller tends to pull adverts out when is not happy with the price (based on one most recent negative comment). https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-BARN-FIND-1973-L-REG-NO-RESERVE-/264722627080

    You have a pm, thanks.

    E28 533

    Looks like a Recaro seat of some sort with missing headrest. There’s also front reg plate back base missing. Looks fresh and straight though.
  14. Very rare wheels. Pricey but I wouldn’t be surprised seeing them shipped to US or sold here for this money.

    Bonnet alignment

    Try to adjust it by playing with bonnet locking pins, those with springs mounted at the front end of the bonnet. They have some adjust ability in both directions. Mark your original position first just to have some reference point. i did my bonnet adjusting the above but also wings and rubber buffers controlling the height to finally set the gaps properly.
