    Front control arms - OEM or aftermarket

    I normally go for Meyle or Lemforder. I think the rear anti roll bar links had the bmw part number milled off

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Did you leave it be and settle or take it to David at CMD in the end?

    Calling the experts e34 B10 Allrad

    Looks like one has been lost in Denmark https://www.ebay.de/itm/184263554797
  4. Does this mean the self levelling suspension has been ditched and your car has 'standard' albeit alpina spec shocks and springs? The invoice states self levelling and sports in the BMW factory section I thought the same as Sharkfan with the 002 on the nameplate! The saloons were 94 m reg so maybe they were B10 3.0 003 and 004?

    Dangerous Wiper incident.

    Rear Tailgate wiring needs to be repaired I'd say for the wiper

    Krabi's 525i E34 - vine red 1989

    Going to be using this as my daily after Christmas so started undoing most of the work done in 2016 to replace the fuel lines, rear brake lines, rear brake dust shield (and therfore bearings).... And a little welding. Fuel tank dropped, exhaust off, dust shields off, drive shaft most of the way off

    520i M50tu to 525i M50tu

    Castrol edge synthetic 5w40 as per their online oil selector, its what BMW garages used to use I believe BMW garages now use Shell oils

    Bluetooth on CD43

    The amazon description could be clearer, I guess it was translated from German. I'm guessing the two modes are relating to the head unit - radio and Bluetooth adapter (formally CD changer). I guess what I want is not possible

    Bluetooth on CD43

    If you are listening to the radio and the phone rings, does the kit interrupt the radio and the call takes over when you accept it? (showing my age here, I don't have Spotify etc)

    Newbie intro

    https://www.c3bmw.co.uk/5-series/c/33?dynNav=Series::5;Model::E34;Product Category::Braking;Product Sub Category::Brake Pads; The more expensive textar pad is essentially OEM. Real Oem makes reference to textar t477 http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/E34-Sedan/Europe/525ix-M50/R/browse/brakes/rear_brake_brake_pad_wear_sensor/ The cheaper textar pad is configured for the aftermarket higher volume suppliers like euro car parts

    New owner here!

    Cotswold bmw are a sponsor of the forum Alternatively, you can find the part number using real Oem or bmwfans.info and then enter that into eBay, amazon, Google

    Cost v Benefit

    Did the 520 have a Siemens ecu and the 525i a bosch? So will the looms, sensors, maf etc have to be swapped also
