    M50 Gearbox

    I've got a 93 520i touring m50 gearbox for sale on ebay if it helps...

    MOT emissions

    Lambda, fuel filter, air filter, oil service. Did you drop the car off to be tested fully up to temperature? I believe Geoff had good experience with Cataclean https://www.cataclean.com/

    Random warnings 525SE

    Solder joints in the ccu?

    Trying to install tempomat

    For the tds you will only need the correct stalk for the later e34 (with or without airbag) I believe. There's no throttle cable on the tds. You can use tealoem to get part numbers and cross reference to other models / years

    Restoration project

    I think you are right, one auto iX allrad saloon and a manual. B10FWD or 2Jam and M4** ***. The manual was in Aberdeen and was in an accident. Owner lived on top of a hill and the handbrake failed / not put on enough / not left in gear and went backwards into a wall. The alloys are on my touring iX manual.

    525iX auto gearbox cable help for a new member

    Not had a left hand drive in front of me so can't answer the question I'm afraid. Probably best speak to a transmission specialist who may be able to make one up

    Identifying original floor mats!

    I'll get some pics up of my spare ones in the shed...

    525ix engine swap

    Baffle modding would make sense, the allrad is a square setup of 86bore and 86mm stroke

    Wheels for a E34 Ix?

    I've got a square set of 17" e36 alpina classics on mine that are et46 and 8J wide with 245/45 17 tyres. Slight rubbing on the inner arch at full lock so maybe 235 tyres would be better? There are websites where you compare the original and proposed wheels technically re wheel bearing and rolling radius. Alpina setup was very similar when I did my research.

    E34 540i/6T again

    My TDS auto has had the German ebay front suspension stuff on for what must be 3 years now without issue but that's not a v8 touring with manual box

    Dampness in a freshly purchased e34

    +1 on what 5 oh said Could also jbe the heater matrix also worth checking the pollen cabin filter, if it has one

    E34 touring bits wanted

    I may have the front section of exhaust from a 93 L the ball pins for dampers are best bought new from the dealer plenty of the glass dampers on eBay or AUTODOC (Stabilus are the oem manufacturer)
