    E34 M5 Touring - 1995/M 3.8

    Nice miles and looks to be in great condition... is it just me that finds Fjord Grey with Grey Leather so boring?! C.

    Performance exhaust

    Why...? It's a 4 Pot 2.0litre Smoker Saloon designed for comfort & economy. C.

    E34 540i touring

    I think if you tried to source a donor car and build/improve to the level of this car, it would cost similar if not more money. I personally don't think it's bad value compared with some of the overpriced "classics" advertised right now. C.

    E34 Alpina B10 3.5 - a real one

    "Unbelievable" being the operative word! £15-20k would be pushing it providing it is/was as good as it looks! C.

    Dakota leather care

    This is by far the best solution for modern auto leathers. All these conditioners etc. do nothing but sit on top of the synthetic top coat! After using lots of different products over the years, I came across the proprietor of LTT Leather on another forum who went into great detail explaining the finishing process on auto leather. I now using nothing but their products on my cars which give a lovely matt, new looking finish. Product I use: https://www.lttleathercare.com/product/auto-leather-care-kit/ C.

    Carl - do you still have my baby?

    Motor was purchased from forum member dan101smith. I believe it was destined for an e28 track car but plans changed and I jumped in. TBH I've forgotten about the car over the last couple of years as I have a few other cars which keep me occupied & entertained, however there is a chance that it could be sorted this year and ready for next... will see how things go. As for selling... never say "never". C.

    Carl - do you still have my baby?

    Hi Chris, Certainly do... Painted and s50 motor in and running and just waiting for an exhaust to be fabricated and engine wiring tidy up. Brake refresh and then back to me for a full Black Sport interior to go in. C.

    Rare F10/F11 examples

    San Marino Blue reminds me of Avus Blue which IMO needs the sun for it to pop. Violet M5 looks stunning with the Black/Cream(White) interior. C.
