    M30 E34

    Trying to sell it this side of the pond market for big engine cars must be totally gone if it couldnt be sold in the uk as its still on uk plates i would say its the same owner also when a car comes into this country you are suppose to go straight to tax office to pay vrt to put irish plates on it if you delay you are charged for every day you dont. Looks a clean car & manual aswell

    Windscreen Replacement

    Ok thanks for that i am going to try remove it myself i see there is a couple of tools to do it & let a installer fit it as i have to get a rust spot fixed on windscreen frame before fitting. I think the wire would be better for cutting it out as the glue would be gone too hard for the blade puller cutter. Windscreen removal removal tool

    Windscreen Replacement

    Looking for a bit of info on windscreen's are the y the same windscreen's fitted to early e34 as late model e34 as i am trying to save a windscreen out of a late e34 for my 89 e34 . I am fixing up my 89 after 6 years in the garage & it needs a new screen to pass the test as its not in test & not insured i cant claim a new screen untill i pass test so will a late screen fit it as the doors are different in both late & early model does this change the shape of the screen.
