    Good find! Bargain (unless it snaps in your barrel then not so bargain)

    E34 1991 525i non start

    Yeah I'd say the same. Lights dim a bit. My video: https://youtu.be/DboiPE9uINg Can't start it anymore but don't recall it ever doing it hot. Does it with a known good battery but previous times a jumper hasn't made a difference. Think I'm going to check earth's next.

    E34 1991 525i non start

    1991, BMW E34, 525i M50 It's been intermittently not starting for a little while now. Always left it, or charged the battery, and next time i've come to it it has started. Now it's not.... Battery freshly conditioned and sitting at 12.5v. Key in position one goes down to 12.2. Key in "start" position goes to 11.8v (and the dashlights dim down) but it doesn't even attempt to crank over. No noises from starter solenoid either. Just tried a fresh battery from a working car and exactly same behaviour. Where do I start diagnosing?! Starter motor?

    E34 525i 1994 running cold

    Hi @Flandy! Fan feels good, exactly how Haynes describes when cold (tiny amount of resistance) and can stop it with my hand when running cold. No A/C, so no extra fan to my knowledge.

    E34 525i 1994 running cold

    1994 BMW E34 525i Touring Noticed the temps are staying at around 1/4 or lower, so I've changed the thermostat with a new genuine BMW 88C one (matching original). When trying to run it up to temperature to get it all bled/checked over the temps are still taking forever to even rise past the blue. Heaters are warm, rad top hose is warm but bottom is cold. Radiator is stone cold to the touch. What should I be looking at next?!

    Alpina replica bumpers

    Sounds promising on the fitment front then. Totally get what you’re saying about the cracking issue though. Was just quire tempting at 150 posted.
