    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?!

    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 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 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 red rear lights legal in uk

    Yep I did it on mine years ago with tint spray. The indicators flashed red. Not ideal.

    Alpina replica bumpers

    Anyone tried the replica Alpina bumpers available on eBay from Latvia? How good is the fit and finish?

    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.
  17. Got a 1994 E34 touring with black cloth interior. Three of the doorcards have gotten really bad this summer with the vinyl shrinking over the arm rest. I plan to slice it and reglue it, anyone done similar? Any pics?
  18. So I've ordered the usual clips to repair a window that goes down wonky, pulled the doorcard off but they're actually fine. The problem I believe is the round nylon clip that actually holds the mech into the horizontal runner. To the bottom left of #15 here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=HJ62-EUR-06-1994-E34-BMW-525i&diagId=51_0408 What is the method for fixing this one? It looks like the mech just pops into it, but is there a metal clip that holds it in? Both rear windows have the same symptoms so something is a bit weird.
  19. Ooer that’s annoying! My metal ball appears to have popped out the plastic socket, for a temporary attempt does it just pop back in with force?

    E34 facelift or not?

    Hi guys trying to work out if my car is a 'facelift' or not, for the sake of finding the right replacement door Year: L Shape: E34 525i auto touring Engine: M50 Vanos Mirrors: Later style ones Bonnet/grille: Narrow Airbag: No Do I basically need to find a door with the same wing mirror design to ensure compatibility?! Cheers

    E34 facelift or not?

    Drivers front door and a drivers wing. Trying to find in calypso red to keep the costs down. Missus only had the car 3 or so weeks before an uninsured driver decided to modify it in a carpark, sigh. Good info on the "facelift" stuff, hopefully if I pick a donor car with later style mirrors then I'll be all good then.
