    Charging a new battery

    +1 Agreed

    Is there still such a thing as a dirt cheap e34?

    Agreed. I'm currently in the process of attempting to register a car in France and it's a right p.i.t.a Personally I would buy a Spanish E34 rather than import a rhd car over there. Firstly as mentioned it's a pig to change documents over and secondly, it's going to be a hell of lot less corroded than most UK car of similar age/price

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Probably best to start your own thread in the project section with photos etc

    Guess the mpg

    For me it's bonkers how some consider an E60 as an old car now but then again some are 14/15 years old now which is crazy! I'll bite, 48.9 mpg

    Good effort. It's not that bad and you you've done a great job of repairing it. Take your time and it will be good for years to come

    525tds and 525d flywheels and clutches

    Indeed. Interested myself in this project as an M51 6 speed is pretty unheard of. Good luck and please keep us updated

    E34 M50B25TU Bosch Alternator

    I think I managed to fit an E36 starter motor on my M50'd E34 a few years back. Had to swap some parts over as it wasn't an exact match but it got me out of trouble as I was in France at the time and the local motor factors wanted ridiculous money for a new one!

    Valves like this?

    Wow that's impressive. Never seen one "eaten up" like that before

    E34 M50B25TU Bosch Alternator

    Just out of curiosity what's the issue with your alternator?! Depending on what exactly is wrong with it, they can sometimes be refurbished.

    E34 M50B25TU Bosch Alternator

    I think my 540i Touring had a 140A one fitted too from memory.

    Twin Solex Carb problem

    Agreed. And when removing the mixture screws be sure to count the number of turns to know where you started from.

    The " Golden Nugget " BMW E34 540i/6T BH15021

    Sometimes you just gotta prioritise on the "to do" list and systematically go through what needs doing first. When you have the tank down, I'd renew the fuel breather lines as mine were rotten out, oddly enough as other fuel and brake lines were absolutely fine. Wouldn't bother with OEM steel either, go for either copper or cupronickel as far easier to work with

    Slightly knackered e34.....

    Put it on the 'bay and say it's a barn find project and you'll probably make a few quid

    The beauty of owning a touring!

    E39 535i

    Similar figures to my M60b40. Maybe slightly less around town but 29 mpg+ achievable on run

    Hella Ignition Coils views ?

    No idea I'm afraid Carl. Hella are normally pretty decent but all depends on price difference. Why not give them a go? Could be worth a punt.... What I have noticed recently however is that Hella have two lines of products. Standard and their "premium" line of products which begs the question are they increasing to source their components from the far East on "standard" or budget products

    Passenger rear light for an e34

    Tims on here definitely worth a try. If not Dongiov might be persuaded to part with one

    Nice, if You Like lots of Red!

    Not a fan of that one at all. I think the whole thing is pretty ghastly, and the seller is completely delusional with asking price imho.
