    Wanted - E34 540i6

    It's been 3 years since I sold my 540i6 because of lack of storage. If anyone is thinking of selling - PM me.

    1995 E34 540i6

    Hi all, After living with my E46 oil burner whilst I renovated a house and commuted to work, Ive moved considerably closer so I can afford to drive something that has character and excites me. I made the journey towards Newcastle to pick up M97 KPK from carl (cable guy) last month... to pick the car up on a cold, windy, wet night and drive the 3.5 hrs west towards Cairnryan so that I could catch the 04:00 ferry back to Northern Ireland. The plan is to use the car as my daily until I get either an e39 530d touring or an e38 740is (auto) to make the daily commute in traffic more tolerable. Plus I cant stop look at E38's with style 95 wheels... I picked the car up with a set of Rondell 0058 wheels and Full Bilstien suspension kit fitted. The plan is to refurb them when I can take the 540 off the road. The bodywork also needs a bit of attention which will either result in a full arctic silver respray or a silver wrap of some sort. The fitted SSK isnt as bad as I thought for daily driving and the clutch is nice and light... On the agenda to fix: - The computer is constantly throwing up light faults from the front dips to the rear numberplate lights. (no idea how to fix this) - washer jets (dont work at all) - might be the motor that still makes a noise or it might be a hose connection. - Cruise Control fix (no response). - Number plate is being changed for a NI style one (in progress). - Black Grille - Amber indicators (fronts) - OEM radio (in progress) If this doesnt work out - Ill go for a modern alpine or pioneer bluetooth headunit (sub in the boot job)! - Fix rear cigarette socket - service (no history of the last one). - Scuttle panel was scuttling. (now fixed) - Wipers are creaking when they move. (sounds like a motor issue). - Wheel refurb - respray or bodywork fixes including dents. - Dox matrix dash lights. - Engine cover - new induction hose (currently covered in duck tape) - If anyone has a spare - let me know Thanks in advance for help and replies to any questions I have regarding some of the fixes. The night I collected it: As it sits now: Sleeping:

    I was in exactly the same position. I should have bought storage somewhere but I had every intention and put a lot of effort into buying it back. One of my biggest regrets for sure..

    I tried to buy it back last year. Bought a private reg and organized a transporter to the guys house. Long story short he messed me about. A few months later a guy contacted me off this forum to say the car had been repossessed scrapped. The engine and gearbox went to the eastern bloc and the rest of the car was crushed. One of my biggest regrets for sure

    Anyone rocking HIDs?

    Can someone post a few links to reputable HID kits that work in their E34's or ones that you would recommend? Might be useful for people reading the thread in the future....

    1995 E34 540i6

    Thanks, yes - it's the one off ebay. It's had £1700 spent on it in 6 months. Everything from rear shocks to window rubbers. It's a genuine individual model with red and black interior. Going to change the 7" oem bmw screen for an android one and the new numberplate holders have been ordered. I'll put on the original headlights but the chav ones don't look too bad! Especially at night. Can't understand why anyone would want to make it loud so it's going to be as standard as possible. Going to get some bits resprayed especially the front splitter.

  22. Hi Guys, Im looking for a 2008 or younger 550i. Just wondering if anyone knows if the post '08 LCI facelift models have a proper manual gearbox or a dual clutch "manual" with that funny looking cobra style gear gear selector? Theres an '06 on flebay at the minute - but it looks a bit tatty.

    Searching for a 2008 550i Manual

    My budget depends on the car. I wouldn't offer much for the silver one in the OP because of history of damage and general tattyness. If I could find an 08 reg manual for a reasonable and realistic price I'don't be keen enough.

    Searching for a 2008 550i Manual

    Thanks for the reply guys... Advice taken. I'll stay away from an e60/61 and go for another e39
