  3. I'm a uni student mate so on a bit of a budget hence why I can't look to get the M5 or 540 etc, was looking to spend just under or around £1000 for a standard model such as this one which is in good condition and low mileage, hopefully in a few years when I'm earning properly I'll be able to get the high end models!
  4. It's a 1990 model made - I've attached a pic of the engine
  5. Hi Guys, Been wanting to buy an E34 to have a collectable/occasional use car. Seen one on sale which is a 1990 525i SE 4 speed auto. It's done 96k backed up with history and it also has a very clean MOT history (so mainly straight passes). Has all the usual SE spec such as AC/Sunroof etc and even heated front seats, its in a glacier blue colour with matching blue interior! Anyway my question is, what sort of common issues do I look out for? I don't have too much mechanical knowledge so I want to know for things I can spot fairly easily. The advert also says its a more reliable version than the later VANOS model, so I need more info about VANOS models and why this is more reliable etc. Also, what sort of price would you pay for an E34 like this? (I'm in the UK) Any help is appreciated! Many thanks Ash
