    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Yeah same with mine, was quite a bit of steering twirling involved before I found the perfect spot

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    This weekend I finally did my gearbox oil change on the 6speed, used a german oil, Ravenol MTF-2 75W80 which meets BMW MTL1 and 2 specifications. The label on the gearbox says ATF, but my mates 6spd gearbox says MTL1. Shifts do feel a bit smoother, but I'll have to drive the car before I can be sure. I also adjusted the steering play, its quite a job on the V8s, got it done in about 2 hours. Steering is much better but there is still a little play, think the box is a bit beyond saving.

    Wanted single Alpina Classic wheel

    Thanks Mick Ive looked at Alloy wheels direct, they no longer have the 9.5J 17" wheel available. I am based in South Africa where Alpina never really featured, so the main stealers wont have any Alpina parts available. but will go ask them

    Wanted single Alpina Classic wheel

    Yeah Ive been looking for a while and Im starting to think it might be an option to modify a 8.5J wheel into a 9.5J... I will go measure them up, but I suspect there is half an inch on the front and half an inch on the back. What would you want for a single wheel?

    BMW e34 South Africa

    Thanks guys No that would be impossible to find here in South Africa, so Im going to supercharge the M60...that will be the only non-Alpina part of the car but should give me the same speed

    Also I installed a S3,15 LSD on the car last weekend, it has really transformed the car from a lazy cruiser to an energetic cruiser
