    BMW E34 520i For Sale!

    I've owned this car for just over 10 years and it was my daily driver for most of that. It then passed to my father who did not want to spend any money on it apart from keeping it on the road. Following his death in 2014, it was put on SORN and parked on a neighbour's drive. I now need to move it and I have to admit that I am not going to get around to its restoration any time soon. Before it rots away completely, I thought it best to give someone else a shot at recommissioning, restoring or for parts. The reason I kept it was because I think it must be one of the earliest E34s into the UK and because of the extensive receipts from 1996-2003, totalling over £7000. I also happen to think it's one of the nicest colour combinations I've seen for an E34. It is effectively a 3 owner car although the second owner merely bought it as a trade in then sold it to me. It has about 170,000 on the clock and was running when parked. The faults that I know on it are: Rear strut top mounts broken Fuel leak in supply line (caused by the guy who transported it to the driveway, his ramps were too steep and the car bottomed on the trailer Engine cuts out when full lock applied at low speed The interior is in generally good condition except for the drivers seat where the fabric on the seat base has split. All electrics, windows, sunroof etc., worked okay albeit a wee bit slow. The sunroof does not leak. The engine was pretty sweet but needs a good service and oil change, the cambelt should also be done. It would be great to see the old girl restored again to her former glory, the final picture in the gallery will show you what she looked like just after I bought her and cleaned her up. In reality of course, because she is just a standard 520i, she may be used only for parts. The car is advertised on Ebay too so I reserve the right to withdraw this ad at any time, should it sell there first. If you want to view the car, it is in Glasgow, G33. It will need to be trailered away. The Ebay auction starts at £50 so I would like at least that but I realise that it's not going to fetch much at all. I'd prefer to know that it was going to someone who can either use it for parts for their own project or are going to restore it and get it back on the road. It's a lovely car for a sunny day!
  2. Hi everyone I'm Matt! I owned an E39 540i (lpg system fitted) due to long drives for work. That sadly only lasted 9 months due to a fantastic MOT fail and was then passed on to a friend. Picture of the offending car: I do miss it's effortless pace and refinement (even if it did smell like farts due to the lpg system). So I may be looking for an E39 DD in the near future...! And the current car/project is a 1995 E34 525i Sport Auto, it needs a bit (probably a lot..) of rush sorting and a respray, but she'll do for now I've been posting a ride thread on Retro Rides so I'll copy that over soon. I'll have lost of questions in the near future I'm sure! Thanks
  3. Hello all. I take more photos of my own car than I do anything else. Figured since I love photography and my E34 so much, I'd dump my archive of stuff here! ^^ I won't post the old stuff, as I've already done that in my welcome thread, or you can look at them from my Flickr. I also update my Instagram daily should anyone want to follow me. My handle is @bally_san. Toodles.

    Interior: e34 or Original?

    My driver's seat has finally succumbed to the all-too-familiar driver's side bolster wear and needs to be replaced; unfortunately I've exhausted anywhere that has a decent replacement in the same colour / material (ebay (both UK & abroad), forums, breakers, Tim :-)), so I'm considering just replacing the whole lot with replacement seats from an E34. I would desperately love to keep it original, but I don't think this is going to be possible unless a decent one is broken / trashed anytime soon, so I think an E34 replacement is probably the best option. I know that fitting e34 seats is a fairly simple process that only requires some minor adaptions, but can the damage be repaired? the rest of the interior is unmarked and it would be a shame for it to go to waste!
  8. I hope this should be OK to post here but this post is mainly for those who don't know or are searching the Internet as I couldn't find anything anywhere on the matter not even in the bmw workshop manual. The flywheel locking hole is below the starter motor on the left side of the engine and has a little plastic bung in the hole (mine was yellow). Before attempting to remove the pulley it is advisable to remove the radiator. The crank vibration damper pulley is removed by first undoing the 8 little bolts in the front to remove the Aircon drive pulley. Then the crank bolt itself is a 22 mm socket and is removed in an anti clockwise rotation. It is a right hand thread (like most bolts) and I used a 1.2m breaker bar. Do not use an impact wrench or air ratchet. Once the bolt is removed everything should slip off, it may require a little leverage but only gently whist lightly tapping simultaneously with a rubber mallet. The air-conditioning pump bracket also has to be loosened to remove the lower timing case cover or removed but I had gas in my system so I loosened it off. If your are also removing the cylinder head as well as timing chain, the head bolts are an E12 female torx socket. You will need a minimum 150mm extension bar and a breaker bar this time I used a 400mm bar, it didn't need much force as they are at 30Nm plus a bit more. Do not use an impact wrench or air ratchet as this could shatter the casting, then it's game over. That is all.

  18. Car is locked and doors won't open. Boot will unlock on key but can't access passenger compartment. Tried the emergency unlock procedure on both front doors (insert key, turn while lifting door handle) to no avail. BMW garage has tried to lift driver's door lock button by inserting rod via gap between door and body to no avail. BMW garage now saying they don't know what to do apart from unscrewing front grille to access battery under bonnet in the hope that disconnecting and reconnecting will work. Rear door lock actuator was replaced and the others were checked recently and all working fine though the car has had lock bounce for many years (lock, unlock, relock) with no problem. Any ideas gratefully received!

    New To The Forum, E34 Owner.

    Hi Guys, Just thought I'd introduce myself to the forum. My name is Alex and I'm the proud owner of a 95 520i SE in Ascot Green Metallic (of course). I'm relatively new to BMWs having owned this car since September last year but have had some Audis and Land Rovers in the past. The ultimate goal for the car is to load it with as many factory options as possible and get everything back to showroom condition. I live in Glasgow and would love to get to meet some local owners. Alex
  20. Hi, I am a late 40's Australian, living in the southern island state of Tasmania. I'm a long term BMW 5 fan. Since the early 2000's, I have owned a 1993 530i (v8) in Calypsorot over black leather, a 1995 540i Manual Limited Edition (Australian version of the U.S. m-sport or the Canadian M540i - all 6 speed manuals) in petrol mica over bicolour leather, then a 1990 3.6 m5, sterling silver over extended light silver grey leather, then another 540iLE, arctic silver over bicolour leather. My current cars are an arctic white 540iLE over bicolour leather, a 1994 orient blue over light silver grey 540iA (soon to be running a 6 speed manual) and a UK delivered 1999 540iT auto in Siena red over black leather. Pics of current cars below. Regards David

    E34 from Norfolk

    Evening all, about time I get on here as I'm damn sure its going to be useful. So I reluctantly sold my first car, a 1996 MX5, owned for the last 1 and a half years its done me good but I needed something to lug my bicycles around the country and abroad so I went in search of something larger... Which has thus landed me with this 1995 525 touring. Being only 21, my colleagues and friends are disgusted by the fact i've bought an estate and despite my reasoning they persist in calling me an "old man" they just dont understand . Regardless I picked this because of the m50 lump and manual box which was what I'd been waiting for. Previous owner swapped in a set of heated sport seats which im not complaining about at all and despite the usual roof lining sag the inside interior pretty sound. Exterior is good for the age imo with the only real grumbles for me being the scabby roof rails, crack in bumper and the rust around the filler cap, all of which should be fixed over time. Now the unfortunate part, no MOT ... I carted it from Birmingham to Norfolk and I now need it MOT'd, it failed on 1 tyre being below the limit, corroded brake lines front to rear n/s and worn drop link. So not really any major probelmos. Having fallen into the metric tyre trap I didn't really fancy the idea of £150 a corner on old rubber and i've picked up a meaty set of style 66's saving my wallet a wedge there. And thats really the story so far. Next on priority list is sorrting the lines and drop link for the MOT and then who knows.

    E34 update and help required please

    So finally got the old banger in to the bodyshop for sills any bodywork that needs doing. A face lift conversion front lower and upper arms ball joints track rod ends tie bars anti roll bar bushes. And all the rear bushes and anti roll bar bushes basically a full overhaul. Eissenman exhaust fitted among other things. We noticed while under the old girl that the (cross member) that the radiator sits on has a big hole in it. Does anyone know what this might otherwise be called or where I can get one. Preferably a new one or a good second hand one please people thank you
  23. As title really saw a really nice burgundy e34 with alpina's on parked in front of an e36 black with what looked like contours on it just off northborough road south I think Leicester any one here ??

    E34 3d tuning

    Anyone seen an app on Apple and android that allows you to modify all kinds of cars including e34 you can raise and lower suspention choose from a selection of oem body kits if you keep the original lights on the car you can turn them on and off its just a gimmick really but you can have some fun with it it looks like this on the App Store enjoy
  25. Hello everyone hope we all had a good Christmas/new year I have been dreading this for a while now the dreaded sills. The old girl ran out of m.o.t last month and I have been waiting for someone I know to have the time to weld her up I was dreading it because I was jacking her up about 6 months ago and I realised that the wing wasn't even attached to the car any more a lot of rust fell out of her when jacking and a lot of crunching. So the skirts came off and I was pleasantly surprised no where near as bad as I thought :-) a small patch on the n/s front and a small patch on the o/s front and back the rest is solid happy days the only thing I really have to do now is remove the carpets so she doesn't catch fire when welding I already have new full sills fro both sides and a good pair of second hand wings. I tried to take the best pictures I could with no ramps p. Right enough typing pic time hope you like
