    E34 Battery

    Morning guys, I need a quick bit of help / advice please. My E38 750 has a 700CCA battery in it and its supposed to have 850 - 900CCA. I can buy a battery from Halfords that will fit it no problem but my question...... Can I fit the 700CCA battery in my 525 E34? the voltage is the same and she should only take the Amps needed???? Any help would be appreciated
  5. Hello all, I've been reading into upgrading the brakes on my E34. I noticed that a lot of people will go the E31 Brembo 4-pots for the front, and 540i brakes in the rear. There are many threads here, and I've read through most of them. Anyway, I decided that instead of going this route, I would instead go for the lighter (well same weight as single pots for E34/E32) 4-pot Brembo's from the E38. I managed to source a nice CHEAP, fully functional set from my local breaker. I've got a drawing to have some adapters made up, as the E38 brakes are not direct bolt on. This was obviously discussed at length in this thread. I'm now at the point where I'm ready to install the calipers up front, but I need to find out which brake hoses to use. Are the E38 and E34 brake hoses the same internal diameter, will they work with the brembos, or do I need E38 brake hoses? This is one piece of information I've been unable to find whilst researching quite a lot. I know there are a few people here who have done this upgrade, maybe they can shed some light? I believe the hoses will be the same size, however, I don't have extra hose to hand to test this out. Thanks for anyone who can help!

A must from any BMW or James Bond fan - makes a great XMAS present. Very rare fantastic model made by Minichamps in of Scale 1:24 and very hard to get hold off. Please study in the pictures carefully. From a smoke and pet free home. Item will be sent well bubble wrapped and double cardboarded for safe transit and also sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery - fully insured (in the UK). Please see my other auctions for more car models. Any questions please ask. Looking for £80 posted via Royal Mail Special Delivery.
  10. Hi all, My mate is looking at purchasing an E38 735 V8 Sport Individual with 136k on the clock as a daily. I have no clue about these cars or in fact V8’s and wanted to get some pointers on what to look out for before we go view it soon. He’s asking for £2000 and this was the last thing he stated; “Its been stood for a couple of months service rust on the discs due to being stood for several months some rust on off side rear arch and since battery went flat traction control light on dash but wil garage to check and clear with mot.” Here are some pics - the specs are in the last few pics. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers Shaz

    E39-E38 5hp19 gearbox

    Hello Currently my E38 has the dreaded reverse issue, where I put it into Reverse and it creeps back if its on a flat road. Drives like a dream in the forward gears. I have been told I have the 5HP19 Gearbox. I would like to replace the box and was wondering if a 5HP19 from an E39 of 98-2001 would fit my E38 728i? The spare gearbox says on it ZF 5HP19 Any answers much appreciated. Thanks
