How much when new?????

Recommended Posts

£26,375.00

The 525 only came in SE trim in '94.

The list of standard equipment is too long for me to type :wink:

I have a list of further options with prices ranging from £65 for a graduated tinted screen to £2585 which was for automatic air con.

Sounds good, how many miles/how much history?

The leather would have cost £1415.

Air con would have cost £415 if the sunroof option was deleted or it would have been £1545 for air con if the sunroof option was kept.

Just to up date this thread I have found a 5 series pricelist from March 1995 if anyone is interested. It has all the prices of all the models, SE's, iX's, Sport's and Saloon's and Touring's (I think) and the option costs as well as the standard spec list for each model.

Here's a few sample ones;

518i Saloon £18,290,

525i Sport Saloon £29,550

540i Touring £38,450,

M5 Saloon £52,480.

Tell me what you've added and I'll try and find the price - it's a hard copy brochure and must be quite rare now as I waited more than two years for it to pop up on ebay.

 

Can someone explain what the SE trim includes

 

 

SE trim on top of the tds was (Saloon and Touring unless stated otherwise);

 

Optional metric run-flat tyres and wheels

Sun-roof or cheaper air-con 

Front arm-rests (not with sports seats though)

Body-kit/skirts in body colour

Front fogs

Heated mirror's, door lock and washer nozzles

Metallic Paint

Rear head rests

Dog-net and roof bar preparation for the Touring

We got only a few touring types (525, 530; no diesels or 540, and no manuals, only auto) here, but a couple trim levels.

My Orient/dove 1995 525iT came with:

Automatic trans

Leather, heated comforts with armrests

Heated windshield washer jets (I guess mirrors/door locks too?)

Fog lights

Bodycoloured skirts

Dog nets

Cargo cover

Wood trim

Sunroof (sliktop is extremely rare)

Cassette radio

AC

Cruise

Keyless entry/alarm

No: asc+t or LSD, phone or cd changer (prewired of course though), rear headrests weren't offered here.

Pretty standard for us that year I believe.

I've heard they were in the $50k (US) range when new, I picked mine up for $800.00 :)

My car is a '96 525i SE automatic touring, it has:

double sunroof with air con,

heated mirrors

SLS

3T alarm with remote locking

Rear seat netting and load cover

Auto dip mirror

Leather door cards

Rear parking sensors

I have added:

Electric, heated leather comfort seats

Cruise control

Obc

Leather door cards were part of the SE spec by then

Here's the price of mine (can't remember where I got this  :oops: ):-

 

                                                              Price (GBP)

 Model        HE52  540I Saloon                                   31,021.28

 Colour       303   Cosmos Black  Metallic                             0.00

 Upholstery   L2SH  Light Silver-Grey Leather                          0.00

 Option       458   Electric Front Seats Adj                         902.13

 Option       530   Air Conditioning                               1,370.21

                                                                           

                                             Basic Total          33,293.62

That's in 1995, interesting how cruise control, rear blind etc must have been std on this model by then as they aren't listed as options?

Not sure of your full spec but Cruise and metallic paint were indeed standard but the rear blind was a £120 manual or £220 electric option. Interestingly the £480 LSD option was only available on the 540i auto's (not the manual) as ASC +T was standard spec on the manual and a £1335 option on auto cars. The only cars in the range specc'd with an LSD are the M5 and 525i Sport.

 

A couple of interesting anomalies through the brochure is that the 540i Tourings are listed with a top speed of 155mph (with no mention of a limiter) but the saloon's are listed at 149mph. 0 - 60's are the same for the manual cars at 6.4 but the auto saloon is listed at 6.8 and the auto touring at 7.0. The 6 speed M5 is listed at 5.9 and electronically limited to 155.

 

Other little oddities are that every interior trim colour could be specc'd with a black dashboard (and presumably black door caps) at no charge except Parchment and Ultramarine, and that only the M5 could be specc'd with rear heated seats, presumably due to it being hand built at Garching.
