    FSH - all BMW Maindealer until last two at Moseley Motorsport


    The previous owner bought the car directly from BMW (ex-DEMO) as a present to himself at 70 years of age. At 80 years of age he was being forced to stop driving and hence reluctantly had to sell the car.

    The car was cherished and fastidiously maintained with all records meticulously kept. The car was used very sparingly - to the extent that he had his Main-dealer hardwire in a port to connect the car to a trickle-charger in his garage.

    It has been my wife's car since February 2007.

    The impeccable service history is as follows:

    Date Level of Service Dealer Mileage

    18/09/1995 Pre-delivery Inspection BMW - Evans Halshaw -

    At the Insp II with Moseley Motorsport the front and rear brake pads were replaced, new fuel filter, new rear subrame bushes and all the fuel and brakes lines were cleaned and wax-oiled.

    Additonally, the car has very recently just had a new radiator fitted along with new Roller pulley, Belt tensioner, new poly belt and new AirCon belt.


    The car will come with TWO FULL SETS OF WHEELS:

    1) The 5 original E34 Metric wheels with the correct Dunlop TD tyres. These have plenty of tread remaining and are very expensive tyres to replace. I therefore removed these as soon as we got the car and put them aside in storage.

    They would be appropriate on the car for shows etc. to preserve originality.

    2) A set of four non-metric 16" E38 wheels (direct bolt-on replacement) with tyres with good tread.

    These are obviously much cheaper tyres to replace. Additionally the car drives better with them!

    In addition, there is a fifth, completely brand new matching wheel included in the sale.


    Alpine Radio / Cassette Head Unit - tasteful, unlike some gaudy additions!

    Alpine Boot -Mounted 6-CD Changer


    Super Clean!

    No major blemishes

    Just clayed, deswirled and BMW "Hard Wax" Applied - Yes! This is the stuff that maindealers apparently charge you 300 to apply!

    Only very light stone-chips to front as to be expected but certainly the appearance completely belies the car's thirteen years! Please see photographs.

    This is not a brand new car but I have seen cars at 13 weeks not look as good cosmetically, let alone 13 years!

    Perfect Unmarked Interior

    Never Smoked In

    All Tools, Jack, Wheel-Brace, Glovebox Torch and First Aid Box are all present and unused.

    Carpets have alwats been protected by overmats

    Additionally a spare set of Brand New Overmats is also included


    Included is a Bosal Detachable Towbar (The Rolls Royce of Towbars!)

    This was removed from my wife's previous E34 and has never been fitted to this car!

    Set of Genuine BMW Mudflaps, correct for this later face-lifted model with the deep side-skirts; again taken my our previous E34 and never fitted to this car.

    Spare Rear Light Lens


    This car is only being sold as my wife wishes to return to the capacity that an Estate car offers her and the children.

    This is an exceptional example of what many argue be the most solidly built of all the BMW 5-series.

    It drives superbly, everything works.

    It is in super condition and would take very little effort to make it a full concours contender should you wish.

    Please do not confuse this car with the norm of tired and haggered-looking E34s being sold widely.

    This car would be appropriate for someone looking specifically for a truly top-notch E34 to continue to cherish.

    It is Taxed, Mot'd, Serviced and ready to enjoy.
