Question How many beasts still alive (international E34 M5 register)?

What is the E34 M5 Register?
This is an effort to compile a worldwide database for all the E34 M5s that were built (LHD as well as RHD).
This effort is headed by m5board members M5Limo95reg, HD91 and m5 touring reg (together with lots of permanent helpers).
For everyone interested in seeing the results as the work progresses, the register can be found online by visiting the following links (PLEASE NOTE: a login name is needed to view the vehicle lists - membership is free and usually granted within 24 hours of application - new members will receive an e-mail when their login name is activated):

- LHD M5 3,6 -
- LHD M5 3,8 -
- M5 touring -
- RHD M5 3,8 -

The RHD 3.6, North American 3.6 and South-African knockdown kit version will be added to the site in the near future.

Informations that are stored are; the last seven digits of the VIN-number, exterior colour, production date and the latest known location (country where the car is registered, kept or wrecked). For Individual spec cars and development vehicles etc, the actual ordering code following the vehicle is marked in the right column. Complete build sheets can be aquired by e-mailing the M5 register.

All VINs and their colours/build dates are listed in the links above, but the informations for the country columns are not known for all cars. Any new information is of course of great interest to keep the database growing. You can contact the members mentioned above by sending a m5board PM or using the e-mail-adresses supplied on the register homepage. The best way of sourcing out information is with the VIN-number. Additional data such as registration numbers, owners and state/city are NOT stored and not needed for this project.
Owners of any E34 M5 may present their vehicle with photos/informations in this thread (for the touring version there is already a thread for this purpose: The E34 M5 Touring Registry!).
You may also give us a tip on cars for sale online and then we can check it further if the vehicle is known.

Cars that have been wrecked have a remark "wrecked" in the right column. Wrecked cars are of course interesting as well, as this is an attempt to see (hopefully in a few years time) how many still alive.

Updates on the actual numbers found will be posted in this thread a couple of times a year.
The sections of the register are available in Swedish, English and German language, with abbreviations in French, Spanish and Russian.

With best regards,

Seven last digits of the VIN + country is enough. But other informations are of course welcome as well They will however not be stored in the register.

Thanks day!
We got some complains about the Swedish site language. This is easily solved by selecting English where it says "Välj språk":

Yes, adding the 3.6 LHD VINs manually in the database (tables in Macromedia Dreamweaver) is taking me more time than expected. 1989 and 1990 MY are not complete at this moment.

However, the 289-series (first VIN-part of the 1989s) are now added with colours and production dates! Have a look on the 1989MY again. What country is 2899741 registered in?
