  1. B12 Seat

    ALPINABoard.com | BMW Alpina Discussion
    Hello, Not sure how much activity is on this forum but worth a shot (been a long time E34 M5 forum member but that forum is pretty quiet these days). I purchased an E38 B12 6.0 about six months ago. Annoyingly the piping on the lower seat bolster of the lavalina leather (contour seats) on the...
  2. sewing machine like sound when driving - from under instrument panel or just above my left foot

    E34 M5 Discussion
    E-box fan? I had a similar noise and it was that. Lantz
  3. Considering my first E34 M5

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Having owned my M5 (3.8) for over 12 years I think I know it pretty well, and my thoughts on your proposition are below. Please note these are only my opinions ;) - I would avoid using an almost 30 year old high performance car as a commuter, particularly if your commute includes a lot of...
  4. Recommended Engine Builder Continental Europe

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Thanks for all the recommendations, very much appreciated! In the end, I've gone with Hugo's recommendation of 'The Engineer's Garage'. So far, very responsive and professional. I expect the car will be picked up in early July for a thorough going over. I'll keep you updated on progress. To...
  5. Recommended Engine Builder Continental Europe

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Dear all, After over 250,000 kms on the original engine I've decided to give my 3.8 a proper engine refresh. I am also toying with the idea of some light weight internals, cams, increased compression etc. to help keep up with more modern machinery. My car will never be a true collector's item...
  6. M-Tech trunk spoiler

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Personally (and this is my own opinion) I find that the spoiler ruins the lines of the otherwise handsome e34. Something about it just does not look right to me. But, as always, to each his own.. Lantz
  7. Engine Swap Options

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Nikosx, sorry to go off-topic, out of curiosity what have you done to yours? Lantz
  8. Engine Swap Options

    E34 M5 Discussion
    If I were you I would either (i) sell the car for parts; or (ii) park the car and start saving for a proper S38 rebuild. Option (ii) appears to make the most sense given that you have a low mileage example, and the e34 m5 market is bullish. A low mileage, matching numbers e34 m5 with a freshly...
  9. Belgian Tuning Company

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Thanks - I'll get in touch with him once I get the car down here from Sweden. Solid mechanics are hard to find! Best wishes, Lantz
  10. Belgian Tuning Company

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Thanks GoneAgain, Kempower was exactly who I was looking for. Harald is also a great tip - I suppose he can undertaking general service/maintenance on the E34 M5? Best wishes, Lantz
  11. Belgian Tuning Company

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Hi all, I seem to recall there was a company based in Belgium specialising in S38s that had some impressive rebuild options. As I am based here now I'd like to get in touch with them. Anyone know who they are? Many thanks. Lantz
  12. Looking for input on repainting M5

    E34 M5 Discussion
    I was quoted circa EUR 5k earlier today to get my old DD 320d resprayed - more than twice what the car is worth so I am obviously leaving it as is. I second what the others have said: (i) if going for a whole new colour then do it properly i.e. inside and out; (ii) if going for another shade of...
  13. Evolve Chip

    M5 E34 Group Buy Forum and Sponsor Discussion
    I'm afraid I only ran it for a very short while (probably less than a week) as my car suffered (unrelated) fuel pump failure. With the new pump in place I reinstalled the OEM chip. I have no more use of the chip as I will go down the full re-map route once I get round to rebuilding my engine...
  14. Evolve Chip

    M5 E34 Group Buy Forum and Sponsor Discussion

  15. Eisenmann vs BB Triflow

    E34 M5 Discussion
    It definitely gets louder/higher pitched as the RPMs increase - at WOT it really screams and sounds fantastic. Lantz
  16. Eisenmann vs BB Triflow

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Here is mine - fully stock exhaust save for an Eisenmann Race backbox. It's a touch tiresome on longer drives but makes a great and balanced sound when I'm in the mood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjEbXE7UFiA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWqMxzfMbhg PS - these vids are like 6 years...
  17. Restoring a 94 after 9 years

    E34 M5 Discussion
    Interesting story. I concur with the others. Unless your example is a well-specced low miler, this will very much be a labour of love rather than an exercise that would please your bank manager. Whatever you decide, keep us in the loop, and enjoy! Lantz PS. My own car is a high mileage and...
  18. Is there any aftermarket springs for M5 w/EDC?

    E34 M5 Discussion
    I seem to remember people complaining about the H&R/EDC setup back in the day. Complaints were along the lines of 'floaty' handling, particularly at higher motorway speeds. I can't be 100% sure though and probably worth a check using the search function. Lantz
  19. My E34 M5 3.6 Alpinweiß II
