[This E34 M5 is a two Owner car that has spent its entire life in San Diego Ca. So it has absolutely NO RUST. All Original paint and checks out on carfax with Zero issues. It has 153,xxx miles and is FULLY documented from new. Everything works as it should, needs nothing.<O:p></O:p>[

<O:p</O:pWhen we got this car it was in need of a bit of love. The previous owner was a business owner who had owned the car 9 years and it had gone from being his first, then second to third car. The car is all original paint and has every document from new. There is NO paperwork missing with this car, we even have the original Invoice and Paper Plates. We have the ski bag, cargo nets, all of the bookwork including the welcome cassette. <O:p</O:p
We have gone through the car to bring it back to what these cars should be. The engine is very strong but needed a really good servicing. The Intake were stripped from the motor along with the valve covers, they were cleaned and refinished then fitted with all new O rings, seals and Gaskets. The Injectors were original so they were replaced with some bosch Blue tops that have a more modern spray pattern. All of the vacuum hosing was brittle so that was replaced. The head gasket was done by the previous owner at 125,000. New OEM Sparkplugs were fitted and all fluids and Filters were changed. The previous owner replaced all of the water hoses 3000 miles ago and we fitted a new water reservoir.<O:p</O:p
For the Exterior we started by cleaning the paint to see what condition it was in. The car was clay barred and fully detailed. Hours were spent on the paint so that it now has a beautiful shine that looks incredibly deep. Jet Black is the hardest color to look good as it shows every mark. This car is 17 Years old now and has 150,000+ miles and the paint is original so there are some stone chips but it looks superb. The Lowers were painted black to match the car as originally they were silver. We did this because I feel that it makes the car look slicker and has smoother lines. The Mirrors are copies of the 1993 Motorsport mirrors, they are made by Kopi and are great quality and fit perfectly, I just think they look better than the original ones. All of the body moldings have been changed to the European ones that don’t have the side repeater in them. These are OEM Europe parts that are bought through BMW. They make the car look cleaner. Windows have been tinted with 30% Black color tint.<O:p</O:p
The headliner was sagging so we took out the A&C Pillars, Headlining and rear parcel shelf and refinished them in Micro Suede that look like alcantara. If you didn’t know it wasn’t stock, you would never guess, looks great.<O:p</O:p

The stereo systems in these cars are terrible to say the least. We refitted the whole system from scratch, we wanted a good quality system that looked fairly stock and would sound great. This is what was fitted.

<O:pNakamichi CD300 Head Unit (looks stock)
<O:p</O:pAlpine MFR350 4 Channel amp (bridge to 3 Channel)
<O:p</O:pAlpine Components 6.5 + Tweeter & Crossover in Rear
<O:pAlpine Components 5.75 + Tweeter & Crossover In Front
<O:pBoston Acoustics 8” sub in rear

<O:pThe sound is fantastic and clear with good Bass, not a car shaking sub bass sound but very respectable. Everything for stereo was bought new and has been wired with Monster cable.<O:p</O:p

The wheels are BBS LM Replicas (that we sell in our store) staggered 18x8 in the front and 18x9 in the rear. The tires are Pirelli P-Zero Rosso’s 235/40 in front and 265/35 in rear The wheels are brand new about 500 miles ago and the tires are about 50%. I had these tires on a previous car and they all match.<O:p</O:p
We were going to do a full suspension upgrade on this car but the rear SLS system is fairly new and the P.O paid over 750 per shock to replace them. After driving the car for a day or so on the southern California freeways I decided that I would leave the suspension the way it is, just fit New Eibach Springs. Included in the sale is the rear Eibachs, if the new owner wants to convert the SLS there is the matching springs to the fronts. We do have aFront suspension setup for the car that we could negotiate, this includes Koni front shocks and Adjustable Camber top mounts. If you wanted to use the car more on the track then these would be perfect for you.<O:p</O:p
The cars only Performance modifications are the Magnaflow exhaust and High flow cats. There is a Dinan Engine chip that takes the horse power of the S38B36 Engine to 343 BHP. We fitted a new short shift kit that reduces the throw 30% and has a more direct feel. The transmission mounts were changed to new ones but Enforcers were added. <O:p</O:p
]The car feels superb now. There are NO problems with this car. No warning lights, SRS light of any kind. It is a genuine 2 owner M5. There is allot of power there and really starts to pull over 4000 rpms (only when warmed to 190 degrees!!!) and sounds awesome with the Magnaflow on. It rides really tight with no rattles or vibrations. The car needs nothing and but a new owner.
These cars are amazing, if you compare this car to other cars of the same time period (Mustangs, Camaro’s, Corvette’s) these cars were much more advanced with straight 6 Engines on Individual throttle bodies and Independent Hydraulic rear suspensions. The fit and Finish with these cars was great as they were all Hand Built in Germany. They have just started to surge in Value as the get rarer you will see the value rise even more. These cars will be worth allot of money in the years to come. Nice E34 M5’s are getting harder to find, they are a better alternative to a Porsche 911. They have the same build quality and straight six motor but the M5 can carry all of the family....

<O:pWe will include all of the parts that were taken off the car such as the original lights and side trims. <O:p</O:p

We have a front suspension setup for this car including Koni Shocks and Adjustable camber top mounts for those track days<O:p</O:p
The paint is original and in very good condition however there are rock chips on the hood and wings, the clear coat has whitened in 3 areas on the hood. These are the size of a penny. There are some small scratches here and there but they are very very minor. The paint has been detailed so most of the imperfections in the paint are gone. No dents, Accident damage at all. If you are local please come and have a look at this car. You will not be disappointe<O:p</O:p

I have 100’s of pictures of this car so if there is something that you would like to see just ask and I will be happy to take a picture of it and send it to you<O:p</O:p
