Karl,M5touring reg said:gear shifter does NOT illuminate ? = strange indeed ! that being one of the few gimmicks on the E34 M5, I never heard it does not, before now (unless of course when someone had a fault), as this appears to be the same for so many of you, something is odd here -
Zip, cud you ask -Tony- or someone at ML ? as BMW is no idea to ask ? there
is an obvious risk that they will not remember there ever was such a car made by BMW hiha
Zip - my Orinoco LE has a regular M3-style steering wheel, looks like this:Zippy said:steering wheel with Birds eye maple wood (graphite)
personally speaking..lovely as that sounds...IvanDias said:I know the owner, lives near me.
He had a Sierra Cosworth, and I saw it four times in three years. Sunny weekends, all of them, out of the garage, off for a drive, then a full valet and wax, including underbody, then back into the garage.
A while back it disappeared, and my (now ex) girlfriend said she saw one of "my" cars in the garage when it was left open one day, a very rare occurence.
Four months went by before I saw it, only the rear in the shadow of the garage, and yes it was an M5.
A year and a half later, this summer of 2003, it was parked outside, (on the road - shock horror!!), as some building work was underway in the garage.
It is a absolutely perfect LE in rosso red with the cream leather interior. There are plastic sheets over the seats, front and back. The interior shows ZERO signs of wear, marks or use.
The M-Parallel wheels are perfect, the tyres regulation jet black with the little bobbles on them.
The paint has ZERO dinks, scratches, stonechips or marks. I could not see a single swirl mark from polishing. It shone. I looked over it for about ten minutes, I found no flaw.
I have not seen it since, I have never seen it leave, arrive, or being driven.
It is guaranteed to be the best condition M5 LE.
I would hazard a guess that it is the best condition M5 period, except for maybe that one in the German dealer earlier this year with 1km on the clock.
But. And it`s a big but. I drive mine every day, I know it pretty well, what it likes, how it brakes, when it wants to let go. I`m really not sure that I could swap my tired old 3.6 for his perfect 3.8 if it came with the issue that I couldn`t drive it more than once or twice a year!!!
Mmmm..... maybe he keeps happy with the giant old style Model T thing behind it in the garage, or his E34 535i, or his E28 535i, or his runabout Citroen, or his E28 M5, or his other E28 M5.
Nice guy. Could do with his money and lifestyle, but I`d sure have to buy another M5 to have as a daily!!
Interesting!!M540i LE said:Here is an interesting one. Has anyone ever heard of a Canadian version of the 1995 M5 LE??
Check out the link.
When I first saw the site, I thought someone had imported number 10 of the UK cars, but clearly, colour and interior are wrong (not to mention the LHD). Was there a Euro run of 50 LE's? Maybe, it just has the badge off the UK number 10?

embarrasing for the M-GmbH - :crying2: :crying2:
'to cut a long story short' = this is NOT a -limited edition car- it is -just-
an ordinay E34 M5
Yep she's a beauty. Went to the race tyre place yesterday. A few guys in having the wheels aligned on their mass produced 911 porkers:1:were asking about it !M5touring reg said:[email protected] sorry mate :byebye: I guess I gave an invitation to that one.. :byebye: it should have read = another fantastic, exclusive and rare,
BMW sport saloon, an E34 -series M5 (but this specific one is not a 'limited edition' car) - BETTER ?? :byebye:
[email protected] no need for 'Detective Colombo', the VIN is available and consequently facts are relatively easy to check - I depend on good, openly minded and positive support from the M-GmbH with my research-work on the E34 M5 special- or 'limited edition' cars, th4 I do not wish to get 'black-listed',as I am sure you will understand - shud you still wish an answer pls send me a -private message- :byebye:
by the way, perhaps this is yesterdays news for you ? for what it is worth =
the 'model run out' UK LE cars are NOT listed by the ///M-GmbH as a factory
limited edition car, their definition is different, this does of course not change the fact that the -UK LE- cars are generally accepted as a 'limited edition run' although officially these cars are made by 'Individual' upon order and specifications as received from BMW GB -
no matter what, these are great, exclusive, rare and unique late production
cars of a fantastic -sport saloon- BMW modell -
you that have one = enjoy the ownership and the driving pleasure :wroom: :byebye:
