Hello all,

just joined this forum - I have no.34/50 - Orinoco.

Bought it a couple of months ago - my first BMW - pretty pleased so far except for the battery dying on me and BMW Assistance messing me about for a day before replacing it on the warranty.

If anyone is interested, I currently have number 21 in Rosso Red. It is generally good, 95K, very clean inside, and up in the for sale section!

Long time, no action ?:frown
-
Does anyone here keep records on the whereabouts, existance and
condition of these cars ? Do we know how many are still alive and
running and to some extend where they are ?

First, early and later UK registration numbers do change whenever
there is a change in ownership = correct ? / not correct ?
-
Does anyone here already have a 'registry-record' ?

UK Registration numbers remain on the car in the event of transfer of ownership , unless the car was on a private plate and the previous owner removes it upon sale , in which case it goes back to the original registration if available.

Thank you, David ! Much appreciated !
i.e. (almost) all of the LE cars would still have their original (first) UK registration number :grin:nerd:wink

Hi David.
Thks fur your input. VERY interesting indeed !
-
Could 08/50 be one of the two 'unknown' "Orinoco" cars never registered in the UK ?? or is this one of the "Orinoco" cars being
exported from the UK ??
08/50 should be VIN ****327 - Orinoco - prod.date: 20.04.1995,
right ??

E34 M5 'run out' UK

It was exported. About 5 years ago I would estimate.
-
5 years ago? Latest MOT test/passed in the U.K. was
on Nov. 2nd 2017, mileage 151.268 miles.
Also, "I should have known better" before asking :hihihi:
just checking my records:nerd.
> 08/50 is also mentioned earlier in this 'thread' as
being offered 'for sale' in the U.K.:wink
-------
Any other E34 M5 UK LE car in Australia that you know of ??
-
The two 'missing/unknown' cars (never registered in the U.K.?) are:
> -334- (11/50)
> -361- (41/50)

Are you sure the LE car in Australia is indeed 08/50 i.e. GE00327 =
MOT tested in the U.K. on 2nd November 2017 (!)

I had LE #11 back in 2006 and it was definitely UK Road Registered .
D
Hi David and thank you.:smile
i.e. then indeed ALL of the 50 LE cars were originally road registered in the U.K. and non was sold
directly to another country :laugh
i.e.
> -334- (11/50)
= last MOT 2008-03-10, not exported ? assumed dismantled (owned by "Toby" at one point??)
> -361- (41/50)
= latest MOT 2017-09-09, tax paid, does anyone here know the owner ??

Hmmm. Now you have got me. I last saw it a couple of years ago. Maybe it was #9?
I will see if I can contact the owner and confirm...
-
Is the guys name in Tasmania Grek and he is a member here ???:|
In the 'registry' I found this
GE00326 Sonderlackierung 1995-04-19 Australia
-
but instead I put my money on
GE00352 = 29/50 > exported from the UK in 2013
-
