I think you may be right, I was excited at seeing the leather up the door handles and glove box etc. I take it from what you just said that is standard? It has the split rear seat with ski hatch too.

SCHWARZ VOLLEDER = black full leather. That's the normal one that you get when ordering leather for the M5 (seats + door panels, centre console and a few other things). Still a rare beast though, because alpine white is not that common on European M5s.

I have details on many of the Australian cars. I have tried to register, but think I failed as I was only guessing what the swedish might mean!

Cheers
Try this:



Switch to English from "Svenska" and things will be a bit easier :)
I saw there were some infos on your Yahoo-site. There were 5 or 6 new Australian cars there. Maybe you know even more?
Try register a member name again, and have a look on the vehicle lists.

You looking for US cars as well? Registered on your site today :noSMG:
Yep! All types of E34 M5s worldwide :noSMG:
You have been added as a member now. Welcome!
Check the lists and please let me know if you don't find a US-flag next to your VIN. The location (country) is known for most of the North American spec 92-93s (maybe 85-90% of them or so). It is usually either US or Canada, but there is a US spec M5 in Puerto Rico too! And one exported to Portugal.

Did that a number of days ago and was told to wait for an email to activate my membership - which has yet to come...

Something must have gone wrong. I can try to register for you with a temporary password if you let me know what member name you like and your e-mail address. We had some server problems a couple of days ago, maybe that caused a fault when you registered.

So, time for the first update on the number of cars identified. Let's start with the 3.8 LHD.

723 cars have been found since the international register started in Nov. of 2008.

Country / Numbers found on March 16th 2009

Sweden = 338
Germany = 93
U.S.A. = 64
Russia = 51
Finland = 28
Latvia = 15
Brazil = 14
Japan = 12
Switzerland = 12
Norway = 10
United Kingdom = 9
Poland = 8
Italy = 8
Spain = 7
Netherlands = 7
Canada = 6
Denmark = 5
Turkey = 4
Belgium = 4
Iceland = 3
Ukraine = 3
Austria = 3
France = 3
South Korea = 2
Luxemburg = 2
Hungary = 1
Greece = 1
Czech Republic = 1
Serbia = 1
South Africa = 1
Belarus = 1
United Arab Emirates = 1
Argentina = 1
Peru = 1
Nigeria = 1
Guadeloupe = 1
Gibraltar (UK) = 1

Of those 723, the following have been wrecked:

Sweden = 83
Germany = 8
Norway = 6
Latvia = 1
U.S.A. = 1

Of those 723, the following have been stolen:

Russia = 26
Sweden = 7

The number for Germany is of course far from all cars. An estimation would be 350-400 cars there including the wrecked ones. Also France and Italy, way too little to show any good statistics. Help is needed with these countries. Maybe someone can check with their department of motor vehicles? VIN is needed, license plate not interesting.

RHDs will follow.

OK, I have just tried to register again with the same user name as I have here.

I received the same message - that the site is restricted and will require approval, which will come by email. How long does that normally take?

If it speeds things up, please register me using this user name and a temporary password.

Cheers

Hi , I have just bought GA25481 , Calypso Red , from member Scotchw and it's an absolute cracker that is causing me a huge dilema , as I'd initially bought it with the intention of breaking for spares due to an apparently failed head gasket .

However , this particular late ( 05/91 production and 11/92 registration ) 3.6 is far too good to break and I'm going to have to put her right as a potential keeper .......just don't tell Melissa , as my car collection is becoming ridiculous !

Hey HD91...

Just a clarification so there's no confusion. I'm listed as living in Australia (for a few more years) but the car (GA25308) is actually in Cyprus. Hope it hasn't caused any great confusion.

Hi there stedes,
Yes, I got that. It should be listed as Cyprus. Did you also know of another 3.6 RHD in Cyprus?
