update

Finally, after A LOT of work the 1990 model year section is now complete.
This means cars with end of VIN BK00960 - BK03333 (colour and production date available on all).

For those already members, direct link:

http://www.e34m5.se/forum/lhdlimoreg90.asp

Entering 2374 cars manually in the database was harder than I thought. This I will not do again :hihi:


Main pages for each version:
- LHD M5 3,6 -
- RHD M5 3,6 -
- USA M5 3,6 -
- CKD M5 3,6 -

- LHD M5 3,8 -
- M5 touring -
- RHD M5 3,8 -



To get a member login for the register (and M5-forum), first switch to English language:



Then follow the steps to register (don't forget the anti-spam code required). Members are granted access manually, so you may have to wait a few hours.

Keep the informations coming (this thread, PM, e-mail or Swedish forum) :applause:

All M5s added

US M5 is now done and on the page (1678 units):

Scroll down to the model year sections from this link (also mentioned above): www.e34m5.se (login required to read the actual vehicle lists).

This means every E34 M5 ever built is on the register now. We just need the country column better filled out now and as I said before, informations on stolen or wrecked cars is also important. Thanks for your cooperation on the project :applause:

Could someone portuguese speaking check the VIN on this US import in Várzea De Sintra? That would be interesting to know for this project.

HD91...

On bmwmregistry.com I found another M5 in Cyprus...naturally curious, I contacted the owner and discovered that the UK sourced car was imported to Cyprus (Turkish part) but has subsequently been broken and it's parts sold or used on other cars. Hence WBSHC92050GE00098 is no longer...

It's heart apparently lives on in a 2-door E30... and the saddest thing is that the guy had to do it because of local Turkish law not allowing the car to be registered because of it's age...! :(

Thanks! GE00098 has been added now (1st Cyprus 3.8 - probably the only one as well). Good detective work as always stedes :clap:

I heard about the Turkish regulations at some forum. Apparently it is impossible with older cars. Only exception is if you lived abroad and had the car for several years, then you might be able to register it.

Thanks stedes- no I don't have full leather (and after 18 years it would be a mess!!!!!! but due to lexol and sun shield still have PERFECT dash! Don't you think red does this racecar justice! once I have the car entirely mechanically restored I plan to have it stripped to the iron and repainted,

sounds like an interesting car given the typical US spec.
Shouldn't the vin's on these cars be sequential for a given country's production? My 3/90 production car (bumper date is actually feb 22, 1990) is a bk05xxx car, why would this one be bk06xxx?

one other remark, on the registry, it shows my car's production date to be mar 7 90, but my bumper was signed/dated a couple weeks prior. (22/2/90)

Hi Mike,

My bumper is also signed some weeks earlier. Car is 9/93 build according to specs, but I think the bumper said late August of 93.
