Well I am talking about the lateral g in a regular stock car. And I needed the info just to see how this model compares to the newer stock M5 models not to see how much I could push the car.Do you need to use a G meter to know when you're at the limit, or do you just use common sense? What does the amount of G tell you that you would use on a day to day basis?
Most enthusiasts wouldn't need to know how many G their car could push, as they would realise that this was entirely dependent on lots of factors (e.g. tyre compound, tyre pattern, tyre wear, suspension geometry, vehicle load, weather conditions, road surface, etc.).
The difference between an e34 on slicks in the snow (maybe 0.1g) to an e34 on road tyres on a road (maybe 0.8g), to an e34 with full race suspension, race slicks, hot track (maybe 1.2g) is too big to give a definitive answer.
Those figures assume you mean lateral (sideways) G - you've also got acceleration G and braking G - all part of roadholding/handling.
Steering ratio is 15.6:1.
Stock for stock, i'd assume they are very similar.And I needed the info just to see how this model compares to the newer stock M5 models not to see how much I could push the car.

both of mine are modded, and if you throw them both into a similar corner, the e39 would tend to plow while the e34 would tend to hang out the tail.
If you go to bmwe34m5.com then go to faq, then to e34, you can download and read contemporary road tests from when the car was new, and find the hard data.
I say this gently, but my comment would be that you are over-thinking the matter. Forget the numbers-too many variables, go with your gut.
that's what I have a hard time deciding on , I love to get my hands on a good E34 with low milage, but I also am looking at a very clean E39.cool! which m5 are u looking to buy?
or do you already own one?
well, there are two e34's that i know of that is for sale.that's what I have a hard time deciding on , I love to get my hands on a good E34 with low milage, but I also am looking at a very clean E39.
I am thinking of buying the E39 , see how I like it and in the meantime wait for a clean E34 and at that time I can sell the E39 .
It's very hard to make a decision , how about yourself?
Yeah I wanted a black one and the one you are talking about is kind of high milage and doesn't look very clean though I was tempted to go look for it. So I am waiting for something better to pop out.well, there are two e34's that i know of that is for sale.
a black one imported from germany and a red canadian one.
i took a look at the red one and liked it quite a bit.
i'm just wondering if i should sell the e46 i have right now
it is currently for sale so i'm looking at what offers may come in.
those two e34's are on craigslist if you didn't already see it.
