This is the ratio I chose a year or so ago for my daily driven 540iA Touring (although it is an auto, the 5HP30 5th gear is 0.79, pretty much the same as 6th in the manual). It suits the car perfectly (at least, it suits perfectly in the UK!)

There is no way I'd go back to the original 2.93 open diff.

I've heard of the supercharged B44 E28 but didn't now about the E34.

PM me on the E39 gearbox please.

The E34 with supercharger its orange. The owner name is Indra Santoso. Knw him very well. We raced all the time.

I can't PM you cause im new and my post is less than 45. Why dont you take a look at it and make me an offer. Also have S38B38 engine. I was gonna put it on my E30 M3 but going with the S54 instead.

Taffy, my E34 is in Astra Cilandak. It was there for over 8 months before for the gearbox. Now its there again waiting for parts. I am doing a complete restoration on it.

E34 and E60 M5, E30 M3 , I like it !

Yes, I saw photos of the orange E34 , looks ok (not into orange personally) , write up at the time (I think on modifikasi.com) was without a supercharger.

Why don't you drop by Halim Airport sometime ? We are there most Saturday's from lunchtime until 9pm

Rudy never owned that car. He drove it sometimes and shows it around but its always mine. You could call him and verify it with him. I think i met you Taffy. Im the guy with the silver E55 AMG.

Go to the airport and there's a P-51 Mustang on a pole, turn left there and tell the military police you are a visitor for Pak Tony at Gudang Trikora.

I'll PM you my phone number

Don't go into the Angkasa Pura civilian side of the airport, you have to turn left before the Mustang when coming from Cawang
