Sounds interesting ! How about some more details on your project ?
Like a picture, present condition, mileage, ambition ?

Another E34 M5touring in the US / UK / where ??
Which one is it, last 3 digits of the VIN will do, like BL01???

Hi Karl, uploading fotos didn't work with tinipic, maybe you have another suggestion ?

M5 is blo01152 and is situated in Belgium.

I pulled the car out of a barn where it stood for over 8 years.

At the moment it is undergoing a technical inspection and gets the bits and pieces treatment.

The outside is polished and shines like new ! No rust or whatsoever..

Dutch title car in Belgium ?

KR [email protected]
Congratulations and ,thumps up’ and good luck for the rescue operation....
Pretty high mileage on the chassis but not the original engine anymore....?
No rust ? are you sure ? how about the bottom of the doors and the trunklid ?

This car was apparently offered for sale on ,mobile.de’ 02/2017. Is it still under a Dutch registration ?

Good luck and best wishes for your project.

Karl, thank you for the kind words.

Car has been thorougly inspected and restored, so no rust issues anymore and is on Belgium reg.

Engine have been replaced, because the original engine was beyond dead ...

High milage is correct 373000, but this is what tourings were made for ....touring ;-)

It has the double liftingroof, nurburgring package, hifi, bavaria c prof. and Mtech black and grey leather interior

Do you have more info on the car ? buildsheet ? mobile de advertisement ?

Dominic

E34 M5touring rescue

Hi Dominic.
Yes, built sheet and further info is available.
I really do appreciate your efforts, investment and care to rescue an E34 M5touring and
subsequently it is NOT my intention to be a pain.....in the end it is your car
and decisions are of course yours...
-
The car is an early production car and many of these have a limited no of special order options.
Exterior colour: Diamantschwarz-met. (181 M), interior: Schwarz, Volleder (0318) -
Special order options: 404A, 530A, 662*, 676A -
-
> wheel covers (throwing stars) fitted in the wrong direction ??
> the front spoiler was and apparently still is ?? an M-tech (540/530) spoiler, not M5
> interior M-tech black and grey (?)
> Nuerburgring package NOT factory, EDC-switch and servotronic (216A) re-fitted ?

PS:
You might wish to edit the ,mregistry’ entry from a previous owner and provide/add
a picture or more ???

the car pictured in post 6 has the M sport bumper, not the M5 bumper (which is pictured in your post above). All M5 tourings had EDC. Fitting the switch, and the 20mm rear anti roll bar is pretty easy. The nurburgring package included the servotronic steering also.

Karl's build sheet info shows this car as having black extended leather interior, so the seats have either been swapped or dyed.

Looks to be in great shape. Post more pics when you can.
