Mein Auto: 1989 BMW 535iM
Here is my e34 project a 1989 535i/5 speed. Mods include: Bilsteins, H&R Springs, Style 94 wheels with Nero Zeros tires. 166k or so on the odometer.

The car spent about a decade in someone's backyard, so the paint is a train wreck. Nonetheless, I really like the car and its been great making it a decent car again.

Here are a bunch of pics from last fall to now.

Day One - check out the paint!!

Paint Project
My random orbital buffer and Meguiar's m105 spent some quality time with the paint. After buffing with M105 I followed with Ultimate compound and polish. After several runs at it, I addressed the oxidation, but in all the delamination is too significant.
