take fuel line feed off and see if petrol comes out when you turn the key to ON but before starting. not sure what non-BMWs are like, but these cars prime for a second or two before starting. that will help determine if the fuel pump is working, though it could still be non working up to spec. there is a filter on the tip of the pump that can get blocked too IIRC, i can picture the E34 pump but been a while since i looked at an E30 one.

E30 above Sold
