Mein Auto: BMW 525i
Talking 89 BMW 525i m20

This is my 89 BMW 525i. I have some time consuming plans for it in the future. I plan to rebuild a m3 engine that's turbo worthy and swap it with my inline 6 2.5l engine that had many problems in the pass, but I stuck with it, fixed it, and still luv it. Its an auto, still I plan to swap it with an manual, rebuild the tranny also. Still have no clue what i'm goin to do with the exhaust. If you guys have any suggestions on what a good mod exhaust would be, I would hella appreciate it. As for the color, I am luvin matte black, for the rims.....changin them...most likely gettin matte black rims as well,(just gonna black the whole car out) but still lookin into that, that's probably the last thing i'll do. Alright! I hope you guys enjoy.

Ok, it's pure stock-which suits me fine. Nary a mark on the body, and runs like new. Only nuisance items need attention, and the door check is next on the agenda.

Wish I could have seen her in person 1995i540. As I said earlier, your E34 is one of the nicest examples I have seen in a long time. It is obvious that you take pride in her and keep her healthy.

Damn, I was on the other side of the yellow fence right against it, next to the little z100 tent. I was parked next to a euro imported daytona violet E34 M5

Lol, damn missed you. Car is looking fresh judging by the picture


@BMR_LVR primed and painted flat black, originally it's black but I sourced rust free doors/trunk in green that were repainted and put on the car that's why they are not aligned 100% (fml).

Oh. Okay. For some reason I thought you had wrapped her. Sweet ride for sure

1995i540 I have a question. What is your opinion on a 5 series done in satin black? The reason I ask is that I have a 540i that I was thinking of using that and are there any downsides like extra care you have to take on the paint?

You will just pay tons of money for satin black paint job and clear coat, it's treated as regular paint.

Now.. if you get a ding or a scratch have fun finding a shop that can blend it all in for you without spending $$$$
