Check inside the driver door jam, or give me the last 7 of the vin, or you go to realoem.com and plug in the last 7 and it will tell you.

Strange to see cloth seats & a diy gearbox. I wonder if its a 5 or 6 speed?

Those cloth seats are very comfortable, seen a few.
Hope the OP will post back to see what it is, I'm always curious with a new E34 around.

Picked up some racing dynamics rims the other day, Gonna repaint them and switch to a smaller tire. I have the center caps. Adjustable coilovers are next. Also picked up a new trunk lid, but if I line it up straight it doesn't want to latch. I swear I've tried adjusting the lower and upper latches every way possible. The car is filthy in the pictures and I've since cleaned up the wheels.

Been a while. Just got back in town a week ago from a 2 week vacation. Hopefully I can get the clutch repaired tomorrow. Also drove the other day and put mid grade in with no problems.

Beautiful, especially for the price. Looks like the previous owner did the same thing to the lights that I did. Looks very clean.

Anyone with a washer system like mine, that does not work, i can help you out with some pointers on rebuilding/cleaning the jets, they have about a dozen parts(in heated ones) in them that are removed when cleaning.
I have spent a lot of time trying to get my system to work right, and have re plumbed it, and now dub into those jets.
They were a bit complicated and i thought i had spares, but 95's are different than a 91 washer jet, and the 91 design clogs much more i found once i tore it down after i lost a spring in my 95s' jet, and no parts are compatible, but i found the spring.

Anyways they can be tore down and working like new again, just requires a good eye, which i don't have since I'm blind in one, and almost in the other.

Huh, i always just yank that crap out to make the bay cleaner and save a pound. Have not seen many people go into repairing it. Could be new material if your willing to post a detailed right up with pic's.

Meant to post in Ot, id be wiling to do a write up for anyone interested, or because i have not found anything addressing the issue yet, other than dropping cash on new everything.
I like to have functioning items on my car, and more stock, i have jeeps for yanking things out and trashing them until the uniframe breaks and it goes to the scrapper.
