Nice car

Congratulations, those wheels are looking in excellent condition. Mine are beginning to fade and the center caps are in need of replacement.

Thanks Dionte,
yeah the wheels look like brand new,not a nick or scratch anywhere, best thing is there's a 5th in the boot that's in the same condition, along with the full factory toolkit and everything else.
Blown away so far, only thing missing is the flashlight out of the glove box and the firstaid kit from under the passenger seat.
Totally new world of motoring, she may be old but am just amazed at the class.
cheers mate

That poor looking WJ in the back ground, looks like oversized rims on it . Looking good, not too fond on the tail lights. What exactly do you need i see a JY visit in my future weekend plans, they have a few e34, and most had tan interior, i may be able to get some stuff and ship it.

I think it is Granitsilber Metallic , thanks for the complement . For the longest time I was a volvo nut.....until I got behind the wheel of the old school 540i fell in love.

I was a Jeep, er still am a Jeep nut, but like my 79 Cherokee chief, i dreamed of owning an e34 from an early age, and when i found my 540, i did everything i could to get it(thank god for tax season).
My FSJ, and E34 are the only two cars i literally dreamed about having, can't get better than this. Hopefully i can get pics of the car once its on the lift tomorrow, see what the underbelly really looks like now, not really looked around much, just kept it somewhat clean.

Know what you mean, still love my volvo's . When I was in the service in 95,a friend of mine had bought a M5 and I had always said that I wanted one. The body style is classic to me and with the right set of rims and drop it looks sick. I've only had it for about 6 months. Made a mistake of trading my throwing stars for some M-Parallels I should have kept them an paid for the M-Parallel's......oh well live and learn .

Those are M Parallels (M-Pars) off of E38 7 series sports and E39 5 series.
  • 18x8 et20 on the E39s, only difference is the hub bore which is slightly larger than other bmws (for what reason, i'll never know) and would require hub rings.
  • 18x8 et13 on the E38s, same hub bore as us.
  • I believe the E38s had a staggered setup with 18x9.5 et 25 rears.
IMHO the only 18" rim that really works with the E34...
