Thanks man! Way ahead of ya.

Put my new gas tank in, i knew i smelled gas too regularly
Remember guys if you smell gas find it.
Had two small holes under one where you can see and then the gaping hole.
EDIT____Changed my fuel filter again, by the hole it must have needed it.

I am sure this was a very wise decision that you made. Look at all this mess in your old tank.... Your E34 will thank you for the new tank

Now i don't smell gas and also lost the occasional hesitation since the new change, also about 30min ago was the first time i put more than 1/2 tank in it, full tank of premium for the e34. She is one happy car.

Thumbs up

It runs perfect! I'm really pleased with it . It's my first bmw and now I understand the appeal. It's slow obviously 525i but a great car. The interior is mint accept the driver seat is torn.everything works no lights on the dash ! The price was awesome . I think I got it because of the gold exterior. This is def the worst color they painted these cars

Not a big fan off that rare factory option known as "baby poop brown" paint so sought out by BMW purists lol.


Think i heard it called "executive biege" once too.. Hahahahaha quiet optomistic

Re: Post your E34 pics

Currently driving a '94 525i myself. 242K miles though hahaha. Is your front driver seat hard leather now, or still feeling squishy?

Finally replaced my lights today. The old ones were rough. Broken mounts on to the car, lenses, notice the low beam on the one dangling by one mount. New ones have shiny new rings around them and soon to have new lenses b/c i didn't realize they were pitted.
