The e34 540i / 6 speed Registery. Register your 540/6 today!

Hello, there has been some speculation over the current rarity of the e34 540i/6.

We know 3,206 were produced. 1577 of witch are LHD / US models.
Id like to start a list of who and where they are maybe purchase cost as well.

This way we can track the current 6 speed population and see how many are owned by true enthusiasts and how many are completely off the road or in bad owner limbo.

1) imae34driver - costed 1,900$ - california / OC
2) got clays 540- costed 87$ lol. - Pensilvania
3)mesa performace's - msport - $? - california / OC
4)gixxerboys incredable msport - cost? - north carolina
5) cameroguys - 540ia 6 spd swaped msport - seattle washington
6)slippym395 - 540i msport - USA
7)ATL530i - 540iA swapped - lake laneir
8) cognac - 540/6 msport - NC
9)M540fella's - 540/6 - s/c - TN

Thats all ive found so far.. If you own a 6 speed e34 540i please post your info so i can ad it.
4.0 swapped 530/5 speeds welcome. Just no M5's please.

Thank you.

I don't know either. Clearly the rest of the enthusiasts aren't quite as enthusiastic as we are.

Got my car for $500 with an auto tranny, it cost me about $1700 to transfer it. 94 with 160k on it. Its fun to be one of 3200!

I considered saying that but it seemed to dickish.
He may not be a factory 540i/6 but he still is a 540/6.

One of the more rare self built ones.. Credit is do.. Its easier to buy one lol.

I've changed every single thing on that list to aftermarket anyways. So it would not have mattered to me. Mines factory though.

They are pretty darn good.. Even though i am more than ready to do something else now, i still dont feel the desire to sell it.

I'd rather just park it and drive it 5x a year than sell it just buy another car .. I think it is e30 time for me(again)... My first car was an e30

An e30 340i would be an Awesome project!!!! Thats always been my dream car but sadly I dont fit in a e30 very well, my body is sized to much on the Hungarian side of the family versus the itty bitty German side.

There was an e30 with a M60B40 in it running around Seattle a few years back. I don't know if the car is still around.
