@Mike....Nice find. My 1st E34 was this color. Bought it in TX, a '92 535i 5 speed w/60k. Ended up selling it to my son when I found another one. BTW, it caught on fire a couple years ago due to the fan relay under the cowl. Depending on where it came from, I would highly recommend (2) things.
1. Change the 30amp fan fuse to a 20amp
2. Make sure the wiper/fan area under the cowl is free of any leaves.

What happens, as I understand it, when the fan is on "HIGH", usually when it was cold out, and you put the heater fan on HI, after several minutes, the resistor pack would over heat & if there was any debris down by the resistor pack, it could catch on fire. Once it caught fire, with the fan "fanning" the flame, it really got a fire going. Anyway, that's what happened to ours. My son never cleaned out the cabin filter area from leaves & the resistor pack caught them on fire. Just keep it clean & just in case, reduce the fuse size so it will blow before the pack over heats. Hope this helps.

It appears that this is a "known" issue with the E34's. I searched this a couple years ago & found several posts on it but for the life of me can't find it now. I'll keep looking & update this if I find the link.
