1994 BMW 525i Manual - NCT 02/13

SOLD

152k Miles
NCT until 02/2013
4 New 225/60/15 Falken ZE912 tyres on BBS Alloys.
Full Black Leather
Electric Windows
Electric Sunroof & Mirrors

I bought this car from BMW Specialist AC Car Sales in September 2007 with 89k mls. Originally imported from the UK in 1997, AC Car Sales carried out significant work prior to my ownership, as described below:

Work carried out by AC Car Sales
Head gasket replaced, head was lightly skimmed and pressure tested.
New viscous fan coupling.
Radiator hoses replaced.
New Idle Control Valve
Full service carried out.


Items replaced during my ownership (excluding regular scheduled servicing)
Radiator
Water Pump (Metal Impellor)
Front Control Arms (Aluminum) OEM Lemforder
Front Thrust Arms (Aluminum) OEM Lemforder
Front Control Arm Bushes (750iL) OE Genuine BMW
Front Track Rods OEM Lemforder
Rear Pitman Arms OEM Lemforder
Rear Subframe Bushes OEM Lemforder
Front Brake Discs Brembo High Carbon
Front Brake Pads OEM Textar
Rear Brake Discs Brembo High Carbon
Rear Brake Pads OEM Textar
Cam Sensor Unknown
Crank Sensor Unknown
Blue Water Temp Sensor Genuine BMW
Air Intake Boot Genuine BMW

Modifications
750iL Front Control Arm Bushes.
The front thrust arm bushes are a big E34 weak spot, so I fitted bushes from a BMW 750il. Unlike polybushes, these don’t transmit any more noise of harshness but are stronger and last longer. Obviously there is no characteristic 55mph shimmy present.

Racing King Delrin Subframe Inserts.
These inserts slighty stiffen the rear subframe bushes. The rear subframe bushes have also been changed recently. This is not a nice job on the E34, but makes the handling so much tighter.

Maintenance
Serviced according to the BMW service schedule (OIL/INSP1/OIL/INSP2 sequence). It was usually serviced when the last green dash light came on, which equates to about 6-7k mls. Only Fuchs oils and OEM Mann filters were used.

*DETAILS TO BE ADDED LATER*

Good Points
NCT until 02/2013.
4 New Falken tyres.
Desirable Manual gearbox.
Excellent condition.
Drives very well with plenty of power.
No expense has been spared on maintenance.

Bad Points
Headlining is sagging slightly
Few minor paint imperfections

Overall this is an excellent example of the brilliant E34 five series. It has served me well for nearly 65k miles however I am now working in the UK and have a company car. The car is located in North County Dublin. 087-7686405

Folks, this is my brothers car.
He is a complete e34 guru and as you can see has really looked after it.

As a cheap car, it ticks so many boxes
nct /check
6 pot sound / check
comfortable / check
plenty of poke / check

And they are also probably the most solid 5 series ever made.

I'd a Calypso Red 525i myself a while back, loved it. Wanted one in this colour and with this spec though. Tried talking the wife into this, but no go I'm afraid. :) Good luck with the sale.

A very nice example of what is one of the best BMW's ever. I am a big E34 fan too, the build quality in them is outstanding. Hopefully it goes to a good home GLWTS.
