    Please don't take this the wrong way mate im not trying to be offensive your car looks great, but the amount of time, money and effort you have spent... why didn't you just buy an e34 M5? or 530. 535 etc? I've done the same so many times, loved a car and spent far too much on it when i could have just bought the top of the range in the first place with every thing already there...

    Rob,

    Get yourself a set of m-system II alloys aka. throwing stars!

    Stunning on an E34

    I think quarry had a set for about £250 not that long ago

    Rob,
    HI mate i understand, i did have the same thought myself but as this car is only a 1.8 and my work horse i want to keep the insurance and running costs as low as possible.

    i do intend on buying another car as a project with a larger engine.

    i dont mind spending money on this car as i intend on keeping for a very very long time

    They are perfectly sound reasons mate, got a friend who does the same, weekend car and work horse. Found this on the bay, think the wheels are the above ones? if you wanted to see them on an e34.

    I will have a go at photoshopping a black set on for you mate!!! Give us 30 mins or so!

    I love the E34's, ultimate pimp wagon! I would say the above mentioned wheels, would suit yours spot on! Personally I would look at painting the chrome round the doors matt black, or even gloss black! To tie them in to your spoiler / bumpers!

    Then you could always look at something like the interior,

    Don't know if the touring is that different from the saloon? But tuns cheaper!

    Like I said mate, will have a mess in photoshop and post a pic! I love doing this!lol
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    A very rough go mate! Just stretched your origional wheels out to give you an idea!

    Larger, silver!



    Anth and silver lip!



    And dark / black!



    Darkened the chrome surrounds and also painted the side + front skirt mate.
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!
