    I have just acquired a Nov 1996 E34 520i and are new to BMW's history.
    I need to buy some body parts and have spotted references to the 'E34 facelift' model. I assumed the facelift meant the next model ...E38!
    Can anyone enlighten me on the details of this facelift and what it may mean to my model, so I can be sure I buy the correct parts and not waste my money and time?
    Once I have the answer, does anyone have the correct...
    - original OEM or patterned nearside front wing in artic silver?
    - the offside black bumper towhitch cover next to the fog light?
    or
    know a good place near lincolnshire where I can get them, new or used is ok?

    BMW generally facelift a particular model roughly halfway in to its lifespan before a virtually new model is. In the case of the E34 it received a very mild cosmetic facelift which resulted in a wider kidney grille on the front and I think some small changes to the bumpers. If I remember correctly the facelift came in around 1993 or 94 before the E39 5 series replaced the E34 in around 1996/97. I can't help you as far as parts go but I hope this helps anyway!
    To do: Far too much.....

    Me: 04 E46 320d Sport in Titan Silver

    The Mrs: 59 E92 320d Sport in Space Grey....now replaced by a 61 plate Z4 2.0L S-drive M-Sport in Deep Sea Blue with beige leather

    I'm just a lottery win away from that 335i.........and a Series 3 Discovery..........and an old Mini.........and an E30 325i........
