Currently I drive a GTi6, but keep finding myself wanting an E34 5 series. The price of them has fallen so low recently, I find myself being drawn to buying one, and I've always loved the V8 growl so I'm thinking it would have to be a 540.
Ive done a few quotes and looked at the MPG and provided I dont boot it all the time (Im in my mid 30's so it doesnt happen very often ) it looks like it wont be that much more than the GTi6 to insure and run. I might even be able to keep the Peugeot as well!
Ive been trying to read as much as I can, but I havent actually seen a 540i manual for sale anywhere! Am I likely to be able to find one? Do they go for about the same price as the autos? I know I'll have to be prepared to travel; my GTi6 was a 200 mile round trip to buy
Anyone got any suggestions on where to look for one - obviously Autotrader and Pistonheads, but there seems to be so many owners forums...
