    Hi everyone,

    Thought i'd introduce myself. Been surfing about a bit and looks like a great forum

    I'm Dan, based in Worcestershire.

    I've got a E34 530i V8 Manual Saloon in Techno Violet, which i absolutely love. My true dream machine an E36 M3 in violet, so when i've finised with the 5, i'll be looking about.

    I'm a keen detailer i have my own website which i run as a part-time hobby, i'm a true car nut, had many cars inc.

    306 xsi
    Clio 172
    206 GTI
    Impreza STI
    Clio 182 Trophy
    200sx
    Civic S GT (day job company car)
    Volvo V70 R
    Mazda 6
    BMW 328i MSport Coupe in Avus Blue + individual blue piping leather
    BMW 328i MSport Coupe in Montreal Blue
    BMW 328i Convertible - M3 replica

    My previous two 328i sports...





    And one of my 328i cab...



    So on to my current BMW....

    This is my first E34. I fancied something a little different after having 3 E36's. When i sold the last 328i sport i was really after an M3, natural progression and all that. But i saw this advertised and fancied a little winter project.

    These piccies are from the PH advert:





    Its a 1995 'N' BMW 530i V8 Manual in Techno Violet, one of the last of line i believe... I take it Techno Violet is an extremely rare colour - as i've not seen many BMW's of this era where specified with it or even as a manual!! It also has full cream leather and wood pack.

    The spec:
    • 3.0ltr V8
    • 215bhp from factory,
    • 290Nm of torque,
    • Sport kit,
    • Cream leather + wood interior,

    Its been smoked in during its life, so leather just needs a good old clean.






    I must add that all these piccies are the pre detailed state!!!

    The service history has gaps (not too bad) and there are a few issues that need attention, all of which aren't show stoppers, but will require some time (and money!) to sort out. Hence making it the prefect project.

    Its now tax'd and serviced.

    Anyway...i'll leave it there for now.

    All the best,
    Dan
