    hello all,
    I think i might be asking a few questions on this forum so heres a Hi.
    My girlfriend and I have just bought a '94 525tds touring yesterday from a bloke in london village.
    drove it home fine- its certainly a cruiser and already i can see it using less fuel than our other car - a mazda rx3 with rotary engine.

    we got it for trips away and mtbing- loads bikes easy. and I can sleep in it when its too shitty to put up a tent...

    its got leather and seems to all be in good nick. twin sunroof, manual, good stereo, tidy carpets, good paint, 160,000 miles on clock. Paid £900 with mot till july- after searching for a while that seems an Ok price? To me its a lot of car for the money.

    One thing that amazes me is how smooth and quiet the engine is!
    alex

    Cheers!

    anyone have spare owners handbook or know where i can get one?
    I'm thinking that BMW owners handbooks dont quite cover the same amount of Diy stuff that old car hand books did? stuff like how to adjust tappets etc. In fact-do they even cover oil changes?

    You can get the Haynes manual online for the e34 for free, not sure of the diesel coverage though
