    Hi guys,

    I usually drive a 2.5V6 Mitsubishi Galant which is a great car, unfortunately it'll be off the road for a little while so in the interim I bought myself a 1989 530i SE auto which has done 140k miles. I got it for a bargain price of £500!

    I've got a few issues with it to sort out (corroded fuel pipe coming down from the tank, key stuck in the boot lock, snapped rear coil spring) but I'm happy with it for the price, especially since I can get classic insurance for it. No doubt I'll be bothering you all in the technical forums! I've attached a few pics of it.

    welcome to the forum car looks ok once you sort the niggles you'll never look back to anything else
    There's an alternative. There's always a third way, and it's not a combination of the other two ways. It's a different way

    I see you've made you're decision now lets see you enforce it.

    Hi guys, thanks for the warm welcome I gave it it's first wash and wax today and it's dazzling. Parts and manuals for the E34 are much more readily available and cheaper than for my Galant so it shouldn't be too difficult to sort out the little problems.

    Amos: Hehe yes, although didn't realise it was a boy until it was too late
