Before I introduce my new car, I should probably introduce myself. My name is Alex, I'm a student teacher from Glasgow and a long time BMW fan. I can usually be found on a boat working at sailing events or chipping lumps from the tee off on the golf course. I'm often told by friends that I've grown old before my time for my beige pastimes.
Now for the car. She's a late E34 520i, built in the final months of 1995 and was owned by the same gentleman for the first fourteen years of her life (then one other owner before me). She's been very well cared for, having been serviced by the supplying main dealer every year from new and using only Castrol Edge.
Since purchasing the car last month I've had a full Inspection 2 carried out, radiator replaced, disks and pads replaced all round and the rear subframe bushes changed (all at our local BMW dealer).
My plan is to keep the car completely stock, with the exception of adding M Parallel alloys when I find a good set on fleabay. Although she's already in fantastic condition for her age, I'm aiming to bring her back to a near factory fresh condition and start getting involved with the local BMW scene.
Looking forward to chatting with you all really soon!
