Hi My Name's Paul and thought i'd register on here to get tips on keeping my car looking as good as it does, general maintenance and upgrade tips, etc.

The Car : I recently purchased a 1994 E34 520 24v, Alpina Replica
Have wanted a beemer for ages and after selling my last car as i work in london and didn't really need one, decided i was going to find my self a nice older beemer as i prefer the old shape. Was original looking at the coupe's but with another child on the way thought it best to get something a bit bigger.
I was original looking and getting an old 540 estate that i'd seen but the insurance was a tad steep considering it would only been driven to the train station and at weekends.
Then i stumpled across a very good condition M reg 520i that had been very well looked after with a factory fitted Alpina Bodykit with all the badges and 18" alpina wheels the car is near immaculate and runs very well for a 17 year old car with 140000 on the clock.
My signature picture is what it looked like on the day i bought it, will post some more pics when I can give the car a clean.
