But no, this auto is virgin clean and virgin tight. I will give a very detailed and honest description so read on! New seat motors and cables. The car will pass inspection. They are a bit harder to work on but I really love the car and the way it drives. The 535i was replaced by the V8 engined 530i and 540i models in 1993. Just in case anybody is interested in a 5 speed manual transmission out of a 1994 530i I will be going to the yard and pulling it out of the car tomorrow. You could get more power with the same amount of gas from the 540i.
The car must be level when filling up the gearbox oil, otherwise you will end up with incorrect oil level in the gearbox. Kind of tough to do that with a paper manual. No mess, no waste - easy to use. Could I use a manual transmition from a E36 that has the M50 engine? Having said that its still a great car. It's a small bore engine with a crapload of valves.
Over the course of the E34 generation, the 525i Touring, 530i, 530i Touring, 540i and M5 models were sold in North America. . The thing I noticed with the 530i V8 is that it is smooth and stable. Initially, the V8 models were differentiated from other models by the wide grill; in 1994 the wide grill became available on other models. When you for example buy a used car it is always a good idea to change all it's fluids, including the gearbox oil if not a proper service book can prove it has been done recently. I will be making the assumption that you are buying a non-alusil engine.
The earlier model, powered by the , was not sold in North America. It was only produced in 1995 and just 298 units were built. The gearbox oil in for example the E34 series is not, as many believes, a lifetime oil that never needs to be changed. Works great for filling transmissions and differentials. Heated seats on both sides work flawlessly. The E34 generation included the first 5 Series with the 525iX, and the first V8 in a 5 Series. If you find anything around give us a holler.
If you wish to have the car shipped I will work with your shippers to ensure a smooth pick-up and delivery. Perhaps it was oil or some such thing. The only difference I've seen between my car and the straight 6 E34's manual or auto is that my engine mounts and possibly the flex disk guibo fail faster 8 years instead of 10 due to the massive weight of the V8. Models While Europe was given a large selection of engine choices and combinations, the North American market was more limited. Total production was 1,333,412 units. I am driving the best maintained 1994 530i V8 you've ever seen. Will this 5 speed transmission just bolt right to my M50 engine? I find the engine is quite reliable and stable.
Transmission options were a offered from 1994 to 1995 in North America for 1995, and from 1993 to 1996 in Europe or a.

Besides the ones imported to Canada in the last few years due to the 15 year rule, there are a handful in mainland Europe. The fluid assists in the lubrication and heat disputation of the transmission, and even though it is in a closed environment, the fluid can become old and contaminated.
Ed, Thanks for the info. The drain plug 23 11 7 546 876 with a 17 mm hex head. You need to drop the whole exhaust system including ofcourse the nuts that hold it to the exhaust manifold. Australia was the final market that received one of the M-Sport 1995 540i 6 speeds. Canada also got a special version — the M540i — which was similar to the American 540i Sport but had even more M5 parts, such as 345 mm floating front rotors, 18-inch M-Parallel wheels, and various trim pieces.
Raise the car using a lift. The V8 version, which replaced the six-cylinder 535i in the lineup, was powered by the new engine and was available in sedan and wagon body styles. Mein auto Auto ist gut. Now start slowly to add oil through the filler hole until it begins to overflow. Also, fuel economy improved by ten percent, and a change from a timing belt to a timing chain improved reliability.
The red B10 Bi-turbo photographed next to the Concorde for Alpina's brochure was left hand drive too see the 4th picture taken in 2006 in Germany.

Lower mileage cars have alot of expensive maintenance creeping up, alot of things that will soon go wrong that have not been repaired. The car was rearended and put on the lot in January so who knows how much longer they will keep it before it goes to the crusher. Stick with a 6-cylinder stick-shift if you want to enjoy the well-earned reputation for reliability that the E34 has.
