The BMW E34 was the third generation of the BMW 5 Series and was produced from 1988 through to 1996 and came intitially only as a 4 door salon, with the range extended in 1992 with an estate version, referred to as the "Touring". With a nine different engine variants, a number of trim specifications on offer and numerous 'options' the E34 was to many, the executive car of choice / aspiration and with its exceptional driving characteristics, especially in Autobahn storming 'M5' format, the E34 offers all the practicality of modern motoring but with the classic 'shark-nosed' BMW styling of old.

Delivered in June 1996, through the BMW Chenhalls Ltd to Mr Searle this wonderful  BMW 5 series was specified to a high standard and comes with the following specification:

  • 525i model
  • 2.5 litre - (M50B25TU engine)
  • 5 Speed Manual ZF Gearbox
  • SE Shadowline specification
  • Finished in Sorrent Blue metallic
  • Silvergrey velour interior
  • Drivers / passenger centre armrest
  • 'Sport' steering wheel with airbag
  • Electric tilt & slide sunroof 
  • Electric Mirrors (heated)
  • Electric front / rear windows
  • BMW Style 5 alloys
  • Rear headrests
  • First Aid Kit / Warning Triangle

A relative rarity on the roads today, the exterior of this stunning facelift model, note the revised mirror design, lowered 'body coloured' sill extensions etc, remains in excellent condition. The Sorrent Blue metallic  presents really well, with just a few minor marks, commensurate to her age and low mileage. Panel gaps are consistent around the car, lenses are free from damage and the original 15" alloys remain in good condition too, its wonderful to offer such an original example, no silly add-ons; she's just as she left the factory!

Opening the doors, and whilst some may laugh at this, this car smells just like an E34 should and the quality of the interior remains impeccable. The seats are free from fade or damage and function perfectly allowing the driver to find the perfect position for any journey ahead. The quality extends throughout the interior, typically Germanic, with function and form doing exactly as the original designers / engineers intended.

Mechanically the 525i is in great condition too, we've driven over 300 miles in this car and she can't be faulted. The M50 2.5 litre, straight six engine, fires instantly and settles into one of the smoothest tick-overs you're ever likely to come across. The ZF 5 speed manual gear box, rarely seen, is a delight and with a perfectly weighted steering and suspension set up, these E34's can really handle 'spirited' driving should you wish to 'push-on' with the performance to match too!  She has obviously been cosseted and well cared for by her previous owners, the first of whom kept the car for some 15 years. The supporting history folder is great too with a good selection of MOTs confirming her mileage (now 89k miles), dealer pack including all supplementary booklets and service book and invoicing confirming the car has been serviced no fewer than 18 times with a further 6 stamps for brake / coolant fluid changes. In recent years the car has also benefited from a major service, including front & rear discs / pads, control arms and a new clutch, therefore ensuring that she'll offer miles of trouble free motoring.....we would drive her anywhere at a moments notice!

Without doubt one of the best presented BMW E34's available and coming with the all important supporting history this car not only looks fantastic but also offers a great driving experience, a great modern classic and is ready to be cherished by her new owner.
