A whole bunch of E34s were found in this southern Bulgarian warehouse, and they're apparently all unused and unregistered

We hear about barn finds all the time, but this is one that’s gotten us more excited than most. In a warehouse in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria, 11 E34 BMW 5-series were found, and apparently, they haven’t ever been used or registered.

The fleet of 11 5ers is made up of 10 saloons and one estate. Having a look through the images posted by the same Facebook page that uploaded the above video, it seems to be a mix of 520i and 525i models.

As for why they’ve all been languishing in a warehouse for so long, we can’t be sure. One Facebook user reckons they were purchased for a rental car service, but for whatever reason weren’t ever put to use.

The cars are apparently for sale, with several users claiming that the going rate is €15,000. This seems a little steep given that the 5ers don’t look to have been stored in the best environment. Then there’s the issue of registering them: according to a local media outlet, it won’t be possible to do this in the country. One convoluted solution would be to register a car in Germany as a retro vehicle, before importing back to Bulgaria, the publication suggests.

The cars do look to be in remarkable condition when viewed close up (we recommend you have a gander at the full gallery), though, and opportunities like this don’t exactly come up all that often. Would you?

Another theory is that they were bought for use by Bulgarian deputies, but they chose Mercedes instead. Seems weird to start a rental car company with brand new BMW’s.

If that was fhe case, they aren’t new, the theory is that they were bought for the 39th National Assembly and that was 2001-2005.
High-end rental cars aren’t that rare, I was in Germany and we got a G31 530Xd 5-series. Great car, pulled like a train.
