I bought the car pretty much beaten down in July 2015…. exact 2 years ago. I fixed it up got technical inspection and went straight to big roadtrip for work in switzerland

it started right to be a good partner in crime… it is dirt cheap to run because of lpg and started me saving money after buying and fixin g it up.

and well while the engine is really not the one to pull anything with basically no torque and 150 hp the car got me and my friends everywhere…..

besides the one time the almost never needed fuel pump died…..
I have driven the car over 41.000km in those two years, that is once around the globe. In winter summer spring and autumn. Had awesome roadtrips canoe tours and slept partied and did way over the edge drives with it. It was fun

So this car was always a partner and good friend kept me and my friends safe and got us everywhere we wanted to go…… but….now it state is beaten up and for me just no longer justifiably doable.

Interior is pretty well

but in the end… this thing has travellled 293.000 km and it took quite a beating by the previous owner with low AF springs and dampers…..and it was bought in the real south of bavaria…. so a lot of snow and salt.

most of the visable rust is not technically relevant. Actually underneath it is looking a bit better, but still for new inspection there are two spots to weld on the front wheel arches nothing major though.

But the reason I am selling this peace is that I got no time to fix it myself, it needs basically new control arms front, rear axle rubber bearing (common issue… fixed it already once in my old 535i) and tie rod which is two parts and you need both. I think that actually was it… parts wise 600€ and good to go, but it will not be an easy job I took a deep look at all bolts and I was like oh that fight will take a couple of hours. And after that it still would look beaten up and painting a car is certainly not my specialty and I also got an offer for my buddies Volvo which is in mint condition…..
So if anyone is interested in an E34 520i T with lpg after all this readings leave a comment….. I still have my M5 though so E34s will still be a big part of my life =)
