It's about 1500 a year for me if I went to insure it as my daily!

The 12v has a far sweeter sound imo

Here's me in my old 24v non vanos 520i

I got that car like that...

And here's a vid of the black machine

Prefer the 12v any day

Re: E34 525i.

My dad had a 94' 520i 24v a few years ago, it was brilliant, very smooth and very powerful.

I would love one, but my insurance would be over 2,000 a year.

Great looking and great driving cars! Good work on yours, the rear lights look very 80's and cool!

Re: E34 525i.

It's still alive and kicking, just need the time to sort it

So I got up one morning and said, the paint needs to be restored


Whole bonnet



Then the sides



Rear quarter



Boot


RH quarter


Roof


Just need to decide what to do with the doors, but it's come up very very well, I'm delighted to see it shining once more
