    FS: 1995 E34 Touring 525iT White / Parchment

    SOLD

    Moving to Europe in a few weeks, selling all the cars.

    I bought this pristine e34 touring in December and then took it to the shop to get all the mechanicals updated so it would be a reliable daily driver for many years down the road. Currently 149k miles but with all the updates it should be good for many more.

    Not a speck of rust anywhere. The Alpine White paint is in great condition. Parchment leather interior is also in great condition - no rips or stains.

    New since December: Bilstein sport struts, H&R touring springs, brake pads, rotors, power steering pump & hoses, radiator, water pump, thermostat & housing, valve cover gasket, rear bumper, floor mats, rear hatch struts, glass struts, and repainted the roof rails plus took care of a bunch of other little things. Everything is minty fresh and works perfectly.

    sold!!

    These are pictures from when I bought it in December. Just imagine the same thing but lower and with fresh roof rails and bumper. I will get some new pictures up in a bit

    This one is completely stock except for the struts/springs. Would make a good candidate for a manual swap project since the car is in such good shape. That was my plan until jobs changed...

    This reminds me of a car (Touring) I saw on eBay last year. It was from Tenn, at a dealer's. I think it was one owner and absolutely pristine. Was it this one?

    Maybe so. I bought it here in Tennessee from a dealer in November. We were looking for a newer BMW but this was in much better shape than any of the newer cars we found.

    This just might be it, the thing was in pristine condition as I mentioned. Shame you are selling it.

    Bump for a nice touring. Our 95s are running strong @ 80Kmi & 142kmi with still almost certainly their factory transmissions untouched except for fluid & filter changes.

    This has my Yakima roof rack on it, but the car will come with the factory rack.

    I actually saw this car when I was in Nashville over the Christmas holidays visiting family. Very clean from what I could see driving down the road! Best of all things E34T in my opinion. Alpine / Parchment and it's a 1995.

    And i've seen it around the same area since ltflint and I did that day as well. Looks to be clean.

    About 100% sure that this is the same one referenced as the "dealer" car from end of last year.

    Good luck with the sale. Hope the car stays in the Nashville area.

    Hey Tandem, since I am in the market for either an e46 touring (the practical choice?) or an e34 touring (the choice which makes the mrs shake her head) how would you compare the two? Feel free to PM me if you do not wish to diverge in this FS thread.

    Beautiful e34 btw, wish it had a black interior.

    The e34 is sold!

    Comparing the two, the E46 feels sportier, especially with a manual tranny. The e34 is a better highway cruiser. Spacewise, the e34 isn't much wider but it has a lot more space in the rear. I prefer the looks of the e34 but you do get the feel that it is a much older car just because the design of everything goes back to the eighties.

    Nothing wrong with cars designed in the eighties!
