    Welcome. Parked=sticky=pinned. It's a useful thread for lots of people, and they pinned it to prevent the thread from getting lost in the list of other threads.

    EDIT: Just go to the 5-series forum ( and F10 subforum), and at the top-right you'll see "search forum". You can also post a thread there, asking for info. You're more likely to get the info you want if you post in the right subforum.

    Welcome. Those E60s are nice cars.

    For the exact colour, look in the engine bay on one of the shock towers. The sticker should be there. For example, my E12/8 was "Mountain Mist Blue", and my current Z3 is "Atlantablau Metallic".

    Or you can look up your VIN at https://www.vindecoderz.com/, and find the colour like that.

    '88 530i
    1) Model Year: 16 July, 1988
    2) Model Number: 530i (m30b30)
    3) Design generation: e34
    4) Color: Bronzitbeige
    5) Major options: winter package
    6) Modifications: m5 suspension, chip by an ex BMW engineer who worked on the cars development. (I'm in Germany) increasing the power from the standard 188ps to that of the 535i, 211ps while maintaining the required emissions.
    7) Use: Daily driver
    8) Awards or Accomplishments: car is now 30 years old making it eligible for German Oldtimer (classic car) status. That means increased value, cheaper taxes and possibly better insurance options.
    9) Ownership history: I'm the 4th registered owner. The car rolled out of the factory on the 16th July, 1988. Was first registered by a dealership on the 17th of August, 1988. Second owner (really the first) bought and registered the car on the 24th of October, 1988. He sold the car in December of 2008. Third owner was a kid who sold it to me in January 2010. After a few months of repair I registered it on the 16th of August 2010. Its still going strong.

    Inaugural post. I figured it should be here. I plan on making a thread specific to this vehicleís problems, my hypothesis and diagnosis, the steps taken to get it back to stock performance, and eventually maybe some performance upgrades.

    My name is Duncan and I went to school for motorcycle maintenance in Phoenix, AZ. Specializing in Harley Davidson and BMW I became familiar with German engineering and V-twins. This is the first BMW Iíve owned and I plan to do it justice.

    1) 1998
    2) 540i
    3) E39
    4) Alpinesilber/ Aubergine and Black interior
    5) Carphone
    6) The undercarriage skid plate was removed, there is an old iPhone plug in the glovebox, honestly donít know much about the vehicle
    7) Comfortable and fun daily driver
    8) None
    9) Bought it a couple weeks ago on Craigslist for a grand and major trans problems. Iím fairly certain Iíve diagnosed the problem. Stay tuned for updates.

    Thanks!

    4. Schwarz chassis/body
    5 Black leather with technical trim (I think thatís what itís called) with winter package, m sport suspension with 17Ē wheels.
    5. 5 speed manual.
    6. Facelift lights all around (aftermarket, otherwise everything is getting repaired or changed to be stock at the moment).
    7. Daily driver
    8. Every fix I have managed to do successfully on this car is an achievement for me.
    9. I only know of three previous owners in my family. Iíd be the fourth in the family to own it, although I never actually remember seeing it being driven by anyone. Before the First owner I know of, my cousin, it was at a dealership and am unaware of other previous owners. Was involved in a hit and run accident with the second to last owner before me. From what Iíve seen and from what Iíve done, the car is in much better hands being under my ownership/fatherís ownership. He bought it and I bought it from him not too long after, and we have it together but Iíve done all repairs except for a clutch job and a refrigerant pressure sensor replacement. (Clutch at a shop and the sensor with our mechanic friend due to dealing with refrigerant).

    ***If you guys would like to see it, I posted a video on it a few days ago on my YouTube channel! I have done a few repairs on it since then. If you watch it, excuse my awkwardness. Lol.
