Selling my daily driver E34 as I have replaced it with an E38 740 sport. Have owned this car for 10 years and regularly maintained it. I used it commuting Toronto/Kitchener daily and on monthly runs to Ottawa. Regular oil changes. Redline synthetics in manual transmission and limited slip differential. Used Sunoco 94 its whole life. Major maintenance by Bruno at racing king.

Runs great, pulls hard, smooth and powerful. Starts first try every day. Quiet diff and tranny. Dunlop Graspic DS-1 winter tires (75%) on stock basket weaves. Has ASC (traction control). Good leather. All pixels work. OBC fully lights. OEM stereo with 6 disc changer in trunk. Power heated seats (not twisted, heat works). Wired for subwoofer/amp (not included). No wiper or blower fan issues (both replaced). Everything works except rear passenger window and door locks. No hack jobs or surprises.

- OEM M5 clear corners on front
- rare euromoldings (all are intact and undamaged)
- Aftermarket rear clear corners
- Lowered on Sachs sporting kit from BMA with recent Bilstein HD shocks.

Minor rust bubbling at bottom of doors. Had unfortunate mishap during 5mph u-turn this winter slipped on ice and hit icy snowbank at -30 degrees, cracked front bumper - NO damage to fender. (Fil at Eurostyle likely has one. I have OEM paint which is included). Leather on steering wheel peeling. One interior rear door panel starting to delaminate.

Still respectable as daily driver, or a great winter/second car. Optionally part it and use driveline in an M30 5 speed swap into your E30 as I did with my cabrio. See thread here --> http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111290

$1200 OBO. Can throw in set of 17" staggered style 5's for $600 (at that price only if you buy the car) - they need refinishing. See last photo for a picture of them on the car a few years ago.

Wow! 500,000 km's. That's a testiment to the durability of the old M30. I bet you could still see the cross hatching in the cylinder walls.

GL with the sale

"- EML (throttle by wire) rebuilt 6 months ago"

Is this car DBW (drive-by-wire)?!?!?! In 1992? Say it ain't so!

(I'm a staunch advocate of throttle cables).

some E34 M30's had EML, some didn't

Yep - the drive by wire came on later year M30's with ASC. Pretty advanced for 1992.
