New to forum. E34 525i RHD

Forgive me if some of you have seen this intro on several other sites as well.

The name's Jhay.

Philippines born, Canadian raised.

Currently living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

This is my first BMW.

My list before hand were
1991 Nissan 240sx coupe, Silvia conversion.
1986 200sx turbo
2002 Jetta tdi
2007 Jetta 2.0t
2008 Golf Gti
1984 Ford Ranger
2008 Honda Ruckus, 150cc engine swap, 8feet/stretched.

I have to give thanks to the Ruckus. For selling it, was able to provide me enough money for a plane ticket and the car.

I flew to a different province to pick the car up. Scary thing was, I never had seen or touched the car. I had 2 friends luckily where the car was and were able to check it out.

Here's a little tribute.





My last ride video

well thats that.....now to the present.











1989 BMW E34 525i
Mint interior(cig burn on passenger seat)
Manual sport cloth seats
132,xxxkms(when purchased)
17 ACS rims(not sure if its real? how do i tell)
Sunroof delete
Eurospec bumper trim(no side marker on rubstrip) and rear windshield(no 3rd brake light)
Aftermarket deck, 6 disc CD changer.

Im pretty sure there are more things I haven't added.

Came with some problems. Alot of the electrical wasnt wired up....brakes were't tightened...brake pedal set to far in..etc.etc

I have yet to get the car up and safetied to run around legally. So to wait till next year.

Got plans of lowering it, my friends parents have an E34 as well but don't need the suspension. So gonna do a trade in the spring. Also remove tint and new paint job.

Oh and I just picked up a set of OEM E39 Style 65's for under 600 cdn!



I just came back from getting the lips machined and here's another crappy Blackberry picture..



I'll be around

Thanks guys.

Nice ride, welcome to MAX, an e34 was my baby at one time and I really enjoyed it something about the stance is superb in the e34 chassis! Thinking about picking up one thats on Max for sale, but can't get past the automatic!
