Was there any "issues" with the computer and missing auto box?

Do you have a write up?

Hey Guys, I got an old, well loved, well taken care of e34 that sleeps under a cover when its not nice outside.
Its also got a slew of tasteful oem+ upgrades. She drives better than my new car, but only comes out on the weekends...





Like old cars, I also like old boats... shes a 5'er - as in 1950's

beauty car, e34 touring is my dream car but its really hard to find a good one - would love to hear more about the touring 540i/6 as well

I just moved to town from out west and my current daily is an e34 525i that I picked up before heading out here. shes definitely a work in progress but i got lucky and snagged some style 5s off kijiji over the weekend that will go a long way

2003 540iT M-Sport Wagon

This is my ride. I believe there are only about 200 M-Sport wagons in North America and so I would guess less than 20 in Canada. I only saw one other one in Vancouver.

How do you tell if it's an M-Tech wagon? The front end is the same as the M5, the rear has a unique 4" exhaust and lower trim, and inside the M badges on the door sills plus the grey headliner are all good indicators.

Very Nice! My fake Msport touring is dying from rust... Esp the hatch!

Where did you get the trailer hitch? I have one that looks similar - I welded it myself.

The hitch is a custom one but similar to the OEM euro one. It’s from http://www.eandhhitchshop.com/
