Hey there, my name is Daniel and I'm 19 years old. Just a dude who likes cars and don't have "better" shit to do. I'm currently living in Dingolfing, Germany. I moved to Germany from Norway 2 years ago due to school, and well.. I decided to stay. I've already been through a few cars during my time of having a drivers license, but I'll tell you about my current (and recently bought) car. It's a 1993 BMW 525i (E34). I bought it for 1000V$, which is what i love about Germany. Cheap BMW! It's not in perfect condition. The paint isn't very good, it's missing the fog lights, and has a bit of "cheaply" done modifications, although that's a matter of taste. For some reason it has a 535i badge on the trunk. It's sitting on coilovers, but if they're from any good brand, i dont know. Sadly it's not registered at the moment, so i'll need to sort that out ASAP.

Looks really nice. Borbets look like a perfect match to that E34. Is it manual?

Well, I plan to do some "visual mods" at first. I hope to be able to get it repainted some day, and maybe an engine swap.

Lame.

They're alright, but I want some bigger wheels eventually. And yes, it is manual.

You love it really, lol.

Car is looking good, needs the 535i de-badging and a bigger set of wheels as you've said.

Not that much really. It's a 2,5L engine and it's manual, so it has pretty normal fuel consumption.

Well, it might be thirsty compared to many cars, but the 525i is less thirsty than lets say.. The 518i or 520i.

Finally got my car registered and road legal! Thanks to Harrison15! And I also removed the 535i badge. Other than that nothing special has happened to the car.


Oh, and I seem to have forgotten to mention the car has factory 25% LSD!

Recently bought a full facelift front (Hood, grill frame, headlight frames and kidneys) and a plate filler from VStanced Garage for 550V$. The parts were in good shape, but they are in Orientblau Metallic, so I have to get those painted, unless I decide to repaint the whole car. Time will show. I also got rid of the ugly muffler I had, and made straight pipes from the car and back with some pipes I had laying around since me and a buddy did straight pipes on his car. Now the car is loud but sounds great. Found a set of used OEM Hella fog lights on Ebay for 130V$, so now I have all the lights in place.

Tried on 2 wheels that a friend of mine had. 18" Rondell 0058. I think this looks like a decent size for my car. But I think I need to lower the front a bit more if im going to use a wheel setup like this. But as long as I have the Borbets on, I need to keep this height so the tyres doesnt rub.

Long time no see! Bought a set of used Rondell 0058 (900V$) from VStanced Garage. The tires on them are fairly old so I should replace them soon. Had to lower the front a bit because there was quite a big gap between the fender and the wheel. I also bought yellow tinted Lamin-X protective films for the highbeams (18V$) and fog lights (18V$). Got some "eyebrows" from a buddy, since he sent his car to the scrapper. Gotta love rust. And I also bough a Rieger lip from a local BMW shop (162V$). Trying to find a good deal for a full repaint of the car. Otherwise the car still runs great, no problems.

(Could have sworn I commented on this earlier)

Really like the Rondells, they're a very nice touch. Along with everything else you purchased recently. I'm really like the headlights and front lip.

Yeah they look nice on most of the older BMWs.

I love this car and these pictures!

I would like to ask if it is possible for me, to get those rondell 0058 18 inch rims as a 3d model, so it would be possible to convert it into gta v?

I also own bmw e39 and i love those rims!!

Very (very) long time since last update. Kinda because I moved to a new place, so not alot of time to spend on the car.


So as you see, it's still not painted (I'm open for suggestions for new color), but me and a friend got the interior dyed to Saddle brown which is one of my favourite interior colors. I think it came out pretty good!


Since the E34 is more or less a project, I decdided to buy a new daily. It's a 1998 BMW 528i E39 with 260.000km on it. Nothing special, but it's nice enough for me. Completely stock on 16" Style 33 wheels, shadowline trim and sport suspension. The previous owner changed to facelift LED tail lights. Doesn't matter, as I was planning to give it a facelift anyways.

Came across an ad from a guy parting out his crashed (and rusty) Topaz blue 2002 525i M-Sport. It had everything that I needed for my E39. Full M-Sport bodykit (including mirrors, lip spoiler) plus facelift headlights and kidneys. I really do wonder what he hit, since the rear bumper didn't have any damage on it..


Anyway, we made a deal and I took everything with me home. Removed all the old parts and put them up for sale. Now the new parts were installed, and I'm pretty happy. Except for the fact that I now have to get THAT painted as well! I still need a full re-spray for the E34..

Alright.. Got all the old parts sold, and bought a set of cheap TA Technix coilovers for the E39. Went ahead and installed those as soon as I got home. I discovered when I was starting to remove the old suspension, that the "sport suspension" actually was aftermarket lowering springs. But anyway, coilovers in, now time for alignment. Also parts are getting painted very soon, so now it will be one color finally. Might try to get a good deal on full paint for the E34.
