Feeler : E34 Dinan 5 Part Out (SC, Exhaust, Chips, etc)

Well, been too busy to post up but had a fender bender with a gaurd rail one icy morning.


Im sure they will total it.

E34 Dinan 5 540i kit. Suoercharger with receipts newly rebuilt, Dinan exhaust (cat back Id guess), Dinan shocks and springs, Racing Dynamics rear wing, rebuikt factory raido (w receipt of 350 bucks), rebuilt auto trans with Dinan tuning (recpt too), mint other than me fucking it up.


Anyone have any ideas? I was ready to hit the junkyard this AM, grab a new fender and bumpers... but... pulling into the body shop and the rad started dripping from below.

Ya, I do not think it could come at a worse time but I have been wrong before.

Frame damage is the assessment. So, definitely totaled. No swap on some new bumpers and a fender and call it a day. It is toast.

I will be waiting for a call from my insurance, see what my options are.

Looks like today I need to get the E30 dialed in as a DD until I get a new plan.

Woukd be great to keep the exhaust, DME and supercharger bits.. save for a rainy day. Sell the rest whole to cover my losses.

Depending on what you're looking for out of it, there may be someone interested in buying it and swapping the parts to a good shell. At least, wouldn't hurt to throw up some pics.

You may also try the classifieds over at bf.c; they tend to have more of an active E34 group.

Sucks man; sorry to hear about the wreck. Hopefully it will all work out.

I feel like that can 100% be fixed. Doesn't look bad at all. Frame can't be bent very bad if it is. Nothing a frame table couldn't fix.

Lots of big parts gone.



Still plenty of car left.

Please LMK what you need. V8 swap guys? Brakes? Electronics? Floor mats? Hardware?

The suspension remains.

It is a Racing Dynamics kit as you would expect with the Dinan. Mine has the front RD sway. The rear sway has remained stock.

TSW Mirablau wheels (19" rear, 18" front) with great tires

540i brakes with fresh rotors and pads (the rotor hats are still silver)

Interior (dove grey, leather, gathered door cards.. not a single hole, tear, slice, etc. the interior is exceptional).

Diff (still need to ID it)

Rebuilt auto trans with dinan tuning (receipt for rebuild, under 3k on the rebuild)
