    1994 530iT Manual - Rust Free

    SOLD

    R3V-

    To absolutely no surprise to anyone who has seen more than 3 posts in a build thread of mine, I'm selling the 530iT that I just picked up. I don't have the time for a fifth car. Good thing is, it really doesn't need much to be a hawt cruiser.

    This car is a really good foundation for someone looking to get into a 530iT that's already manual swapped and has had a bunch of common E34 problems addressed. The car has 226K on it and has had a slew of recent maintenance. It doesn't need much to get it where I wanted. I have a huge stack of maintenance records for the car as well.

    The car needs a rear bumper, a PDR guy, and interior love. Interior is typical for E34s, sagging door panels, sunroof headliner not there, etc.

    Price: $3K*
    Location: 46013

    *This price includes a set of Italian Style 37 reps (need tires)

    Pros:
    * Paint shines up nice
    * Rust free!!
    * New V-rated tires with less than 10,000 miles on them on the factory wheels
    * New clutch put in about 20,000 miles ago
    * Rebuilt shifter linkage and short throw shifter
    * Clutch pedal rebuilt, plus new master cylinder, slave cylinder done about 3,000 miles ago
    * Throttle pedal rebuilt
    * New Front strut inserts done about 20,000 miles ago
    * New refurbished A/C compressor, blower motor resistor, and blower motor
    * Front brakes and rotors replaced under 10,000 miles ago
    * new valve cover gaskets
    * new water pump, thermostat, upper radiator hose, secondary water pump
    * New plugs, coil and a bunch of other "tune up" related items

    Cosmetic Cons:
    * Dent in passenger quarter. Should be easy for a PDR guy to pop out
    * Rear bumper is shot. Found another for $100, should be a straightforward swap.
    * Small crack in front plastic bumper trim.
    * Weird paint chip on hood and upwards dent towards front of hood

    Mechanical Cons:
    * It's leaky. No huge leaks, just more of the typical E34 seeping.
    * Sunroof inop
    * Other small stuff I'm sure, it's an E34
    * Rear seat belt buckle shell not there
    * Interior has various stains and typical E34 door card peeling

        Yeah, me too. The Midwest older BMW market is pretty soft right now so I canít say Iím surprised. But I hope it goes to a good home, itís really not far from being a great car, all the bones are there.

            She's sold to Corey! I don't want to give away too much of his master plan, but lets just say there may be another gristle hammer floating around these parts.

              Did this car ever live in NC? I swapped an identical 530iT and even installed clear front blinkers on it

                WOW that’s so funny! This came from NC, and had your shift linkage in it :D Totally your old car!

                When I got the car all of the bolts had fallen out of the carrier and the shifter assembly was hanging in place. The guy who owned it after you didn’t take care of it. It was clear the car has a great foundation and now runs/drives great.

                Edit: I did some more digging and realized that Ross, the gent you purchased the trans from also supplied me the shift carrier some 10 years later.

                  WOOOOOW! I sold it to a realtor who got the car painted. He then sold it to someone else who "ran it in the ground"

                  Fun Fact, I got those clear front signals from YAN while visiting him in germany!

                    Wow- that is incredible! What a story this car has. Seems like all of us have taken care of it minus the ground runner. I always like to keep tabs on old cars that have passed through my hands.

                    I'm excited to see the life Corey ends up giving it.

                    I just put tires on the Mparallels for him and got some front springs from E30335Ian.

                    Time to pass the torch.

                      Man this thing has some history!

                      They'll pry this wagon from my cold, dead hands. I want to put a lot of work into the thing to make the ultimate touring out of it!
