    euro e34 M

    Hi. I'm visiting from the e24 board...I have always loved e34 ///M's and am in the market for an upgrade from my 633. I noticed a '94, euro-spec e34M on ebay and I want it really bad. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1,1&item=4594027431&sspa gename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT

    So tell me: what goes wrong with e34 M's? Does this one look like a deal?

    TIA

    Mike

    Re: euro e34 M

    One of the things that would worry me the most is that it still has a German title. This may mean that the car has not be Federalized yet, a very expensive proposition.

    The S38B38 is a very reliable engine, but when something goes awry, it is very expensive. Other than the engine and the transmission, most of the other parts are common to US E34s, so it has the reliability and faults of E34s. The upside is that 1994 was the next to the last year of production, so many bugs of the earlier years were worked out.

    Hope this helps.

    Agree about the German title, potential big

    problems getting it registered in the US. Wonder how the person got it into the US without getting it certified by DOT and EPA. Maybe it was a German military or diplomatic person's car. Here's a link to what might go wrong with E34 type cars. 93 525ia

    However, it has a US speedometer. So the German

    title seems strange.93 525ia
