Yesterday I bought my first car: A ‘95 BMW E34 520i Touring.

As you’d expect from an almost 20 year old car with 150,000 miles on the odometer, Das Boot is far from perfect. The brown pest is showing early syndromes and needs to be contained as soon as possible, and there are a few issues that give her a unique character like a wayward rear window wiper for example. But all those things are minor problems. The important thing is that the engine feels healthy and the ride is still tight. She is therefore hopefully far away from becoming a “stationary wagon”. Maybe she will be as robust and reliable as the boat in the famous movie.

I will give you more details about the car in another article - maybe in a few days. Until then, just enjoy the pictures and give her a warm welcome to the community:

Yes, that is not the OEM exhaust. It’s a Supersport muffler the previous owner bolted on. It sounds alright. You can find a sound sample here.
