Even in its day, it was the number 1 sports sedan when it came to driving dynamics in connection with comfort and prestige. Back then, at the time of the “Sharknose” BMWs, who have never heard of the giant kidney grille of today's models, dad was more than happy with the E34 BMW.

Back then, the sporty dynamic driver drove a BMW, while the dignified, conservative gentleman driver picked up a Mercedes. And that's still a little bit like that. Because there are still fundamental differences between a five-car BMW and a Mercedes E-Class. But both are now much closer together. Nowadays, the customers of both are almost identical.

But we wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. But let's go closer to the classic one Five-BMW one, the one from Anton from Moscow, who is also online at @fsd_tony (Link see end of post) has been modified.

Furthermore, were on the front axle Four piston brake calipers Installed by ATE to bring the load to a safe stop even at high speeds. On the other hand, they seem a bit strange Pane grille by the company Trixie which were probably not originally developed to be used in vehicle tuning, but as Restraint system for dogs. Nevertheless, the tuning is successful from our point of view and you can be seen with the vehicle at every brand-open tuning meeting.

Interior was only slightly changed!

In the dynamic and driver-oriented interior, everything stayed in its usual place. Just a wooden one Steering wheel from Victor, which has a diameter of 360 mm, a wooden one shift knob as well as a Blaupunkt Bavaria S radio system were installed in the five.
