    Default the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated, also i own a e34 again

    i am impressed my profile still exists, long long ago in the before time when last i was here i think i had a heavily molested e12 based e24, sold and the m6 built with the bones of a rusted out low mile m635 that replaced it got totaled by some nozzle in a camry on a cell phone, my black e30 totaled and replaced with a white one thats about as modified as a e30 can get and still pass for a normal car (m-coupe suspension, stroked m20, paxton blower.....) annnnnnd this brings us to today when i picked up a pretty nice 95 525it with a weak tranny and the complete axle to axle driveline from a 535 but its a slushbox so i gotta scare up a 5 speed, that'll take a minute or two longer then it use to as i don't run a bmw salvage yard any more

    Welcome back, nice find on the touring. I'm sure there is still crap on my e34 that came from you.....

    Too right, a warm welcome home Winfred, from downunder!

    That touring looks low at the back- is it a sad LAD still? I imagine with a 535 rear end (3.65 or 3.91?) it could have had all that addressed but if at that height it may have stock sedan shocks, or something who knows what. I was close to putting an M60 in mine alogn with M60 Sport front swaybar with some adjustable links on a stiffer rear one too, though finding one would be a challenge.

    Love the touring. Nothing better than a 95 with an M30/5 other than perhaps an S38, or my fave combo would be an M54 with a 5 or 6 speed, sport seats and an LSD. Have you got any LSD in yours?
