while i usually like the alpina wheels i prefer the M5 ones from this generation as they actually served a purpose to keep the brakes well ventilated.

either way sweet car! i can't get over the condition of the front seats. must've been replaced.
I hate those alpina reps, can't get rid of them. Noone wants them. As for the seats, i doubt they were replaced. They guy i bought it off, put 3K on the car in 4 years.

That;s the best thing about the e34 M5, it felt so raw and power delivery was lacking down low but really built up with the RPM.
The difference between the e34 M5 and the e39 M5 in the way the power band feels and the way both cars feel is so amazing.
I really want to add another e34 M5 back in my garage, the feel of those cars and the feedback was great.

Looking at yours makes me miss my 91 NA Blk on Blk.

Yeah, the drive is amazing, but i would only buy the 3.8L if i has to buy another one, the 3.6 is pretty slow being an M-car. 14+ second car doesn't feel like you're driving an M5.

Wish I had your steering wheel. I believe some of the later US m5s came with 3.73s. Mine aswell has 3.91s
