1994 BMW 530i 5-speed manual

The BMW E34 5 series is classic BMW. I think few models, barring the E30, embody everything this brand is about more so than this particular range. From the 525i Touring to the M5, there was a broad array of models that were on offer here in the US market to suit varying tastes. One interesting variant was the 530i, especially when equipped with the 5-speed manual gearbox. Nowadays we think of 3.0 designated the use of a six cylinder engine, but in the case of this E34, a small, 3.0 liter V8 was under the hood. This was the dawn of the modern V8 era for BMW and rarely could you find a V8 of such small capacity in a motorcar. Often looked over for it’s bigger brother, the 540i, this lesser variant is worth a second glance, especially when you come across a nice one like this which is for sale in New Jersey.

One of the best cars I have had the pleasure of owning. Truly a STOCK, UNMOLESTED example of a near perfect E34 5-Speed V8. I will give a very detailed and honest description so read on!

Before I go further, I would like to share a bit of my opinion about serviced and maintained high mileage cars. If you are looking at this ad, then you are in the market for a E34. When weighing your options about a low mileage higher priced car and one such as mine that has higher, cared for mileage, please consider this. This car has had EVERY required service, almost everything has been replaced/serviced and is all DOCUMENTED. Lower mileage cars have alot of expensive maintenance creeping up, alot of things that will soon go wrong that have not been repaired. Why not buy a car that has been literally revamped?

There are no mechanical issues with this car. I have service records for the last 14 years of ownership! Every oilchange has been documented, always Mobil One Syntetic Oil, always Premium 93 Octane fuel. Recent service includes new suspension, billsteins, control arms and trailing arms. Valve cover gasket, timing chain service, new hoses belts and fluid flushes. I cannot even begin to touch the surface of the kind of extensive service this car received. The previous owner was a BMW shop owner and no expense was spared in maintaining this sedan. The best tires for the car are on it, Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S and they have 80% threadwear left.

All electricals work, new window motors, regulators and clips. New seat motors and cables. Ice cold Dual AC system! Factory speakers replaced and the stock stereo sounds great! Heated seats on both sides work flawlessly. No missing pixels on the dash, no warning lights, no issues.

As you can see from the pics, the interior is like new, no ripped or torn Seats, armrests are near perfect, carpets are like new, no soggy headliner, everything is intact! I have not seen a nicer interior on this era E34 in a very long time. This car has had no accidents as you can see from the free Autocheck and is above average in their scoring system.

Mechanically 100%. I would not hesitate to drive this car cross country. You get a constant 23mpg on the highway, engine is sound and powerful, the manual transmission shifts smoothly. No funny noises oil leaks or suprises. Just a really well maintained Ultimate Driving Machine! Always passes NJ MV State Inspections.

Please feel free to contact me @ 201 233 4938 if you have any further questions or would like to schedule a test drive. If the winner of this auction would like to fly in to NJ and drive the car home, the nearest airport is Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). If you wish to have the car shipped I will work with your shippers to ensure a smooth pick-up and delivery.

All manuals, books, documents, service records, ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER, 3 Sets of Factory BMW keys including the valet key are all included in the sale. I do not believe an E34 with this much service history, maintenance and care has ever been offered here on Ebay or anywhere else. A recent financial setback is forcing this sale or I would keep this BMW forever, it needs nothing but a new home! Please note that the mileage will increase as I will continue to drive my BMW until it sells.

Thank you for looking at my car, good luck with your offers and I can always be reached @ 201 233 4938 for questions.

In Alpinweiss over black, this is classic BMW all the way. A lot of maintenance has been attended to on this 530i, so it should put the mind at ease just a bit. This car certainly doesn’t appear to have over 150,000 on the clock. With the 5-speed manual, someone is sure to have a lot of fun with this motor for not a lot of change.
