Need a little more poke than what the Audi 100 Avant we featured earlier offers? How about this low mileage E34 Touring? This was the first five-door actively marketed by BMW in the US, arriving on the scene a few years after the E30 Touring, of which a few examples are beginning to find their way here stateside. Towards the end of the production run, BMW slotted the M60 3.0 liter V8 in this model, creating the 530i (not to be confused with the earlier 530i, powered by the M30B30 3.0 liter inline-6). The Touring model was available with this engine, creating an eight cylinder estate car in a very different mold than the usual Detroit offering. This 1994 Touring for sale in California has an extremely low 35,000 miles on the clock and comes with a full service history.

Selling a rare 1994 BMW 530i Wagon with 35k original miles in great condition. These E34 wagons are very limited edition and its almost impossible to find one like this with this condition and low miles. There are no leaks or smoke, everything works as it should and drives like a dream, paint is in great condition with no major dents or scratches. I believe all the paint still original, it has all the VIN number sticker on each panel. Clean Carfax and Autocheck, inside is almost perfect as you can see in the pictures. These 530s had block problem due to cooling system that was failing and caused the engine to over heat and lose compression. I have called BMW Dealer to ask if the block was replaced or not and they said this car had been upgraded on the cooling system right after it was born and that is why there wont be any issue on the engine like the other ones to change the block.

Dual sunroof works great and I just paid $500.00 for the repair, brand new tires all around on staggered M wheels. Ice cold AC, heated seats, European front lenses and I do have the original one. I do have the original wheels as well with tires. All the service history from BMW dealer plus original window sticker that comes with the car. Please look at all the pictures and ask any kind of questions before you make an offer. Please come and inspect the car yourself or hire 3rd party to do the inspection for you. I am selling the car as is where is. Front brakes are 80% and the rear is 50% ,car drives very nice. I demand a non-refundable deposit of $500.00 right after the auction ends via paypal and the rest in 4 working days via bank wire or cash in person. I can assist you on transportation if you need to. Please ask questions before any offer. Remember this is a 20 years old car and not brand new, this car just go up in value each year, thank you all.

While they didn’t come as standard, the Style 37 M-Parallel alloy wheels look right at home on the E34 and have become a widely accepted modification. At almost $14,000, this is a lot of cash for an E34 Touring, especially when that will get you into a decent M5 of the era. However, it’s rare you see one with such low mileage in this condition. If it’s space and pace you desire, there are few better choices than this Bimmer.

  1. I’ve got a 92 525i Touring black with black interior on M Pars… looks nice, but this one is much nicer! Pretty pricy for the 530i… if a 540i, might be an able to reach that…

  2. I test drove one of these back in 1995 and I can tell you one thing it did not have was a great deal of pace. The 3.0 V8 wasn’t fast, economical or particularly powerful and a lot of owners were put off of the mechanical complexity of the V8 as it didn’t give much of a performance benefit over the recently multivalved 2.5 I6 of the 525i, with vanos and four valves per cylinder it was a much better option.

    Now if this was a 540i, we’d be talking a different matter, those things were rapid!
