"Having created a very good looking bodyshell, engineered for safety and durability, BMW's computerised build techniques had also resulted in exemplary panel fit and paint finish, which were second to none'" – Lawrence Meredith, BMW 1975-2001. First introduced in 1972, BMW's 5-Series had established itself as market leader among medium size luxury sports saloons by the time the third generation arrived in 1988. 'E34' in factory parlance, the newcomer was larger yet aerodynamically more efficient than its predecessor thanks to a more streamlined and curvaceous bodyshell designed with enhanced safety as a priority. BMW's customers had long been accustomed to matchless build quality and the E34's was as good as the best.
Being a relatively early 530i, the car offered here has the long-established M30B30 inline six-cylinder engine producing 185bhp, which was smoother, more reliable and less costly to service than the later version's V8. Equipped with the desirable factory five-speed manual gearbox, the car has recently been re-commissioned following more than six years in dry storage. Importantly, the interior is in very good condition with no dashboard cracks or creaks. Finished in blue with grey upholstery, the car comes with a V5C document and good service history.
