E12, E28, E34, E39, E60General discussion and technical help for all year 5 series cars.
Picked up an E34 Touring about a week ago or so. I'm really happy with the car, and already got the mod bug working overtime right now. I just gotta get my daughters car finished first.
Here's what it looks like right now:
And here's something along the lines of what I want to head towards:

Congrats on the fiver. I agree with Gold Panda, I like the dinan mods for engine. But for suspension and wheels, there are a ton of great companies. Is your touring a 525it or a 540i? Is is an automatic or manual? You can make your touring a sleeper for sure.
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
Well, I'm not gonna quote everyone, but I'll try to answer all of them.
Dudesky, yeah, the rims are big, but it's just a p-chop. I'm leaning towards ACS Type IIs in 19". We'll see when I get to the point of purchase, but I love the classic look of them.
Dinan540 & Gold Panda: Thanks for the Dinan tip. I haven't seen much for performance mods for the E34. Suspension isn't a problem, but stuff like CAIs seem non-existent. I've heard the ECIS/AA CAI for E36s will fit with a little modding, though.
The car is a 525iT, with auto. I might do a manual conversion in the future, if it needs it (which it will, eventually).
c1apton: Tint is one of the first mods on my list.
Everyone: Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate it.
Here's the mods I'm thinking of doing:
GC coilover kit w/Konis
Blackout grill, and shadowline trim
Euro bumper trim
exhaust and CAI
19" ACS Type IIs
Colormatch lower sections
Either a different front bumper, or possibly a lip. I'd like to find an ACS front bumper, but they're like Unicorns nowadays.
