Post 1991 E34 M5
Hello everyone it's been a while since I was on this forum, more precisely since I sold my Z3M. However, I got the new toy, 1991 E34 M5, California car with 0 rust on the body and 144K miles. Car is in really good shape and decided to bring it to the previous glory. Right now is in the shop getting few things done and waiting for CA Tuned coilovers. I am wondering does anyone has dove gray leather seats, since my front seats are not in the greatest shape? Is there anyone out there reasonable priced for seat refurbishing or total re upholstery? Also I might be interested in door trim panels? Please let me know if you have anything of above mentioned. Thank you in advance.

Need pics of the M5!

Your best bet might be to buy a 525/535/540 with nice sport interior, swap it with your M5 and re-sell the donor E34...

Interior is not that bad I already talked to one guy who is doing car upholstery and he might be able to help me out. Here are some pictures.

Lovely car!
I daily drove an e34 m5 for quite some time. Absolutely brilliant car to drive.

I like your wheels, very 90s touring car.

Thank you. I like it very much too, that's reason I am willing to do lot's of things to this baby. New control arms, sway bars, tire rods, coilovers. I think will be real fun when everything is complete. In older BMW's you have connectivity to the road, real driver cars, not like those today. Used to have E34 540 6 speed and for years was banging my head why I ever sold it.

Not sure if you have already sourced your control arms etc. but I have a couple spare bits from my e34 laying around.

Car looks beautiful! I was going to suggest leatherique if you're up for a big diy project. I had a friend use this process on an older Toyota and it worked really well. I'll see if I can get his pics but they have a 7 series on the website.
