1991 BMW 525i (E34)

The Story

This journey has began a few years ago when, on the verge of another workday, I parked next to a beautiful and entirely original E34. It was early in the morning, still dark, with poor light conditions and only my phone camera at hand. Nonetheless, I managed to capture that moment!

“And it was at that moment he knew (he f****d up!) he wanted an E34.”

Since the timing wasn’t right — I was working on my E39 and still had a long way ahead — I had to postpone my desires for a while. A couple years passed, but then, one day on my way home, with the weather being nice, I decided to take a small detour to check if there were any airplanes on the ground worth photographing. To my surprise, on a parking lot, facing the road, I found this car with a “For Sale” note on the windshield. The price wasn’t listed, but I decided to take a chance anyway.

The owner was nearby, quickly arrived at the scene and a great deal was struck. Sooner than expected, I was driving my own BMW 525i E34!
