1992 BMW 525iT
Here are some photos of our '92 BMW 525iT (T=Touring, which is German for Station Wagon :-). This car has a 2.5L DOHC inline 6 producing 189hp and 181lb/ft torque and is rear-wheel drive. Plenty of power to get around the block, and fits plenty of stuff, all the while driving like a very nice sports sedan. With a roof rack and a storage box, it's orders of magnitude better for road trips than our ex-minivan could ever hope to be. I've dubbed it the "Bimmer half-ton."
We've put ~10K miles on the wagon now (from 109k to 119k), and have had the following problems:
Not great, but not bad considering the mileage and the lack of maintenance records when we bought the car.
Features which are cool and interesting until they break (tongue-in-cheek comments in parens):
The car now has a Jim C. chip. Look here for my bimmer.org post on the effects of said chip. I've also updated the sound system, which I will detail one day (say, when the kids are in school?). Note the non-stock wheels... these are 17x8.5" Mille Miglia MM11-2 rims with 235x45x17" Bridgestone Potenza RE71 tires, which provide lots of grip and an aggressive look. I wrote about this upgrade on bimmer.org too...
Finally, a plug for an excellent website for e34 owners, compiled and maintained by Bruno, Canadian contributor to bimmer.org... lots of great information, especially if you like to work on your own car. Finally, the pictures (click for full-size).
