Fast Facts:
  • In the U.S, the E34 5 series was much better looking than E28 it replaced due to a change in one particular U.S safety regulation: bumpers now have to withstand only a 2.5 MPH collision rather than a 5 MPH collision. This meant the E34 was free from the massive (and ugly) 5 MPH bumpers found on the E28
  • The all-aluminum M60 V8 uses a forged crankshaft with five main bearings, and is BMW’s first production engine to use connecting rods made of “sintered metal”. The rods are forged as a single piece and then fractured at the cap. The ragged edges of the fracture help align the cap on the rod to a precise degree that cannot be matched by the conventional 2-piece method, eliminating the need for alignment sleeves. This is also the first BMW engine to use a MAF sensor
  • E34 models are distinguishable by their grilles (just like the 7 series). V8 models are equipped with wide kidney grilles, while the lesser cars feature narrower kidney grilles
  • No U.S model E34 5 series came with headlight washers, foglight washers, or rear foglights
  • The E34 was the first 5 series to receive stability control (ASC) and traction control (ASC+T). However, both were excluded from the M5. Incorporating traction control with the M5’s individual throttle bodies was beyond the capability of the Bosch Motronic engine management system, and ASC wasn’t yet designed to work with the M5’s 25% locking LSD
  • This is the only year of the optional M-Sport in the U.S (E34 generation) which was essentially an M5 chassis with the V8 from the regular 540i. Just 205 M-Sport examples were imported to the US, making these cars rarer than the M5. An M-sport can be distinguished from a regular 540i by the M5 body kit and special wheels
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the 6spd manual
  • Updated 4 spoke steering wheel that now includes a full color BMW roundel (vs an imprint of the BMW logo)
  • The lower body trim is now body-color on all models (previously black)
  • Door panels are updated to a more luxurious diagonal leather pattern
  • The regular 540i replaced the 535i in 1993
  • 1994-1995 models have a slightly more pronounced texture on the leather seats compared to older models
