The "E34" BMW M5 was a special, iconic 1990s sedan -- and an excellent high-performance vehicle. Today I'm reviewing this E34 M5 to show you around a lesser-known, early BMW M car. I'll also show you the quirks and features of this M5, and I'm also driving this E34 M5 on the road.

  • The idea behind that unusual positioning of the rear passenger seat belt buckles was to make it easier for first responders to cut you out in case of an accident. That's attention to detail my friends. And it's still like this in modern BMWs. The front hinged hood was also a safety feature - it won't open accidentially, e.g. at 120 mph on the Autobahn. Not very mechanics-friendly though, so they abandonded this.

  • The E34 M5 is perfection.... in the European late 3.8 flavour with big brakes and 340 bhp......also a few things you missed. There should be a first aid kit under the front passenger seat, you reach under from the front. Also its missing the warning triangle from the tool kit ( the cloth is in the slot), the front bumper was unique to the M5, well the very bottom of it was, the rest of the body kit ( side sills, rear bumper and boot spoiler) were also available on sport models. The sport front bumper was VERY slightly different. The m5 also had a unique black panel between the lights on the boot. The rear belts make a lot of sense, they don't get trapped in the door if they haven't retracted and you don't get tangled if you have to get out after an accident. The E34 had variable pressure wipers ( you hear the motor when you turn on the ignition) to keep them placed at speed on the autobahn. Also your quality score should be 8 or 9. The E34 is the BEST built bmw ever.

  • The next gen is the BEST sports sedan, in history, but there's just something about the look, and feel of these, that just always made me enjoy them more. These had performance, but retained the heavy, solid, quality build feel, that the next generation failed to capture. With little to no wood on the interior, lots of plastic, and just a generally lighter, less durable feel, the following M5 could outperform this one, but didn't have the same feel of quality craftsmanship that this one had. By comparison, this generation felt hand built, while ghe following M5 felt like it was built on an assembly line...

  • Ah yes, the cheaper 5 seat version. I'm surprised Doug didn't find one with that massive console between the backseats. I bought that kind of interior from M5 to fit inside my regular E34, such a luxury.

  • 8 of the 24 BMW’s ive owned over my 40 years were e34’s. 6cyl’s, 8cyl’s, autos, sticks, didnt matter...they’re incredible cars! My absolute favorite to this day! Ive even had one with 310,000 miles!!!..she ran, drove and looked like it had 100k on it! These were “REAL” BMW’s, nothing like the tiny turbo pussy cars they churn out by the thousands nowadays for high school girls and “Karen’s.” Sad, ...really sad. Ahh..watching this video I can still smell it! That e34/e32/e31 era had a such a specific and distinct smell to it...then the e38/e39 era had its own distinct smell too. Most of the e34/e32 cars leather were made from Bison 🦬 hides. I wanna buy one again now!

  • the previous body started in 1974 having a 520(74)same engine as the 2002 wich i had 5 diferent ones,body and engine wise around 250€ each ,one i even trade it for a 6 monthes pioneer cassette(300€) deck both in mint condition and a 535i (this being from 81 or 82),this particular model i had a white and a black full extras 2.0i engine to choose from for 2000€, i ended buying none of them both were from old friends of the family and in mint condition. The one in the video was a heavy drinker the 2.0i is more apreciated

  • Almost right about the bigger engine. We only got the S38B38 3.8 liter in 1993. In 1991 and '92 we got the S38B34 (3465 cc). The "Throwing Star" wheels on this car are also from '92 or '93, not available in '91. Thank you for not calling the engine an M88 or saying it was the same engine used in the M1.
