Nice buy there Estoril - E34's probably the best beemers ever made. Cheap as chips now as well

Check the front suspension bushes, esp. the lower arms as these are notorious for wearing giving you the dreaded 50mph shimmy, and the heater blower controls can give up the ghost

This thread was pretty much made for me since I've never owned anything newer than a 1991 model!

91' GTI with 180k on the clock and original paint:



1990 Golf G60 edition One with 109,000km on it:



then onto an '89 GTI with 175,000 on her:




And the current one: 91 GTI with only 108k!
