A very well preserved E34 BMW 525i in green, seen on a parking lot near the 3th Ring in Beijing where it stood parked close to a rare second generation Lexus ES300. The E34 BMW 5-Series was produced from 1988 until 1996 and never officially exported to China, some cars however arrived via the gray market or diplomatic channels. This green 525i was in perfect shape except for the tires that looked rather old.
Paint slightly faded in some places, this Bimmer has been outside a lot! Chrome was still very good, no rust too see, ans all parts looked original. Sporty BMW alloys look brilliant under the E34! The 525i was powered by a 2.5 liter six-in-line engine, output was 195hp and 245nm, top speed was a fast 220km/h. This clean green 525i is the sixth E34 we meet in China, earlier on we saw: 520i in red, 540i in gold, 520i in white , a lowrider and a 540i with a telephone.
