I have a 1990 Dinan 5 for sale, it has 60K miles(36K on the conversion)
and is in PERFECT condition inside and out. There is a total of around
$75K in this car(including the original purchase price)....I tossed $12K+ of
the goodies on in the last couple of months(new wheels, tires, stress bar,
lighting, bodie goodies and an Airbag sport steering wheel), this excludes a $3800 audiophile stereo that is 1 month old(Sony CDXC-910/Quart/Infinity/Audio Control/HiFonics). Following
is a list of all the stuff done to the car. I will further that this was
all done right with NO hacks or corners cut anywhere. This may be a lot
more car than you are looking for but here it is anyway. The reason
for selling is a change in my insurance situation that will let me by
the Lotus Esprit S4 that I wanted in the first place...damn them! :)

Looking for serious offers, Dinan has suggested that the car is worth between $26,500-32,500 and is currently located in Colorado. The specs follow:0

Sterling Silver with the silver leather interior and has the M5 "Throwing Star" wheels in 17X8 front and 17X9 rear shod with
Yokamhama AVS 235/45 and 255/40 17s. The rest of the car is standard
issue Dinan 5(The BIG 4 piston 13" brakes, Stage II 3.722L stroker motor, regeared
differential(LS) and stock ratio LS diff, Stage III suspension, exhaust, airbox, bushings,
intake, etc.), personal
touches are a Momo Super Anotomic shift knob, sport Airbag steering wheel,
clear euro indicators all the way around, Euro Hella "black" projector
headlight assemblies, M-technik front spoiler with air scopes for the
brakes(no lame poor excuse for a brake duct factory M5 spoiler on this
car!), AC S Kevlar wing(feather light and some serious downforce at
speed), AC S side mirrors and single arm windshield wiper
conversio(reduced wind noise and great looking too), the wheels of
course and a modified(the engine proportions are differ from stock
slightly) Racing Dynamics(yes the real one fron Italy) strut tie bar.
Oh, can't forget the RD pedal cluster(much easier to heel and toe with)
and M-Technic foot rest that I smuggled over from the Fatherland.

The engine is at 290+hp and 310+ft lb of torque....a lot more torque than
the M5 and all the horse power of the 540i Sport.

There is no nicer E34s that I'm aware of, just different ones.

Best Regards,

Carl Jerritts
