: How would you guys rate the amount of backseat room in the E34? I know 300e are basically the same dimensions lengthwise, but they seem to have more backseat leg room. Does the E34 have ample leg room and shoulder room for 2 people in the backseat?
I don't know if the backseat is any bigger in the wagon, but I don't think so. I have a '92 525iT, and I've been told by rear passengers there was plenty of room. I'm not incredibly tall, about 5'8" or so, but I do keep my seat pretty far back. My previous car was a '65 chevy impala, and I had the seat back as far as it would go. (Considering the scale of the car, thats pretty far.) Anyway, someone else in this thread suggested the 740il, and they are right, that has much more room, but the legroom in the back of the E34 is not bad at all. Especially for kids, but even adults. The seat itself is pretty comfortable too. Not like the front, but for a backseat, its nice. Just my $1.50. :)
