In Reply to: Why should i buy and e34 and not an e39? posted by show some pics that put 39s to shame on December 11, 2000 at 17:17:56:

I have a 97 528i and 91 525i both 5spds.
The E34 is my daily driver and the E39 more of a weekend car. I'm very happy with both cars, they are both stock and very well maintained. The E34 gives me the feeling of it being a better built car it's now 10 years old has close to 100k and shows very little wear. The E39 on the other hand does not seem to be as solidly built and I'm not sure how it would hold up after 10 years but, it's quicker, smoother, more comfortable and handles much better than the e34 even with the crappy Contis. Drive several of each and see what works for you.
Good luck!
