Ditto. The E34 was one of the last cars to come out of Germany with real high quality interior parts everywhere. The newer BMWs are quite nice, but they're soft-touch plastic all over. Cars like the E34 and older S-Class Mercs have 'built for eternity' interiors.

The rest of the car holds up pretty well, too.


I really hate to say this but the E39 reminded me of the Buick Regal I rented in Hawaii during millenium celebration. I like the fit and interior of the E34 better. The E39 has a dash that looks like GM cars. It didn't feel BMW to me.
