I still miss #18
The 1995 BMW Motorsport Limited Edition 540i.
There were only 70 of these made for Australia and they were each fitted with an individually numbered plaque (under the handbrake lever). They are similar in concept and execution to the 200 US M-Sport 540i’s and the 32 Canadian M540i’s produced in 1995.
The LE’s were the closest thing to an E34 M5 available in Australia after 1993 and came with almost all the 1995 M5 good bits (like full M5 suspension including switchable EDCIII struts, full M5 sports interior, etc), except for the motor and the body kit. But despite missing the 1995 M5’s 250 KW 3.8L six, the LE’s smooth 210KW V8 did provide some compensation – particularly given that all LE’s came fitted with the 1995 M5’s 6-speed manual gearbox.
