Restoration: e34 M5 (metallic dolphin)
Ok, so the car was bought outside Polokwane (Pietersburg) is number 037 of the e34's made in South Africa, in April 1991.
The car is scheduled to arrive by Auto Carrier hopefully Friday, will then post some pics, in addition to progress being made in restoring it.

does this mean you must use different keys for opening and starting car?

that bottle is really priceless, it lifts the whole engine bay up so many levels! I would kill for an E30 one thats super white and clean
