I've seen people reference the E34 540i throttle cable which I believe is 35411161934. It's available from BMW but it's not cheap at all!

Are there any others people have used successfully which are available in the aftermarket?

I retained the throttle cable I used on my supercharged m52 set up.
It's e34 525 cable for m50 engine. It works fine. Right length ect :cool:

Thanks for that V8turd. I have the original E38 M60 cable so will try that and if it doesnt work then I'll try and source an M50 cable.
