E39 Service ?!

Hello !

Guys There is an E39 1996 528i Engine M52B28 I6, Drove An 200000 Mile....

Is it good and worth it ? What Kind of Service need to be done on it and could it be a monster again ? or an old useless bimmer ?

It's used and the owner was not a care car person.. So the car in BAD condition...

It has the old gear box D 3 2 1 and got damaged valve ... Need to replace it with new Gear Steptronic

Jack Dabsy will become famous soon enough
Leave it alone, if it has valve damaged it could have cam or cam-chain issues...
The money you would pay to get the engine right AND a Steptronic box, would easily buy a better one !!

Eso es todo!
