sounds good. just think about how long you are going to keep the car before you do any of the things that run over 1K.

good luck.

The body, and the interior are IMMACULATE, the engine has high miles, its a 93, so I figure, plenty of life left in it... I just tossed 800 bucks into new front struts, as they were gone. But otherwise, it looks like a beautiful car, and, I hope to keep it for around the same length of time as my 6 series, (two years older than me, only owner)

Well, sounds good...

Just something to think about though - If its not a stick, the m5 engine might not mount up, or itll tear the auto up if it does. You'll also have to change out the diff, because it'll tear that apart as well.

Shit, I figured on a transmission swap to a manual...but now i'm wondering how much the differential will cost me...

To the batcave! or to find a cheaper m5 lying around here!
