Hey guys, so as some of you meaby knows, i've recently bought a M535i from 1986 without an engine. I've got the plan to put in a M60 v8 in there. Last 2 weeks i was done combining the grain, and i had some nice time off and i haven't been sitting stil since than. Pictures of the rust repairs it self are on my other computer soo you will get them later on.
Last week i've bought an BMW E-32 740IL Executive on Ebay.co.uk. Last sunday me and my brother went there to pick it up. I've payed 436GBP for it (815 US Dollars) soo it was damn cheap!!!
All the leather interieur stuff is in one piece without a scratch! and all the electrical stuff works! soo is really a good buy. The engine is a M60 with nicaseal i guess but it runs verry smooth and because the car only has 74000miles on the clocks and our fuel is much better than the fuel you guys us in the USA i don't think the nicaseal issue would be an problem.
Here are some photos of my 5 series when it arrived and some of the 7 series (i haven't driven a car before that was so luxe!)
Yep the engine is going into the 5-er
about the 7 serie:
I don't know yet, I don't want to bring it to the screapheap because it's in soo good condition. I would rather sell it in parts soo i know people have atleast some fun out of it. Otherwise i'm selling it in one pieces without the stuff i need to use. But because it's a righthand driven car and in holland we use left hand driven ones i think it's more difficult to sell it.
Hey people, haven't been on this topic for quite some time. Been verry busy with harvesting the corn and stuff soo i didn't do anything else than work and sleep..
Every spare time i had i put in my beemer soo there has been some progress in my project.
Well things i've done are:
- welding some pieces in the back (underneath the taillights)
- Buying some SUPERB looking 18inch Alpina's with on the rear some pretty huges looking 265/40R18 Never had soo wide tires in my hands! And they just fit (for photo's see under)
- Welded a new wheel arches in (righthand side)
- bought some parts
- Sandblasted my thrunk and putted in the Epoxy primer
Things i've done yesterday where sandblasting my new righthand side front fender and my lefthandside wheel arche piece and putted those in the epoxy.
Well time to put some pictures to the talk!
first my Alpina's
Keep us updated!!!! nice project! you planning boost for later?

Hey thanks for the compliments. I will try to keep you guys updated.
Well i'm gonna stick with the natural aspirated V8 first, because it's gonna be my dailydriver car soo the petrolmoney needs to stay a little bit in limits.
But in 3 years it's gonna be taxfree soo meaby i would like to supercharge it than. But we will see than!
Hello guys, My plan was to get the engine out of the 740 this cristmas, soo i started today with dismanteling the car.. I must say the're damn good build cars and its a lot of work to get the engine out of there! I'm at the stage to get the engine out of there but because we ran out of time i'm planing on doing that this weekend. (Don't want to rush it to much!)
This morning i started with dismounting the exhaust untill the cats, ofcourse i couldn't keep my self in to not start the car and it sounds super sweet!!
Well here are some pictures of the work:
