My M535i V8 project

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!)





the 7 serie





And where we do all the work for!



greetings,
Meindert Bunt

Congratulations. Are you planning on swapping the engine from the 7 into the 5? What will you then do with the 7?

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.

greetings,
Meindert Bunt

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!

Goodbye for now

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:



Le Pic Electric!




groeten,
Meindert Bunt
