Well here's the new motor after looking for one for a few months this one finally arrived
It has been garaged for over 2 years so had a proper run in for 4 hours yesterday on the way home
Here's the specs:
M62 4.4 V8
6 speed manual (these are very rare in an e39 not many were sold)
Usual m sport spec
High gloss shadow line trim
Clocked over 65k on the way home yesterday
That's about it really it seems a very low spec'd car that can soon be changed
The job list
Trip to the body shop as it is bad in places
Full service plugs,filters,fluids
Replace engine bay bolts as there rusty and annoying me
New discs and
Retrofit electric rear window blind
Retrofit rear side blinds
Retrofit electric, heated, lumbar M5 interior
Fit all LED lighting
Fit HID kit
Polish head light lenses
Fit all audio parts
Change wooden interior trim
Fit electric steering column
Retrofit folding mirrors (need re painting first)
That's all for now there's lots to keep me busy!
Here's a few pictures of it
I love the gloss shadow line trim much nicer than the Matt black
Even the interior window trim is high gloss
The interior is filthy!
Was suprised how big the standard tail pipe is needs a good polish up
Here is the new power plant also very filthy can't wait to get it gleaming!
These need to be changed!
Thanks for looking
