    Jon1465's E39 V8 Monster

    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:
    2002
    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
    High obc
    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

    Knowing how much time & effort you put into your motors this is gonna be a minter

    What about folding wing mirrors Jon, have you missed that off the list?
