• Got one headlight polished I see…..
    Seems like an OK buy if this is what you are looking for however save a few more pennies and get an M5 with out needing the hairdryer.

  • Like or hate Tavarish, he has a lot of experience with BMW engines and said this "For example, the E39 540i had timing chain guides made of melted jellybeans that would literally start disintegrating as soon as you even thought about the concept of an expired warranty, leaving a potentially huge chunky mess at the bottom of your oil pan, but that wouldn’t matter, as your oil pump mounting bolts would work themselves out way before that ever occurred. The engine would reduce itself from a taut, muscular bellow to a feeble, rattly, barely-running mess in about 120,000 miles, and that’s unacceptable for a $5000 Craigslist beater, much less a near-$60,000-when-new luxury performance sedan."
    So while you could get away with putting a turbo on a medium to high mileage Chevy LS1 motor, this 540i engine seems like a grenade with its pin pulled.
