    Finding An M5

    have to agree - I wanted an e34 m5 and after test driving three 3.6 variants I ended up buying a e34 535i se instead. The M30 is a great engine with great low down torque and a well sorted one will keep up to an m5 up to 100mph. You really have to screw the m5 after 80/90mph to go fast Never drove a 3.8 so cant comment on that

    Finding An M5

    Supposedly rust free and with low mileage and in your budget - don't know the car by the way or seller https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C972429

    Knocking and vibration

    I suspect your right - have it rebalanced.

    High mile 518i , why not?

    I've had a later 518i. Great car. Lovely to drive. Easy to potter around town in and sits at 80mph on the motorway no bother. Don't have to screw it to get the power out of it like a 520. Its not a fast car by no means but Id have another one over any 520 any day.
  6. Didn’t say it was or wasn’t rare was just trying to understand why OP says it’s rare. But it when it boils down to it a 530i se wasn’t exactly a rare car say compared to an e30 m3 or an Alpina or champagne edition or an individual colour
  7. Ah so it’s rare because of the mileage https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-search?postcode=gl517bb&make=BMW&model=5 SERIES&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&maximum-mileage=50000&year-from=1995&year-to=2002&advertising-location=at_cars&page=1

    M30 Servo conversion - ditch the bomb

    Because apparently the e34 servo is a far better job

    M30 Servo conversion - ditch the bomb

    Apparently the E34 Servo is a dual diaphragm compared to the single diaphragm on an e28. Where Im really coming from on this is that I think I have sourced a very badly rotten 535 and an excellent 520 shell and was trying to work out the complications of dropping the engine in from a braking point of view. I already have e34 m5 calipers disks and pads bought and would put the rear subframe from the 535 on the 520
