    Don't be silly These N series V8s are a different series of engine. Chances are the bell housings are different

    i've never seen one of these before. What a stealth tram! I bet she gets a move on!
  5. This is nuts, an M5 wagon is worth way more as a car than in bits. Unless its going to be rung Bastards

    Need Help...Broken M5

    my 3.8 was 5 litres, i can't see the 3.6 being different

    Need Help...Broken M5

    No the 3.6 is a tough old unit. My top tip? Use pukka oil thats an ester based synthetic oil in whatever grade you like. Arguments on what grade to use will exist forever. (I ran my 3.8 on mobil 1 10-60 lots like 15-50) Let the oil temp warm up before you give it. Don't drive it like you stole it everywhere and it won't grenade. I took my old 3.8 to the nurburgring with 140k on it, did 13 laps in a weekend on track and hit 150mph on the autobahn on the way there and back with 4 people in it and the boot full. My point is with the right love and a little sympathy these will carry on into high milege and still reward. There will be bills, always has been when you want to be top of the tree!

    To be fair this car has covered, high milege, its been clocked and its had a few owners who havent looked after it before any of these forum guys bought it. Might sound harsh but if you want a mans car, you have to pay the mans bills. M5's get more expensive to run the older they get

    the 3.6 MAF is also used on the 968 porka, e34 alpina bi turbo and certain audi quattros. The guy in cambridge is a well know repairer of them in porsche world. 3.8 MAFs are back online, BMW will send it to bosch for a rebuild and its 500 euro at the minute The 3.8 cams were fitted by Phil crouch to your car, its the pink floyd car isnt it?

    E34 525 ... looks lovely

    it does it makes a huge difference, someone who fits quality tyres doesn't scrimp elsewhere - that rule rings true everytime. Cheap tyres are a false economy and the effects the whole driving experience. Someone who doesn't mind shelling out £100 a corner often doesn't mind paying out to keeping the aircon working even though its 25 year old car he knows it blows coolere than most new cars... the guy who likes a nasty £40 tyre is happy to drive some shit box thats need a fuse and a regas to get the aircon working again and normally isn't fucked about much else like changing the oil on time. Seen it too many times
