    AWD oil pan for M57 Engine

    The M51 and M41 are based on the M40 block type and the sump is the wrong length with bolt holes in the wrong place. The Range Rover sump is all wrong. The front diff set up is different and the sump (or the engine) doesn't have anywhere for the BMW front diff to bolt to. Why the **** would you want to fit an old nail like the M51 to anything? 140 bhp if you're lucky.

    What is a fair price for an E34 M5?

    Compared to the shit BMW have been making recently, the 3.8 is a very good engine. Parts are expensive but they are still nuts and bolts. No Vanos, CanBus etc.

    Newbie intro

    They look so good in Calypso red on the 15" BBS wheels. Please don't 'improve' it.

    TRX Style 1 Metric Rim Re-barrelled to 17 Inch

    Not sure it's £2700 safe either. Factory wheels are destruction tested, I bet these aren't.

    Drop the car off at night and ask them do set the clearances cold. Also replace the cam spray bar banjos with new BMW ones, torqued to 12 nm or whatever they were. Set them to 12-13 thou. They run a bit better at 13. Some say set them hot but the trouble there is that the engine is cooling as you do them so the clearances will be slightly different at one end. Steam is standard, they all do it some extent. My E36 318i Touring was shocking and on a cool day my E32 isn't much better. I have a 1982/3 528i exhaust manifold, the two piece one.

    Experiences with Fritz Bits Exhaust ?

    They're pretty good tbh. How much is a genuine system these days? They were about £650 10 or so years ago for the centre and rear boxes. Probably £6500 now.

    The M51 is now used by the fishing industry as a boat anchor. There was never a 4x4 version and the sumps are different. It won't fit or work in an E61.

    Engine ECU, instrument cluster and engine wiring loom sold. Seems like nobody here has an E34 anymore.

    E34 TDS anti theft

    Depends what year it is but everything built after 1/95 has EWS that won't send a signal to the injection pump without the corresponding chip in the key and the EWS transponder box under the dash. There are three types of ECU anyway, one up to 9/92 which you won't see in the UK, another up to Jan 1995 and one from there on. Iirc the 92-95 one is 0281.001.183 but the EWS one might be the same Bosch number.

    3T alarm has to go! *found a solution*

    BMW dealer fit alarms are a piece of cake to remove, about 2 hours all in. Apart from the hardware you need to follow each wire as it plugs into the factory car loom and reconnect the two original wires.
