    Diff input/output flange compatibility

    Upon double checking the 545i uses a 215k/220k diff (same size casing as our e39 540i/530d diffs) on the e60 545i they come in a 3.38 so it may well be possible to swap the internals over and make e39 into 3.38 ill continue research and see what I find!

    Diff input/output flange compatibility

    The 3.15 in the 215 casing that the 540i/530d used are Very rare they were a reduced final drive option, they came standard on USA sport spec cars but for UK people there’s none about! i also want rid of the 2.81 on my 540i, options are import a 3.15 from the USA, or go for m5 lsd 3.15 however that’s best part of 1k some of the later cars e60/e90 also had 215k casing diffs and did have better ratios so it may be possible to get the inner parts like crown wheeL and pinion and swap them into the e39 casing, I think they had like 3.23, 3.15, and possibly 3.46 on offer, this is a far is I’ve got in my research of looking to get a better ratio!

    E39 525i/528i/530i/535i/540i wanted

    I think that’s what your going to generally get tho these days unless your willing to go for something like dan suggested, the jap imports are generally the best you’ll find. other option if I was you is buy something that is mechanically great and have the sills and other work sorted, as long as the jack points are ok then the rest can be tidied up for reasonable money, but just for reference I’ve seen cars that have looked totally clean round arches and sill ends and still had really corroded and in one case collapsed jacking points! most of the UK cars are suffering from this and if keeping for the long haul it’s going to be a bill that needs to be paid regardless imo.
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/193604646575 could be a cool project that one!

    Immaculate E39 530i SE

    Looks mint that, but the boot badge really needs re positioning as just looking at it then really wound me up!!

    Interesting 850csi on eBay

    The bonnet appears to be a rare and genuine alpina item, I can’t imagine there being too many of them around so that’s a cool upgrade! would be a stunning car built, I think the seller needs to get it back together and it could really bring home a fair amount then, it looks like all the hard stuff is done seems silly to list it as it sits now! https://www.carscoops.com/2020/01/gorgeous-1993-alpina-b12-5-7-coupe-with-manual-box-is-the-ultimate-e31-8-series/
  7. Very strong money indeed! although when put back together they are worth a lot these days! Personally if I was the seller I’d re assemble it and sell as a running driving car, as most of the work has been done looking at the pics https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224097685388
  8. What about an e34 540i/6 touring and stick an s62 in? Would be a cool build! https://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/214768/540it-hk32-code-unicorn-huddersfield

    £37k M5...

    Wow! Can’t believe you let that go, what an amazing build you created there, I saw your thread about the touring build, M5 touring sounds like a really cool project!

    E28 M535 Polaris Silver - for sale

    I remember being offered one in Polaris silver years ago, needed wings and a hit of welding £100 it was, I’d just hit 20 and had a 325i sport, wanted it as a project but as I was living at parents my dad didn’t want a “heap” on the drive! wish I could go back in time!!!
