    Just an update to this thread, looks like the car does need an engine so looking to get a replacement one from Quarry Motors. I'm going to get the clutch changed because there will be no labour invloved, what gaskets would you guys recommend on changing and is there anything else I should renew on the replacement engine?

    Yeah sorry no compression. If the head gasket has gone am I right in saying they can't be repaired? Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk

    That's what I was thinking to be honest. It all depends on how good the replacement engine is I suppose. Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk

    Quarry Motors have a bare engine with 91k from an 03 plate e39 my e46 is an 03 plate too. I've been the sumps are different so that will need swapping over. Going to get whatever gaskets swapped over while it's out and all other bits will be swapped from my existing engine. Getting a BMW specialist to swap it over I wouldn't know where to begin. The car is in good shape to be fair hence why I.want to save it. Going to get the clutch replaced too. Is there anythimg else I should consider replacing? Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk

    Hi guys, I have an e46, I know it isn't a e39 but it has the same engine as the e39 530i engine. Three of the 6 cylinders are showing no combustion so it's going to be safe to say the engine is gone. I'll know more on Tuesday once the garage has add a chance to look at it. The car itself hasn't been a bad car so i'm thinking of doing a like for like swap but the engine i've found is one out of e39 as apose to an e46. My car is a manual and the engine I have found is out of an auto. My question is would you guys consider doing an engine swap or would you cut your loses and what kind of cost would be involved with removing and fitting an engine?

    I have one also in manual form. Is yours auto or manual. The prices on these have started to firm up. Out of the cars I own the e46 as a daily is my favourite. Looking forward to the thread. You got anymore interior pictures and what are the plans for it? Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk

    2001 E39 M5 sells at auction for £32,600

    What would you guys value cars with 80-100k currently at? Mine has covered 89k and was just wondering not looking to sell. Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk

    E39 530I Sport

    I'm looking at around £5k to £6k for the right car. It's mad because I paid £5500 for my imola 530i sport 13 years ago and my brother got a 530i sport which is still covered by BMW extended warranty and he paid £4500 last year just before the first lockdown. His has only covered 72k. Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the response, how do you go about trying to look at an import, are there companies that do it on your behalf or is it a straight forward process if I did it myself? Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk
