FS:BMW 530i Sport E39 / Paras/ Bumpers etc £600

Recommended Posts

I think its either Glacier Green or Slate Green but can get code if anyone wants it  , Sand beige leather interior. Black headlining , aluminium trim

 

I bought this on impulse last week as I  thought I could use the engine for either my E34 or my E36 compact, on fact finding it looks more hassle than its worth with this type of engine so then I considered putting it back on road .

 

I don’t really have time for if I was honest as away with work and I care for elderly parents which takes up a huge amount of time and I have another 530d touring that should be back on road and various other cars so last thing I need is this to do

 

Needs a gearbox. A while back on a trip home the previous owner had the oil cooler burst on the motorway and first he knew was when it came up with Trans Failure on dash .. towed to local garage .. stayed there since .

 

It’s a genuine sport , bumpers intact , 18” staggered paras , celis lights etc usual stuff.

 

I put a battery in it and its started 1st time after been standing for a long time J Two keys , it locked/ unlocked as it should .

 

First aid kit is there , extinguisher is there , interior is clean , has a period Motorola flip phone in it , parrot fitted

 

I need £600 back for it , wheels , bumpers , lights,  etc probably all worth that on their own, I am not into breaking it as I think neighbours would have a fit , it’s a tow away job, could be done on a solid bar  as gear box is toast anyway

 

Any questions etc just ask

Hi I am interested. This looks like just what I am after. Thinking of doing an engine swop and some other things  my touring.

What is the year of manufacture, the mileage and how did the engine run? Any ideas about how long it was stood for? 

 

Lastly Where are you based?

The car ran great I am told.. I think it has sat in a mixture of a workshop and outside on and off for about 2 years but I can get that confirmed

 

I put a battery on it on Saturday there and it started literally as the starter engaged .. no knocks or misfires etc .. the torque converter has a whine but the gearbox is totally gone .. no drive in any gear at all .

 

I will get the registration number for you ( it still has the personal plates on it ) so you can see MOT history etc . I think its about 135000 miles

 

Its in Fife ( about 15 mins form Edin ) which is usually the killer as I se eyou are in London .. always the way .. buyers always seem to be miles away :(

Out of interest is it harder to put an M54 in a Compact than an M52? I heard the M52 was pretty easy to sort.

Depends if it’s e36 m52 would likely be easier on wiring side but mounting should be similar, for e36 I’d use m52 manifold if possible to retain the throttle cable rather than flyby wire, for e46 I should imagine it’s an easier swap as they cane with b25s so you could use most of the stuff off one if those to get the 3ltr running easy enough, e46 330ti conversion is something I’ve looked into myself! Bet they go really well!
