This has been on craigs for a while, anybody seen it yet?
I have seen the ad, not the car in person. I think it is a bit on the pricey end. The car appears stock other than the wheels. I bought my E28 533i for $550 and sold it for $1700...

This could be lucrative, if you can get some money plus the E38 for your Jeep.

It has been done, and it sounds AMAZING, but not a straightforward swap. Its a bit of a PITA engine. skip to about 0:55 in this vid. Its an M60 swapped E28. It sounds heavenly.

E34 535's are awesome cars. I wonder if it is a manual?
I love this thread. And that car.

Most likely not, only something like 900 of them are.

HA definitely not, they're not that rare. A few thousand, definitely, but not 900.

That sound makes me inappropriately excited.
