      That depends. If he sticks the M42 in it that I think he might be ending up with, itís got only about 90k miles on it.

      Just going off what I recall and recent auctions, the M50 swap may pull 8k tops. There has been 318isí with rebuilt or replacement engines that have crossed 10k. Iím going to play it safe and say 2k is a fair estimate of the final value difference you could see if you bring it back to stockish.

      Then you could unload the M50 swap for a grand or two as well.

        I am also curious to see how the nicely modded 325is does. Over 12500 certainly.

          Be hard pressed to prove the engine isn't original to the car. Wasn't even until the end of the (Us market) e30's had the VIN sticker on the engine bits, and even then it's a laminated sticker which I have seen fully bleached out by now (even see e36 stickers that can barely be read).


          The Euro engines got identification stamps, though.

                                I really like the touring, wish the e39 we just picked up was a "t".


                                Picked up 1 owner with all documentation/receipts (well 2nd owner had the car for ~6mos serviced at my place) e39 540 M-Sport 6 speed for $1k. We did a new alternator and 2 oil changes, and the PPI for owner #2. We had a small flash flood and the owner (#2) decided to try and make it through the puddle - hydro-locked the 160k mile motor and put a rod through the pan/block. Low mile m62 is sitting on a stand awaiting time to change the timing components and install. Gonna be a sweet daily :)


                                Oh, and since we have off topic cars, this caught my eye since I had a 72 620 manual truck in the mid 90's (my first engine rebuild) that I bought for $300 in really decent shape....the modern prices of these are blowing me away as they were littered in the JY's back then. :(
