    Eko`s M50 project!!!

    This is my latest project-1987 320iSE automatic.
    Already started ripping out the engine and have an M50 ready to go in its place!

    This is when i went and picked it up last week-

    Fitted some lowering springs cause it sat like an off roader,these will be replaced later with Bilstien shocks and springs all round.
    Also fitted some clear front and side repeaters,looks much fresher IMO!
    Fitted some smoked smiley headlights too but not got a pic yet!

    Unbolted the M20 engine and box today ready for the M50 unit from this-

    Basically my plans are to get the M50 fitted and running and take all the best bits from my 318iS like wheels/leather/steering wheel etc and swap them too this.
    Hopefully ill have it on the road in the next couple of weeks,month at the most depending on funds!


    and thought you might like to see a pic of my front garden last week....

                          [quote="eko"]More progress :D
                          Went and picked the mountings up from the dealer this morning,nearly £90 lighter but 1 step closer i spose

                          Also took the M20 out!
                          Took a couple of pics along the way


                          Bought some diesel and gave the engine bay a scrub down


                          doesnt look that clean in the pics but it has actually come up quite well!
                          M20 loaded in the back of the tourer(now a 4.5lt 32valve winkeye )


                          Oh and M52 manifolds are on there way too :D

                          Tomorrow i start to take out the M50,hopefully give it a clean down then offer it to the E30!
