hats a very nice 540i. I personally believe that the stock BMW motor is miles ahead of the LS. The BMW motor will continue to be strong 300,000 miles+ while the LS motor will deteriorate.

Enjoy changing the timing chain guide rails 3x by the time you make it to 300k miles.


Anywho,

Auction ends tonight and the reserve has been lifted at $13,000. This is a great deal for anybody looking for a super clean swapped E39. Goodluck to anyone who may be bidding!

GLWS! Looks like a cool car.

Deteriorate? That's a pretty broad term. You mean vaporize? Melt? Shatter into tiny pieces? Perhaps all the plastic bits will turn brittle and require replacement... oh wait, that's the m62 we're talking about. Pretty unnecessary comment in someone's for sale thread in my opinion, LS motors are just as durable as anything else when properly maintained.

LS motor is an absolute monster with endless mods and amazing MPG. When i had a vette it would get 30 mpg with 400 whp. Almost no other car can do that.

GLWS. what a sleeper!

I would agree, same thing happened to me at 150k, super brittle plastic just disintegrated.. I learned after the fact that its fairly common. In fact there is a kit for sale for just that reason.
