Really awesome swap. After driving for a year, how is your mpg? Average 16 or so?
I get between 15-16 mpg on a weekly basis. The best I have ever gotten was 22 mpg on a long hwy drive. I have driven between Fresno and Vegas multiple times and averaged 20 MPG. The worst I have ever gotten was 11.

:wroom:

exxxxxcellent...... unless it was just a bunch of idling.

Still need to just give it to me.
I’ll sell it to you! I’ve developed a driveline vibration and have been eating through Center support bearings. I’m fed up and don’t want to work on cars anymore. Haha! It’s too exhausting! The last thing I want to do after staring into people’s mouths all day is work on something that I’ve already worked on and isn’t actually making my car perform better than it did before... ?

Hi All

I’m new to this forum. I’m currently completing a complete rebuild of my e34 - inside and out.

I’m also rebuilding an s62b50 with forged internals running a higher compression to the stock engine. I will soon swap the s62b50 with a complete drivetrain including a short ratio LSD.

My e34 has just been resprayed and blocked twice and is currently having the interior completely re-trimmed.

I will post some pics if there is still interest in this build....

The interior has been completely remade in black napa leather with black roof liner complete with blinds and a ski tube.

The exterior has been re-painted in the original Alpine Weiss with a 540i front bar sporting bilstein shocks, H&R progressive springs, 4 pot brembo brakes with slotted rotors the same size as the 1995 e34 M5...
