Hi,

My Newest Acquisition, 1986 Euro M5 with Factory AC. Has a Broken Valve spring (Dual valve spring update was never performed and lasted over 174,000 km). wondering should I restore with the Original Engine or Install a S38B38 and make it a beast...

Gents, what are your thoughts ?

I think it would be sacriledge to put an S38 into an E28 M5. Definitely get the original M88 engine repaired. You will devalue the car by putting an S38 into it. I would put an OEM spec front spoiler and OEM wheels on it also.

Good luck with the car.
