The odometer...........> a complete engine rebuild by a very highly regarded E34 M5 enthusiast.
How do you know that the engine was a) rebuilt, and b) by whom ? It was not David. Who was it ? Is a rebuilt engine = new ??
A car dealer comment 'new engine' could mean,
new AT-BMW-OEM-engine, original engine rebuilt and restored or simply another engine from a donator vehicle. For this reason it
would be interesting to learn what the actual serial number is of
the engine that is fitted to the car now.
Excellent questions - I assumed David was the one who had replaced the motor, and knew he would have done so correctly. I stand corrected. Wouldn't it be nice if this sort of honest open discussion was permitted on Bring A Trailer?

I rather prefer facts, which I can also prove.

1.Fact: on the official website of gov.uk you can get the Mot history by specifying the reg-plate number and get the mileage/Kilometerzahl of the last Mot. Like “J731 WEW”
https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/

2.Fact: for gear and engine existed matching number. In the old BTX system they were still available. See three photos on post #8

The enginenumber is also listed on every BMW Classic certificate

Bring A Trailer is just a business and not a discussion forum

Thank you for that link, interesting and very useful !!:smile
The 'facts' do also correspond with the history (and facts) that I have on file for that car for the time between year 2002 and 2017.

1. I assume this MOT-check does work for existing/registered
cars only, i.e. the car is still registered in the U.K. ??
2. agree, with some luck it will be possible to find out the serial
number of the factory engine, we'll see -:wink

I am a bit puzzled how BaT and people in general 'over there'
deal with matters like this and how much money some are prepared to pay for a car with such a doubtful background
(after that David had sold it, that is !).

That's very old Germanic of you, and I agree completely. I wish your country's politics were as fact driven.

Yep, and it clearly proves mileage fraud on the car as represented.

This is great information! I'll certainly make use of it to more fully document my cars.
