Previously I reported that I thought my spare engine came from an Australian delivered E34 M5 GA25374 based on the engine number.
I have a friend in BMW who does me occasional favors, he's reasonably senior in the company and very busy so I don't ask him often.
Anyway he checked on the Asian database to try and match the engine number on my spare S38 to a chassis number and there was no data on the BMW Asia system so he put a request into BMW Munich , this was the response.
Your spare engine was originally fitted to E34 M5 chassis number GA25349, production date Nov 1990. This car was originally delivered to BMW UK.
So my spare engine is out of GA25349 , spec as follows

So the ///M Registry needs the entry for GA25374 to be put back in Australia I guess and GA25349 to be listed as Indonesia and listed as 'wrecked' , we don't know the whereabouts of this M5 and looking at the condition of the engine I doubt it was running.
