BMW E39 5-series with V8 GM LSx engine swap



From the article:
The car was built by a man in his own garage, and the build thread is extensive. It has a GM LSx engine with a T56 6-speed gearbox and other various changes done to it. The quad tailpipes at the back look amazing and the whole car is just breathtaking.

Yes it is! He's a member over on Bimmerfest, where I've been following his build. That is a great car!

Last I heard, the guy I sold it to had passed it on to someone else. Don't know where it is now. Miss that car, was fun and very comfortable.

I keep in touch with the current owner, he is loving the ownership experience. From what I hear it's mechanically not too different from when I sold it, but he has plans to install upgraded heads, a supercharger, etc.





He did make some cosmetic changes in the form of a vinyl wrap. Not my style but then again it's not my car! I will forever remember it as the OEM+ version when I sold it, with gloss Schwarz paint and the M-Parallels.
