Sub'd! I have literally no good reason to own an E38 shorty sport nor a place to park one.....yet I want one! Haha. Can't wait to see how this turns out - Alpine White is a great color and the E38 wears it very well. Dare I say better than Estoril Blue?

OMG I love the E38 M- Sports.. How did you find such an amazing deal? I would love to find one like that and just keep it stock. That interior looks amazing! It will be a beast after the swap but it's gorgeous now.

Got his NBT kit today:




Also, got the parcel shelf off the subwoofer and the speakers are super blown:



Apparently FL sun does it's damage no matter how low the miles are. C pillars were also quite brittle, but they might be able to be repaired.

The main thing is to get everything that's going to Brian's out of the car before Friday. Looks like that leaves the tan door panels and lower b pillars, but those shouldn't take long to take out. Carpets, console and dash can wait until later, so I can move the car around as needed.

Oh, and a test fit of the screen:

Thanks Zaid. I won't be doing the S62 swap on this one, I'm leaving that to Trevor, but this car is going to be so sick when it's done.

Not sure who it was directed to, but yes, it will be getting a S62 and 6-speed, hence the reason why it's in the M5board in the first place . I was saying above that I won't be doing the swap myself, but rather that Trevor (Trevor7008) will be doing it, since he has done a few S62 E38 swaps now and I've got a few other swaps I'll be doing soon. The car is with me getting the interior swap, NBT install, e39 facelift sport steering wheel, and a few other things done, before it will, I assume, go back to Brandon's until Adam can find him an engine/transmission/diff. Once that happens, I think it will be back down to SC for the powertrain/drivetrain swap.
