1994 BMW 530i V8 Manual. £1.7k

Now this would make a great fun family shed. Maybe something to run for the dog, shopping trips or the train car park? No, its not the 540i but this should do, and you see very few of these in manual and it has an LSD. What more is there? Get it bought. Link

530i 2   Advert text… BMW E34 530i V8 Manual Touring for sale. 1994 M reg, 122k miles Arctic Grey with manual grey leather, not heated. MOT 17/11/14, not currently taxed but I can do this at extra cost for the new owner if required. 

It’s a pretty well optioned car with LSD, Cruise Control, Air Con, Trip Computer amongst other things all from the factory. The chassis number ends GF60170 if you want to check the spec out.
The car is generally in excellent condition as the photos show. There are only a couple of body imperfections on it as shown in photos 10, 11 & 12, not bad at all for a twenty year old car. 

Interior is very clean and has worn well. All the electrics work, twin sunroofs, windows, all tailgate functions fully operational too.
I have not tried the air conditioning so potential buyers should assume it doesn’t work. All components are still in place though. Stereo unit shown in tyne photos is no longer fitted and is not included in this sale.
Recent work includes two new tyres, new front springs & strut inserts, new drop links at the front with and new rear standard shocks with updated springs to compensate for the SLS delete which happened before I got the car. New rear top mounts too.
The car drives lovely but would benefit from the front suspension going through as there is a slight vagueness to the steering and the tendency to tramline a bit. The steering box itself has some play as well so could do with tightening up as a starting point. Other than that, it’s ready to go. 
 
The main reason for sale is that the car just isn’t getting used. I looked for quite a while for a decent Touring and this one must be one of the better ones out there.
 
Viewing strongly recommended if possible prior to making an offer. I am willing to walk you around the car giving potential buyers who are a distance away an honest appraisal of the car. In addition, I can take as many photos as required of any specific area requested, please just ask
 
Please no time wasters! I don’t really want swap or part exchange offers on the car please, all sensible offers will be considered though. 

1991 e30 Track Car. M52 engine. £4.5k

I love e30’s, I remember going to a motor show as a kid to see the BMW’s and the M6 and the 352i Sport were my favourite cars way back in 1988…..along with the Athena print of the Countach on my wall of course! This looks like a tidy track offering that has been put together well and also looks the part. Couple of jobs to do but really ready to go as is.  Link

1980 E21 with V8 4.4l M62 Engine. £10k

Lovely track biased BMW, I was lucky enough to have a (shagged out) E21 as my first car, £850 it cost me….and as a result I am quite fond of them. This one will be a lot more fun and much faster than my little old 316. Full, weld in roll cage, brake bias and LSD makes this a serious tool.  Linky

1999 E36 BMW M3 with S54 engine

You might guess, but we are big fans of engine swaps here and this is the first one of these I have ever seen, an E36 M3 with the E46 M3 engine fitted. Looks like a tidy conversion. Reviews for the E36 M3 were never that positive after the E30 but maybe with the award winning block fitted this could be a winner.  Linky

With deep regret I am putting my much loved E36 M3 Evo for sale.  I’ve spent the last six months and a shed load of cash preparing this E36 for my annual Euro/Nurburgring trip in June.  Unfortunately it was never ready in time and thus I’ve decided to sell as I doubt I will be able to use the car in which it was intended.

Its a late 1999 Evo finished in Orinoco green, which was a individual option and quite rare.   I’ve been told it was an option on the late e34 M5s.  Its an amazing colour that will grow on you the more you look at it.  

The interior is a complimentary light green vader seat interior which suits the car and really sets it off. 

It has been in the hands of enthusiasts all its life and comes with a A4 folder full of almost every receipt/service invoice/MOT.  Included is a spare key and the valet key.

The main specs of the car:
1999 T reg
144k miles
Orinoco Green with light green vader seats
FSH
Harmon Kardon upgraded stereo system with Becker headunit

Upgrades and Modifications:
S54 engine fitted with under 25k miles
CSL headers/manifolds
Stainless decat e46 pipes
New Z3 1.9 quick steering rack
Eisenmann race rear exhaust
Evolve remap (includes deletion of various sensors/CAN as required to work in an E36)
BMC induction kit
Porsche 996 front calipers with CSL discs DS2500 pads
Porsche 996 rear calipers with e46 M3 discs DS2500 pads
Racing Blue brake fluid
HSD MonoPro coilovers
Eibach rear camber arms
Storm motorwerks gearknob
Used 18″ AC Schnitzer type II split rims with brand new Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tyres in M3 sizes.

Servicing and consumables replaced
Rebuilt E36 M3 Evo rear differential with E46 M3 Crown and Pinion 3.62 ratio fitted
Polybushed rear axle subframe
All hub bushes replaced with Lemforder spherical bearings
RTAB polybushed
FCAB polybushed
Undersealed
Oil change with Castrol Edge 10W60
OE oil filter
Gearbox oil changed
Diff oil changed
Racing Blue brake fluid
New AC condensor – AC system regassed
Coolant replaced
Samco coolant hoses fitted
All aux belt tensioners/idlers replaced
Sachs E46 M3 clutch replaced
Lemforder track and tie rods
Hunter four wheel alignment – set up for fast road/occasional track work

The S54 conversion was carried out in house and was based on a E46 M3 engine removed from an 2005 car that had been sourced from a well known member on M3cutters.
The car was dyno’d at Evolve and made 354 BHP consistently.  The only other modification I would add is there new induction kit with will add a few more horses.

The factory E36 Evo 6 speed gearbox was retained, it shifts super smooth and a true joy to shift from cold to hot.  We used an E46 clutch and its smooth and controllable.  In fact its really soft compared to the E36.

The factory clocks have been used and all functions prior to the conversion work including:
Oil temp
Functioning Sport button
Air conditioning – custom window switch utilised to ensure the AC cuts off at higher rpm
EOBD compliant – the ECU can be read with a generic code reader
Other systems can be still read using under bonnet socket as per E36.

Pretty much everything I’ve listed is brand new, even the brakes have not bedded in!

The car sounds EPIC and has a totally unique sound to it – very much unlike an E36 or E46 M3.  Its been described as a mini V10 noise.
Its smooth and comfortable, yet offers amazing handling and so much torque from the S54 engine.
