That sucks!

What size are they? Will you be getting the bends fixed? If so, from where?

Not surprised. For that price I knew something had to be fishy but at least it leaves you room to get them re-straightened.
What was the name of the place so we protect ourselves.

My new policy is not to buy used wheels unless I get to spin them on a balancer first.

At the very least, roll them on a flat surface. Some people are just too stupid to know if they are bent.

Yes, there is always a risk, I don't mind too much because I knew they needed some refinishing, but the funny part is that someone whe "has been working on those cars for 20 years" kept saying " I can't see anything, it's nothing..."

Back to new condition!

So it looks like we are doing the same thing. I too have the 01 sport, front end stripped, subframe cleaned, painted etc. Was reading about swapping in the m5 steering box, contemplating grinding off the tabs... and rewelding for the m5 box.

So my question for you, how are you going to handle the wonderful world of electronics ?

Do you have the e38 specific shifter arm and selector rod ?

It seems in euroland the e38 was manual up until 1999, and there might be some unique challenges with cars post that. ( Pedal assembly, shifter mounting brackets etc )

Anyways, seeing as we undertaking the same beast, figured we could combine some brain power.

How's this coming. I should come check it out because I'm so close.

Who's doing all the coding?

Nice to see another swap of this sort!!! You might be done way before me tho, at this pace I am moving at! lol

Electronics will be done by the experts at Stance Factory, they wired my E39 M5 swap in a day!

The shifter should not be a problem, I have the luxury of a warehouse full of parts to mix and match! Or worst case order from Europe. *wave*

In a MAJOR twist, this project has changed direction!

The S62 project will go into the Imola Red 740i I just got.

The silver car will still get a swap, but something even crazier, never done before!!!

My blue Individual 740il will be getting parted out.*wave*

v_bimmer 08-01-2013 05:12 PM

wow imola e38 is just *mw**mw*!!
