My E39 540it M-Sport project
 
5 Attachment(s)
Or should i say 550it project! As some know i have been looking for a clean shell to swap my S62 driveline into, original plan was an E38 740i Sport but all i could find was IL's...So when this rare find came my way, i knew it was the one; meet the 2002 540ita M-Sport!!! The car is very clean, making it the perfect base for the M5 engine and 6 speed swap.

Thanks guys! Super excited about the project, still trying to find out just how many of them were made/sold...So far foud only 482 Tourings with M62B44TU were made, but not sure how many were M sport, or in Canada (handfull is my guess). The more i look at wagons, the more i *mw**mw**mw*

^^^Drop by anytime! The engine just sold, so we are pulling it this week, the S62 is also getting pulled off soon, time to order some new gaskets and seals!

Like I said on the phone when you call me, sickest possible project.

If it existed from BMW, I would be owning the M5T! I thought about it in the past. Here is a lot of fun stuff for you to read through;

Great colour combo, just get rid of the wood, fast. Haha


Here are a few pics from my collection I came across;

Did you buy this car from a gentleman named Graham? I'm pretty sure I saw this EXACT car a few years back when I got my initial diagnosis for my left knee, thought I'd be stuck driving automatics for a couple years. Sweet project, I've always wanted a M5T.
