I'd like to hear how that Stebro exhaust sounds. I love mine! Love to hear the Stebro sound on an old school M5.

Hey guys, thanks for all the inquire. still have to go through the car to decide what to do. at the moment r having fun with the front brakes (the pins that lock the brake pads in the caliper r seized solid). also the P700z r so old the sidewall r cracking up, so for sure no test driving for the weekend *thmbsdwn* so stay tune.
oh btw the VIN is WBSDC9308J2791756, mileage is around 176k. the Alpina rims r the only rims with the car so cannot sell them at the moment.

what motor does it have?

TEUTONICFOOL 08-15-2007 09:24 PM

i think this car has the high-tech engine, the one that was pioneer by GM in the early '80s in certain Cadillac model. it is call the 2-4-6 engine. what it does is when u start the car up, especially when u let her sit for couple days, the engine is running on 2 cyl. once u let her warm up a bit (or if u still have the full set of tools in the trunk u can remove the spark plugs & clean them up 'cause they r completely foul) she will run on 4 cyl. once in the full moon ( or if u clamp on the fuel pressure regulator hose) she will run on the full 6 cyl.
i think BMW never admit that & call this engine M88/S38.

^^^ LOL

Yea its the M88 the predecessor to the S38 and also the same engine found in the M1, detuned ofcourse

Very cool. Don't see barn find M5s that much.

Ted in T.O. 08-21-2007 09:41 AM

Any updates on the car please?

BmW1819 08-21-2007 08:11 PM

yea price to :)

hi all, off for couple days. still have not decide what to do with the car yet. 2 many issues. free up the sticky brakes already, got 4 used tire, still chasing my tail about the engine shut off once warm up. still looking for a cat (or wait till next year when the car need no etest). the ownership paper is still a mess. MTO said has to transfer to another dealership (since this is a used car lot car). OMVIC said they have to release the restriction first b4 any transfer can be done (the used car lot had folded) stay tune!!

btw Red Liner740 the M88/S38 engine used for the m5 is actually the TUNED version of the M88 used in the M1, 286hp versus 277hp. of course those horses only come out in a good day, not 2 sunny & humid. not to mention 2 old, HEHE!!!
