The hard part is finding one around here w/minimal rust.I have a buddy who is in the car industry and frequents the auctions so that is one avenue. Debating between a M50B25 or e36 swap.

I am searching about this alot.. Going this route would save me alot of time and cash with a ride that has not been exposed to salt.Reading on the RIV web site. Just have to find us sites with bimmers for sale. Know of any?

Thats a nice start but I dont think I could afford them. I like the projection head light conversion for them. Now thats gangstar.You going to keep it auto or swap?
