u're asking on the wrong forums....

u should really go to bimmerforums...

tons of E34 help there

seeing as i've done the swap on my Touring... if u have a parts car u're basically set other than whatever wears out/breaks on you.

stuff like throwout and pilot bearings should really be replaced. rear seals on tranny and the engine should be replaced as well...

other than that, u have all the parts necessary for the swap.
