LF: BMW V12 engine (M70)

As described - looking for an engine for a coffee table project, so it doesn't need to run. Really I only need the bottom end.


Not looking to spend a ton of money, so if someone knows where I can get one, let me know!

Thanks

There is a E32 750il at Mike's Auto Parts in Hamilton. The valve covers have been off for a long time so any hope of using the top end is pretty much over, but the block might be good.

Definitely!

However my GF and I are building a house this fall/winter, and she's agreed (provided it's nice and clean and polished) to put it in the living room

I had a 4 banger one yrs ago. Cool project though a v12 would be cooler and a bit more useful

Still looking for one of these - let me know if you come across anything (even if it's not yours!)

Thanks!

No need to wonder what happened; i reported it. Nothing about "getting hurt" here! Tom runs a good business, and can afford to do his part in this community.

If you want to "help out" and do charity, pay my advertising fees!

Sorry Shawn.

I don't understand how helping a friend with a part is a problem when I have access to it. I could understand if I was posting for sale ads and whoring the "Looking For" section. This is a single case and I'm out to help a friend, not making sales for Tom.

I'll take your advice on advertising though.

You've got my number, I've got yours - we can do this offline and save the headache if need be.

Plus, I called Eurostyle before posting up this thread, and was told they didn't have anything!

Ah well... politics

That said, if either of you do have something please let me know - the hunt continues
