people have done the v12 from the 750 and 850 it probably costs way to much the motor from the 735 or at least the older 735s will fit in the e30, the m30 swap isn't that uncommon

Thx, v12 from the newer 750/850's will be insanely expensive.

Thats so dodgy - what country is that car in. In NZ we have to actually have our springs captive in the back!
