    I decided to scout for one of these motors over an S85. It reduces my swap cost by about 10k....and rolled M3s are easier to find and cheaper than M5s. I saw a totaled M3 go for 3k the other day...motor and trans were fine...

    Well there is no gaurentee that these motors might be good. Who knows if it has a smashed oil pan or whatever. But in parts its still worth it to rebuild whats good over it compared to spending 8k on a used motor from Germany.

    Just google car auctions and some results should pop up

    Some nice swaps there...


    But running the S65 in the E36 without air filters is utterly stupid.
    Even more in all that dust.

    If the cylinder walls were not scored before,they are now...

    Sticky,like the idea of an S85 in an E9!
    Was thinking of an E24 with S85 quite a while ago...
