Picked up a project for cheap that i’ll be building in to a hopefully reliable and presentable daily driver.
2001 Jap Import 530i Touring with 279,000kms
What was really appealing is that it’s been fitted with a gen M5 front bumper but the factory xenons have been replaced with halogen headlights. That’s going to be sorted soon.
It’s in pretty average condition but the paint and body panels are good which makes this an ideal project for me. The engine is a beaut too.
The list of to do’s go something like...
-Front Suspension o’haul including msport shocks and 25mm lowering springs
-18 Staggered wheels
-a slight drop in the rear (factory self leveling suspension)
-Fit a business rds radio to get nz stations and fit a bluetooth adapter that integrates with the factory setup
-Replace the povo interior with Leather seats and door cards, fit the technical graphite/cubic finisher strips
-Fit the correct Msport parts behind and under the front bumper
-Cooling system overhaul, fuel filter, mictofilters.
Give the paint a polish and wax and a heap of misc bits n pieces to bring it back to its glory.
