Because he's an Essex monkey.
But why, why *WHY*, do that to the nicest BMW of all time?
<burn the herrtic!>
I do know of an E24 which had an 850CSi engine/drivetrain 'transplant though
(for which I would *willingly* sell my soul to Satan)
The reason he did this was money; (ie: he didn't have much), and his
540Tourer caught the nikasil virus. His Dad used to run a breakers yard
which had in a rolled 850CSi from which he got the engine/dirvetrain and
many ancills. Took him 3 months to do the conversion he said, the worst part
being the pipework for the exhaust.
Very tidy job in the end, but I wouldn't have fancied working in that engine
bay. A gynaecologist would be better than a mech I'd reckon.
