Thanks for taking a look at our 2000 BMW 528i. This particular car has had a bunch of work done to it; namely an engine swap and transmission swap(as confirmed by the numbers on the engine block and vin). This car started life as a regular 528i with the M52 dual Vanos 2.8 inline six attached to an automatic transmission. After purchasing the car we noticed that this thing moved along a lot quicker than a regular M52 only to discover that someone had swapped in a M54 out of the later cars. The M54 is a 3.0 liter straight six rated at 228 HP which is a 38 HP delta over stock. As stated above, someone swapped in a manual transmission; mixed with a heavy than stock clutch feel we can only assume it has an aftermarket clutch installed. We have replaced various items on the car including all front and rear suspension links, tie rod ends, radiator hoses, serp belt and tensioner, valve cover gasket, thermostat, and all engine fluids. This vehicle has an aftermarket intake and exhaust. It has also been treated to a square set up of E46 M3 replica wheels along with almost new tires. While not a perfect car aesthetically, this vehicle will make someone a reliable, comfortable, and fun daily driver. Come take a look!
