BMW 540i project car now in mint condition

The BMW 540 we blogged about last November has now been completely overhauled by our amazing Senior Mechanic, Craig.

There was a terrible knocking sound coming from the engine, which turned out to be the timing chain and guides.

To repair this issue, the engine has been pulled out and all of the broken chain guides and chain replaced along with all of the sump gaskets, timing case cover gaskets, water pump, coolant, oil and filter. Rocker covers have also been powder coated bronze as the paint was peeling.

This BMW beauty is now up for sale on Trademe. You can view it here.
