Up for sale is a 75 BMW 2002. In May I decided to do a motor swap intoit. The car currently has a 91 M42 engine and a Getrag 240 Transmissionin it. Both of these are held in place with Jakeb's motor swap mounts.

The motor has about 200k miles on it and it has new water pump, sparkplugs, and fluids in it. The transmission was professional rebuilt about14k miles ago. The flywheel and clutch were also replaced 14k ago.

The swap is about 85% done, I'm trying to move so I want to try and getrid of these project. The things you need to do to the car to finish theswap up is finish the wiring. There are about 12 wires that need to besoldered together to start the car. I have the wires on the motorswiring harness labeled and ready to go but the car's wiring harnessstill needs to be labeled and messed with.

The exhaust also needs to be done. I have the headers installed and Ihave a muffler but someone needs to run a pipe to the back of the car.Once those two things are done all you will need to do is hook up thesteering (6 nuts) and the car should be done.

There is a local certified mechanic that has been working on the car offand on with me. He charges $30 a hour and could finish the swap himselfif you don't want to do it yourself. We have been following Jakeb'sguide that can be found at dailyclassics com

The car was stolen a few years ago and the interior was stolen soInsurance salvaged the tittle, Because of this the car has had theinterior redone.

I followed the rust guide found atnet/buy02.html,When I was taking pictures so you should be able to see all the commonrust areas found on these cars. If I missed one and you want to check itout please let me know and I will go out and take a picture of it foryou.

New interior

Straight Body
Good Gas Mileage 40+
Chipped ecu
