Lots of ziplock baggies.

Was impressed with him shoehorning the engine/trans in there by himself. That's not super easy. Well, never was for me. Lol.

He’s looking for an E92 M3 project car - that will be very fun to watch.

Maybe he just likes doing rod bearings...

Agreed, I'll enjoy that, as usual

Always great vids from Sreten. Looking forward to his next projects. E92 M3 sounds promising.

So glad the money pit is finished. The amount that spent on seals and fluids for that thing is staggering.

Agreed. How many oil changes, gasket changes, new stretch bolts......?

I'm super happy he got that car sorted out. I was really hoping for a WOT at the end of the video once he went to synthetic. Really wanted to see a full pull as a closeout to everything he's been through. lol

Not an E65 fan either but the Alpina version was a bit more stylish. Sad thing is I bemoaned the death of the E46 when the E9X series came out I called em fat pigs and while yes they are, I feel I was wrong I like my 11 M-Sports 6MT and I love the practical use of my E91 just wished we got M57 or N5X and 6 spd as my auto puts me to sleep so it's in manual or sport mode most of the time.

330d RWD 6MT E91 is a very lovely package indeed. You've missed out.

Please don't misunderstand, I'm a HUGE E65 fan. I have an E65 B7. I actually like all of the Bangle era cars, I agree with Sreten that the E65 was the last proper 7 series. But it's a labor of love, there's always going to be at least one thing on it that needs attention at any given point in time. I can think of six on my car at the moment.

That's not just an e65 thing, in my experience. I always have a list for my e91

True, I think it's an 'out of warranty' BMW thing...

Very enjoyable to watch. I like his Touring also as we are Touring fans. We may be selling our 2002 Touring if we order a 2023 X5. Time will tell....
