    It's back! Must have pulled it on a promise to buy and than had a no-show. He says local buyer couldn't get a loan. Maybe. Always bad form that leads to suspicions about problems with the car for the next auction, but here it is: http://ebayitem.com/250361330190

    If you look at the pictures, you see a bit of bug/stone damage like we see on most of our cars.

    Overall it looks darn good. However, my car and I would suspect, most of our cars are in as good or better condition. As stated by others, I would want to know more about the six speed conversion.
    Thanks,

    Too bad it's not stock anymore. Took the EDC out. And swapped the tranny. I think there were only 2 red on black autos built. Guess now there's probably only one.
    From the dead, I have 1 of 1 white/parchment autos....no more EDC and converted to 6spd as well. Do i care?

    What u want is a 840ci with 6 speed and S62.

    Failing that, a 540i with a M62 and a 6 speed, or an auto... waiting on finding a 6 speed.

    There are other options now they sell V8s with strong manual boxes... but not bolt-in and will require careful planning around drive shaft and ideal ratios. The new cars have must more Lowe end torque so the gearing may not work so well with an M62- just whatever you do don't buy a box they put behind a diesel motor, it'll probably never work right.
