If BMW still makes the E23 5-speed, I'd buy it tomorrow in a heart beat!
It was such a pleasure to drive the E23 beauty on the highway, the M30 3.5L motor has so much low-end torque because of its single overhead cam, coupled with the 5-sp Getrag Man Trans ---> that I smoked many Corvette and Camaro's with Auto Trans....hehe. Plus the M30 engine compartment is logically laid out, easy to work on. The E39 engine compartment is TIGHT, making the job much harder.
