Sump was cracked when I got the car so it has been replaced and interior checked. Hopefully I won't run into some of the problems you mention.

It does have main bearing growl (over 3k rpm) and use a bit of oil, but at 350k kms and several missed services (thanks PO) i still love drining it.

Just for pose factor while doing the oil pipe I shall polish the rocker cover fins and BMW roundel and satin bleck the rest - very 'M'.

Exactly what I did...... including the complete intake manifolds....looks very neat
