Congratulations on the BMW!

One question for you: is the engine currently in the E28 broken, not working, kaput?

Seriously, if you wanted an E28 M5 badly enough to swap an engine, you should have bought one.

It sounds like a great E28! Just MHO, but I wouldn't mess around with it by trying an engine swap. Drive it and enjoy!
