1988 BMW 325i 24v m52 swap 88 BMW e30 m52b28 swap. Somewhere around 222k on the body.

No rust.

The motor has 174k right now.

Transmission has 112k. Fresh install with warranty last month. The transmission is a zf320 manual from an e46.

I have had the swap completed and driving regularly for a little over 2 years now.

Engine and transmission had all gaskets and seals replaced. I have run only high quality full synthetic fluids in every system.

Clean title.
