    You can fit the m50 manifold as long as you don't have a M52TU engine, so you will be fine aliS

    IIRC the M50 tb doesn't fit, you need to modify the existing one. The tb is also different if you have traction control.

    I have replaced TB's on a few cars (not just BMW's) and wouldn't bother doing it again as it's only a small difference.

    Thanks Ronnie, I know I have the M52, not the TU engine, But in 2000 the car did have its short block replaced as it suffered from the nikisil problem. Is the difference between the M52 and M52TU not just the block?

    No, TU has dual vanos, the inlet ports are spaced differently IIRC also hence why the manifold won't fit

    gottya, Cheers man, I think I'm definatly going to give it a bash. The car does seem a bit retricted top end.
