    Hi all, been a member a while now after buying my 1998 540i auto in june 2010. I left my job as a SEAT Master technician after 14 years to open my own garage with my business partner,Which meant giving back my company SEAT Leon Cupra :( Without much spare cash i had to buy a cheap motor and on the day i was leaving work spotted a 540i for £1000 on gumtree in Londonderry. Went up that night and bought it for £950. Result!! Since then i have done alot of work to it which i will post about in the relevant sections, but these include: timing chain guide rails, valley pan gaskets etc, and best of all an M5 6 speed manual conversion inc LSD. Hopefully my experience will help other members who are interested in similar repairs and mods.

    Ryan
