Brought this beautiful e46 316ti for £500 as a project car. It is smoking alot when on Idle at traffic lights. Possible valve stem seals? If so can anyone help with advice on putting a 2.5 or 3.0L engine in? Don't want to scrap the car

I have a e46 328i, which has the mechanical fan on the engine (it's a manual, but the engine was swapped from an auto). Since I plan on drifting the car, I would much prefer an electric fan on the radiator. Now, there are many threads on this conversion, and i know it's straight...

Anyone that's done the 996 rear brake conversion on an E39 touring, can you confirm if the adapters are the same from an E46 to E39?
Or where they bought the adapters from?
Seen a set on addiction Motorsports but not able to see/visualise the difference for a touring.

Just looking to get a feel for the average cost for a manual conversion for a 6 cyl E36. Either a ZF or 220. They are pretty scarce here and looking to ship a couple over. Is eBay pricing about right or are they higher than what you can expect to find on the forums? Cheers...
as well as my 2013 520d, I own 3 Rover P6 V8s. My father in law had carried out a lot of work on his one prior to his death. As I had two many cars at the time I gave the car to someone else with the promise it would be put back on the road, which it was briefly until it was raided for...
Just wondering if anyone has experience changing from dual to single mass flywheel on E39.
Will I notice a driving difference or is it much the same?
Wouldn't want to lose much doing the conversion, but it's significantly cheaper so for me kinda hard to avoid just now.

Does the doner car need to be post facelift for the electrical side of things ?
Could i use a...

Just wondered if anyone’s considered changing the old filament bulbs in the instrument cluster for LEDs?
I’ve always thought the E31s illumination - especially on the clocks - was very poor, and yes I do have the dial turned up!
I need to take the cluster out soon to reseat a troublesome right...
