Just introducing myself and my project


Northern Ireland
BMW 2004 E60 520i
Hi all my name is wayne I’m from Northern Ireland and have purchased a cheap bmw e60 520i manual for a project, I’m not a mechanic but my brother in law is and will be on hand for stuff I can’t do, the whole car will get a full rebuild including upgrading interior/exterior full engine and gearbox rebuild full new suspension, a respray so basically the car will be striped and rebuilt to a higher and better specification I’m hoping for really good advice and input from the forum as I’m sure most of the members here will have done all of the things I’m going to be doing when I can add photos I will post them up of the car as it is now and I’m planning on doing a YouTube series of the project from start to finish.
I look forward to chatting with you all and picking your brains on what upgrades to do with the engine and all the advice I receive will be really really appreciated
