Arrow FS - 2011 S65 Engine - 36,XXX KMS

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
UPDATE - The S85 my buddy has, actually only has 1,200 ORIGINAL KMS on it, NOT 12,000 miles so this is now officially a for sale thread!!

Hi all,

A while back a friend of mine picked up a totaled M6 but the engine, tranny, exhaust and all necessary components are in 10/10 condition with only 12,000 original miles. After searching for an M5 that was in need of an engine, he hasn't been able to find a 'good' deal and after a bit of talking he is willing to give it to me for a great price with the only catch being I have to get rid of my engine/tranny myself.

As many of you know my engine blew at 12,000KMS and BMW replaced it under warranty, being a replacement engine, I can hand on my heart say that it was run in as per BMW requirements and it hasn't been abused to this day (no speeding tickets can help confirm that lol). Oil changes have been done regularly and never over filled. Also, it has been kept fresh and no dirt has settled anywhere.

I am not sure what to list it for but I do know what the swap + labour will run me and I am willing to work as close to that as possible for the guy/gal who wants to pick this beauty up.

Last thing, please do NOT waste my time. Just because I am not sure what to list it for, I am still aware of it's price point.

~ I know many of you will have your opinions against this and yes the SMG is in every way less superior to our DCT, BUT it is my choice and a project I've always wanted to undertake. So please leave all that out of my feeler thread. Thank you. ~

Forget swapping it into your E9X...

Find a E30 that needs a motor.

So if I understand you correctly, this is an SMG transmission? I have an 88 E30 M3 that I was thinking about doing an engine swap too. This might work.

No, he is selling his S65 with DCT and swapping in an S85 with SMG. I think.


This is an awesome swap IMO. I LOVE the sound of the S85 with a nice exhaust. I think it sounds better than a lot of exotics!

No room for another car at the minute. Maybe this time next year.

No sir. This is an S65 V8 4.0 engine from an E92 M3 with DCT transmission. Would be great in an E30.

Any chance the DCT can be adapted to the S85? Please make a build thread and update it often!

That's what we're going to try and figure out and hopefully have a solid answer this time next week.

Definitely will!

Sorry, I already know freighting it to Australia will probably cost 1/2 the price of the engine. I know it won't be worth it in your eyes. IMO.

Damn, this would make a nice platform for a LC engine build. It certainly would limit the down time.

(You are selling the engine and DCT combo correct?)

It might still be worth it for him. Things like this are in short supply in Australia and are likewise very expensive. It's often cheaper for Australians buy things from the US than in country (even despite the good exchange rate right now).

Guys check on eBay and you'll get a reference that these motors sell for about 8-10k. I also don't see it being an issue to bolt up dct as the s85 is essentially the same engine as the s65 with 2 extra cylinders. Also the 6 speed has been known to bolt right up to the s85
