    Yes the steering wheel was swapped from my m3 part out. I'm swapping it back to the original one though.

    If you still have it in a few weeks I am definitely interested. I'd even fly out and drive it back to FL! I assume it runs well with little or no problems?

    Nikasil problem?

    Looks like a real nice ride! I had a "Cosmos black" 1995 540i exactly like this one. I bought it at 103,000 mile. I learned the short block was replaced at about 84,000 due to the following problem below... Mine ran like new for a long time and I never had any issues related to the Nikasil issue after they changed the short block.

    It's a great ride thought!

    From Wikipedia...

    "The Nikasil problem

    BMW used Nikasil, an aluminium, nickel, and silicon alloy, to line the cylinders of the M60 engines. The cross-hatched Nikasil linings react with the high sulfur content found in lower-quality gasoline, such as that used in parts of the United States all gasoline used in Brazil and also in the UK. This reaction causes damage to the very top of the cylinder bore, where there is the most contact of the burning mixture and the cylinder lining. The damage prevents a good seal from forming between the piston and the cylinder wall, causing a loss of compression in the combustion chamber. This "leak down" will cause M60s with worn linings to exhibit a rough idle, and if the problem continues unchecked, the engine will not start.
    The only permanent fix for this problem is the replacement of the short block with the equivalent block composed of Alusil, which do not exhibit this corrosion problem. After the problem was found, BMW issued an extended six-year, 100,000-mile (160,000*km) warranty to cover these engines at no cost to the owner. In the USA and UK sulfur rich fuel is being phased out.[1][2] There's also theory that if car has survived to date (almost 20 years) then it's not endangered anymore because engine was since replaced, or it wasn't affected."
