Good morning all,

Now it has:
  • nice powerful engine BMW M57,
  • engine monitoring on Android Unit (2 DIN size)
  • lifted body (2") and suspension lift (2")
  • shock absorbers and spring coild OLD Emu (extended 2")
  • reinforeced breake system DBA parts
  • allmost 1m diameter tires 325mm width
  • media center (2 DIN size)

Still far to go with detailing but already is fun to drive.

Where are the engine pics?
Yes, that is what I want to see in great detail, this is apparently a popular engine swap in Russia, great engine but way to expensive to contemplate here.

Cheaper than you think here. You can pick up a whole car with a decent engine for about $4,000. Sell off the rest and it's a winner. Kits still coming out of Poland from Warsztat 4x4 warszawa i okolice

The 3.0L Diesel M57 specifically is in the 3 Series, 5 Series, X3, X5, etc. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_M57
And here is an example Log into Facebook
I was looking into this a while ago when contemplating what to get for the next family car. And thought these x5's were pretty cheap and thought they had this M57 engine. But if I remember correctly it was a different variant, possibly N57 that we got.
Anyway after hours of trying to work it out I concluded the sort after M57 was not common here and gave up on the idea.
