E38 with S62 engine

 Yes your eye sight is ok,,,,this is a E38 with a S62 engine installed,,,this engine swap looks factory from top and bottom also the 6 speed trans is installed. I was called in on this car,,,,the customer is having a hard time with California smog laws,,,,the smog referee is asking for a lot of info on the engine swap,,,the engine and trans swap was performed somewhere in Florida,,,,the person who performed the engine swap also burned in the VIN number into the S62 DME ,,,,usually when someone performs a engine swap the DME has the old cars VIN number still in the DME ,,,,the front suspension was updated and modified with stronger sway bar to support the extra weight.

    F32: Rubber drain channels between rear lights and trunk edge.

    This has bothered me since I bought the car.

    Q: Is the trunk side edge of these rubber channels supposed to be tucked underneath the weatherstripping of the trunk compartment? Driver side is not and passenger side is.

    • If I understand what you are talking about,,,,The trunk rubber goes over,,,,the trunk felt liner goes under the trunk rubber.

        I’m talking about the rubber piece (1 on each side) on the exterior side of the rubber gasket. It sits in the drain channel where water coming off the back window runs down (between tail lamps and trunk opening)..
