How or why did that wind up in a salvage yard?!?! Must have been an auction car that noone was savvy enough to know what it was.

I'd guess M56 fuel pump.

If the VIN has a PJ in it. You're correct. :thumbup:
The engine cover says it is a M56 car.

*Well it says it has a M56 valve cover lol

If I was to buy car, the engine wouldn’t stay in. That said, I don’t know if the M56 presents any complications that would prevent an “easy“ S54 swap.

There are some issues with the emissions system and the fuel tank as I recall.

100% agree with all of Mark's comments, I'd wish it had heated seats though.

I've been considering getting one of those for a couple of years now. But they only come in blue and I haven't' seen any other similar ones with style 135 wheels that I could swap out. If the price wasn't so crazy I'd buy one and disassemble it, paint it red and add a bunch of LED's to it.
Why would they make others when they already make them in the best color?
:D
