    Depending on your skills, perhaps a BMW 750 donor car may be your best bet (If you want to go with a V-12). Lots of work but a very solid engine and lots of support on the BMW forums.

    I've been very happy with the V8 in my last 540/ 6 speed and even the inline 6 in my daily driver.

    Try www.car-part.com - enter in your information, and it brings up a list of junkyards matching the request. I entered 1998 BMW 750i, and it brought up a lot of matches. It's a free site, by the way. Good resource for anyone rebuilding salvaged cars.
