No engine swap is "plug and play"...You are taking an M3 and putting it in a 5 series...Call a good shop and get them to give you a quote. But its shouldnt be a very hard swap at all...oil pan, and harness work depending on what your car is...5spd, auto...and what the donor car was.

The swap is straight forward, all you need is the s52 long block!!
