View Full Version : I'm looking to see if there are any iX m20 engines around

Like the title says, I'm looking to see if anyone knows where to find an m20 engine from an iX. Anywhere in the GTA region would be good. I might travel a bit further.

M20 in an iX is the same as a M20 in a 325i. I believe just the tranny is different.

Yeah if only it was as easy as just swapping in an i engine. Thanks for the suggestions. Supernaught's suggestions both came through with engines so I should be okay. I'm actually looking at a car with a 'dead' engine. So I might pick it up for cheap and throw in a replacement. I'll keep you guys posted if it comes together.

Hey man. Yeah it's been a while. I lent my car to a friend for the fall, so I haven't had it. While he had it the wheel bearing wore out, and when I got it back, it was basically not drivable, so it's stuck in Toronto while I wait for the parts to fix the front of the end.... only to then take it home to store it.

I'm seriously considering picking up this ix for the winter, so we could be ix buddies, lol. I heard you mention something about not wanting to drive the car because someone was coming to see it?? looking to sell?

wha? dave, say it aint true

Idk what you mean, how long ago was this?

This is blasphemy!

I might have said I didn't want to drive it one day because it resembles the feeling you get when you see the Mona Lisa, The Taj Mahal, or The great wall of China and all you can do is stare in awe and amazement and wouldn't ever think of disturbing them.... But those are the days when it's raining.

When it's nice out and you drive it it's alot like having angry sex with angelina jolie while duck hunting with rocket launchers.

Unfortunately we can't be ix buddies this winter because mines put away now....good luck with the search though.

Glad to hear it! Mine should be sleeping soon, I'll let you know if I get the ix in case you wanna see how an ix does in the snow!
