As title states.

Going prices for these engines that i've noticed on maxbimmer is about 250$

RMP had the block with no head for 150$, and recently dissembler sold it for 250$ complete i think.

so in terms of price, you know where I stand at...



thanks!

Just curious, are you looking for just the engine with no accessories? Or do you need accessories, wiring harness, DME, etc... because if you need all those things $250 is off the mark.

Let me know how long you can wait, I've got one that we can probably work something out on, milage is in the high 3's but worked great. It's still in the car at the moment though.

all the time you bumped you coulda worked and made the extra $100 you need to pay to get the motor you want.

^not when you're in school full time and are a broke student rich!

plus, im not paying 1000$ for this engine...and i dont want one with high kms.

i found one last night. picking it up this weekend! low miles and the right price for a broke student!

Nobody should pay $1000 for a M52B28 unless it's had some work done to it.

i guess i was looking in the wrong places, so many people wanted 7 8 9 $ for it, im calling it 1000 rounded up.

Broke student excuse LOL So love that one, I was a student, payed my way through school without OSAP but never thought I should be granted special treatment on the value of something. Its a bargaining excuse used to try and get something cheaper. Its like the "well I live this far so the price should be cheaper" line. ya cause last time I checked a big mac is cheaper because I have to drive 10 minutes compared to the guy who lives across the street. (I haven't had Mc D's is 7 years just an example disclaimer)

guess the point to my rant is your a great guy Rob, love seeing you out at the events, never said pay $1000, but I beleive someone offered you a motor for $300 - $350. Broke students can afford more with a weekend or two of no drinking. Try Mortgage, wife, 2 new cars and baby due in July, and went to school, that's an even better excuse, but its not used. I'll give someone the best price for something and they will still try and ask for more off, or meet me half way, ya cause the $10 I am going to make off a $20 sale that someone else wants you to pay $40 I'll give up my afternoon for that.

that being said a good M52 should be $350-$600 that's what I would sell it for. don't' have one in the shop right now but you never called me to ask, shame on you, cause you know if I have it you woulda got a great price lol

Anyway get that motor done cause I want to see you out this summer in the E30 not the folks E46!!!

it is an excuse, under the right circumstances. tuition has gone up so much, this entire school cost me about $8000, out of my own pocket. i dont have osap and im paying for this thing myself! then theres commuting costs on top of that. i dont make a lot right now lol...i only work 4 days/week! i dont even drink much....especially since my mothers cousin died of liver failure, dude his skin was yellow. that made me feel queasy...

im trying to my best to keep my e30 going good, and this time, im doing what i didnt do right, right. i want the head and block, thats it no accessories. people wanted more than 600 for it, all in the low to mid 200k kms! no thanks. btw, that one guy was selling the m52+ ZF tranny for 400 with "250k" kms, but pm'd me saying hes got one for $500 @ 200k kms. i said dude its the same engine in that thread, because he posted it himself! he never replied to me after...sooooo ya.

and **** ya i want to autoX more, i want to put the billy sports to the test!

dude I agree on the outrageous prices some people ask, and its laughable, but the other end of the spectrum is no better.

I drove beaters for 3 years going through school, scraped by and all, but it builds character, you'll end up a better person in the end.

plus I bet your learning more working on your car then you are in class!

shouldn't your build % be at 0.5% now that you have found the motor?

nah, i got my $'s worth of knowledge gained in university. im quite honoured to even have the opportunity to attend a post secondary school! i've learned a butt full of shit! i also learned so much because of my e30. im on the final chapter for the e30...almost time for a new book :)




0.5% lol..........1% is more generous to reflect the hassle in finding one :p. ill add another 1% for the dave making that happen, and another 1% for doogee, for the pseudo-recommendation :p
