I didnt want to do this but since i have no time to do the swap to my car, the engine must go: its an M50, came out of a 94 325i automatic (so it was not abused), 130 000Km, has the harness and both computers, for the engine and transmission (just those are worth $450 and $250!) Selling everything for the price of just the engine, $1400 FIRM.

Well jon seeing as how they're both M50 engines i'm would assume that its more or less the same swap!
just a lot cheaper!
Talk to someone whos done the swap already!
