o man, thats gotta suck. why not do a swap (if u can). What exactly is the problem of the engine? Why not do something so important at BMW?

well if I took it to a dealer I'm looking at a few thousand easily, my car is burning oil severely, it's real bad, if I had the time and the right tools I would do it myself, but I can't, so I'm forced to taking it to some shop, it someone can find me an engine - hopefully a 4.6is engine & price that would be nice.

141000km, the problem is that all these problems showed up 3 weeks ago, I thought it was something else, now I'm deciding what would cost less, buying a 4.6 or rebuilding this block and do some engine work on it

i always go to Leon's Auto Body in Toronto...they might do rebuilds....its ran by 2 brothers, 1 does the mechanical stuff, the other does body stuff.. ask to talk to Ed.
ive been taking my car there for brake change, oil changes, clutch change, and many other things, and they dont rip off at all.

Hydrolock=Big hole in the side of the block

I saw it myself...don't know if it is repairable or it may cost too much to fix.
