I was a bit confused by this whole transaction. I was directed to him because i heard he has an engine for sale. so i approached him to see if he would sell the head. Now i have met Noah quite a few times at meets when he used to be a BMW guy, so we are no strangers, i always thought he was a cool kid.

but here is where things get weird. we agree that i can have the head, the price was ok but i was willing to pay whatever because as i described to him i was in desparate need of a head. the terms were that i was to take the engine and separate the block and head myself and return the block to him. he wasnt comfortable with me taking the whole engine so he said he wanted a deposit, i said no problem.. here is the PM chain

absolutely, i can leave you some sort of deposit for the rest of the engine. i have no problem in doing that, as an act of good faith im ok with that. i just need a head. i can take it, get the head removed and bring back whatever you need asap and reclaim my deposit.

is there a phone number i can reach you at?

mark

i would rather not let the whole engine go unless im getting money for it... or at least a dopsit incase you dont come back

no problem, if you dont mind i can take the whole engine and then bring back whats left. i appreciate the response, your a huge help. do you have a contact number i can reach you at? also thank Vito for me. lol .

sorry i dont have the time to take the head off myself, so unless you want to come and take it apart or take the whole thing...

i dunno if your on much or not but i need to know if you want to sell that head. im in a time crunch. thanks dude.

all depends on how much you are willing to offer me for it

hey bro sorry again to hear your leaving the BMW scene. i have a favor to ask you. i heard you have an M50 sitting around. would you be willing to part out the head? i need one because i warped mine and cracked it.

lemme know asap

now at this point i add him to MSN via the forums because he was slow to check maxbimmer, and i talk to him about this situation we confirm that the last weekend was a good time to do it as he would be working on his car all weekend.

so friday comes.. i call and call
saturday i was at work and i call and call , message on msn with my cell number attached
sunday... call and call
monday... call
tuesday message on msn..
........no response.
wednesday passes
thursday passes and i say **** this...

he flaked on me, and its too bad i thought he was always pretty cool. but he knew i was in a tight bind and needed a head ASAP.

i dont recommend trying to do business with him even though hes not in the BMW scene anymore. Oh and if someone wants that engine i recommend doing a leakdown test on it to see if it will even pass.

Is this the engine he was trying to sell a while ago that needed a rebuild?
