M42 to M50 Swap

Ok guys, I've got an 318is 93 AUTO who's still very clean. But I need more power!!! I'm thinking of getting an M50 with new MANUAL tranny and new dif. swap. Is that recommended? I know many of you will tell me to sell my car and get a 325is but I the swap seem to be less expensive. So should I need to keep me away from this mod?

if you car is in great shape, then do the swap.. it's not expensive if you do both at the same time.

Look in hebdo.net There's a 99 M3 with 83,000km for $22 grand in Boucherville...nice machine...


And Adam(bmdbley'sBro) has a turbo in his with more km's then you if I'm not mistaken.....


What was the final price for the Swap? Wasn't it something like $10,000 all said and done?
