E46 Engine Swap options

So one of our daily drivers, a 328i is pretty much done with its engine. Im debating whether to put in a new engine and use it as my daily over the summer and winter beater..

I want the 328i to stay auto - but I'm not sure what kind of engine is best in terms of cost and install...Ill probably have the install done at a shop but need to figure out..

1., Which engine to go for?
2. How much should I be looking to spend for the new engine and install and what else should I change eg cooling system etc to make sure we have everything covered.
3. Anyone have a ball park figure of how much labor will cost - for the install?>
