LF: Complete M42

Hey guys, I'm new to these forums but hoping to be a regular here eventually. I'm in need of an M42 for my 91 318is. The Maritimes is NOT the easiest area to find parts for an E30. Spent almost a year trying desperately to track down a suitable replacement engine that was afforable and the closest I've come has been a 300,000km motor with questionable history

Anyone able to help? I'm dying to get this car on the road. Thanks guys

Well, I have spoken to some people in Ont off and on from ads I've seen on kijiji, but noone was willing to ship and I wasn't able to find any companies that would courier or truck it this far east fron Ont,

What would you be looking to get for the M42?

Hadn't really thought about it with the excitement of the m30 going in...... The shipping will be your main problem..... I'll do some research into a price.
