BMW M47 Diesel Engine


I'm hoping you guys can answer some questions for me.

I originally wanted to import a Diesel BMW car from Europe but Transport Canada regulations suck balls.

So instead I'm now thinking of just importing a diesel engine.

My question is, how hard is it to switch a bmw to diesel (Engine swap)? what exactly is involved, and is it worth it?

I'm hoping you guys can help. Thanks.

It terms of shipping costs, you'll save a bunch. I'm also looking to bring in a diesel engine and transmission to convert a 328xi. I think the rest of the drivetrain is the same but I am not sure how to verify any of that.
