i am the seller and i didnt get ripped off, i swapped the oil filter cap and valve cover as the originals were scratchede horribly. The oil filter cap and valve cover is off a 328 as they are the same fit as the m3, only thing that is not the same is the oil filter cap, wich is plastic i have the old one as well but its scratched alond with the valve cover.

p.s. the 97 m3 valve covers are plastic not aluminum, 95's were aluminum like the 325's. 96-99 M3 VALVE COVERS R PLASTIC AND SO IT THE OIL CAP.

Do ur homework b4 u post. And the reason I didnt post is because I am in the canadian armed forces fighting for this country. And that looks damn good jus crzn

If you want to insult me fine...
But if you read the posts i said oil "filter cap"
Here's a pic.
I know these motors and yours, dosn't look right.
Metal oil filter cap is just one visual diff between m52 and s52...

Well, actually, you're not really fighting for THIS country, since we're not at war, but that's another topic entirely.

We asked for an explanation on the 328 filter cover, and you provided it ... makes sense to me! All we were asking is to provide details of obvious differences from a stock s52 motor, even if some members choose to be more bitchy about that others

Good luck with the sale.

Why is he a joke?
He has an engine for sale already converted. There were quesitons, he answered them. The oil filter housing was also purchased from a respected member on the forum too, which does add credibility.
