Hi Iím looking to buy an s54 as mine had catastrophic engine failure. Willing to pay the price but I need to see the engine running or you need to be a well respected member of the community.

Also, if you need a working VANOS unit and exhaust hub with intact tabs, I have spare ones, so let me know.

Check this site out:

It links dismantlers across the country with parts. You may not be able to hear it run, but they may offer a warranty.

He parts out a tonne of M3s. He has 34 itrader 100% reviews on m3forum, here is one of the recent threads: http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=612449

I've dealt with him personally for parts when I was rebuilding my M3. Jim also used to track him M3 and is well known in norcal, so yes, he is trusted.
