I drive a Black 2004 e46 facelift 325xi. I blew out the head gasket diving a little ways without an oil change. I i would fix it but spending 2500 grand just to fix a stock engine seems kinda pointless when I can spend a little more on something fun. Can anyone give me some tips or ideas on it. I’m from west NC idk if that means anything but yeah. Lmk anything.

On an XI the only easy swap is an M54b30 swap.
Agreed, though anything engine related on an XI doesn’t seem easy because of the transaxle taking space.
You can get a decent B30 for way less than $1k these days. Swap it and restore her to glory!
I’ll even flash the DME fromm B25 to B30 software for free. :p
