What will be the consequence ?
What to do ? What not to do
What engine ? 4cy or 6cy ?
Will I have problems to do this?
Anyone has done this ?
(sorry for the bad english)
I don't know where b-river is, though it sounds very nice, but depending, it might become even more difficult for you.
One thing I didn't read in this thread is the cost of doing this and since you said you'd ask a garage to do it, I'll say this:
By the time you've put in new engine, paid the shop, and dealt with the months you spend without your car, the year you'll spend after getting it back working out the kinks, the $$$ you'll have spent...you might just be better off selling what you have, working and saving, and then buying the car you want.
And then, even then, OP, you probably will still think your BMW slower than many cars you wish it was faster than.
You're planning on spending more on an engine install than your car is worth, and make your car less attractive to all but the most knowledgeable buyers...should you ever decide to sell. I know I wouldn't consider buying a car when I hear a guy dropped a new motor in, unless that guy is Enoc, Kalim or Mk, or one of very, very few people around.
I'm thinking of Humpty Dumpty now for some reason!:lmao:
