I am going to look at an 85 325e with a bad motor, and I am wondering how hard it is to find a new motor for this model of car. Also I would like to know if any other motors can be interchanged. Any help is greatly appericated.

I am still new to all this technical suff but here is what i know

You can replace your m20 engine with a m50 engine (m3 moter) It had been down numerouse amounts of times

im not sure how much it would cost for a whole new moter, maybe around 5,000+?

now if u just want to replace the existing moter then just go to a junk yard and see what you can dig up

you would do good getting a e30 325i engine (m20b25) I think it's a direct bot, but I understand you'll have to change the differential too
