Need To Replace Oil Pan on 1991 BMW 318i w/ e36 engine swap

Hey All,

I have had an oil leak issue for the past few months and am finally sick of it and have the money to fix it. I have been trying to do some research and find the best price and options. My mechanic said I need to replace the oil pan due to it having a hole in it. He also said my valve cover gasket needs replaced.

So i guess what I am wanting is some suggestions on where to find a reasonable priced oil pan, oil pan gasket, and valve cover gasket.

The engine is out of a 1991 bmw 525i so I am guessing that is what I need to look for when searching for parts. I wouldn't mind finding a used oil pan as long as it is in good shape and doesn't leak.

Post me some links and let me know what would be my cheapest but most efficient option.

I really appreciate the help.
