How much money do you want to put in a new engine? Perhaps an upgrade to M3 or just another 2.5L?

well here is the low down. I called APEX motorsports out of san diego, and for what I wanted it would cost me 9k for the engine and the installation. So I just bought a new one its nice its a 92 325 I with 80k miles. As far as the engine, the top end needs to be rebuilt. The lower block was done in feb. Right now as it sits it has a redone black leather iinside with m3 contour rims. I prob going to keep the rims, but I am going to part the car out. If you need anything let me know, ill give the board members first dibs.
Then Ebay sucka.

wow, with those engine prices; exactly, buy a used one, swap bits, sort your main one out, sell the other.
