I have a 1997 323i Auto with a M52 B25 engine I assume!
I need to change engines and have seen an engine with the code M52 BF82?.
It is from a manual 97/98 323i but still has a clutch/flywheel attached.
See here: BMW engine 2,5 M52 from a 323 E36 on eBay (end time 28-Dec-10 19:32:09 GMT)
I have been advised "You would have to take the starter ring off your auto and connect it to the torque converter"
Are these two engines compatible?
Is this advice correct?
Thanks in advance for your help, Matt.
