I found some on Ebay - 97 M3 engine with around 40k miles is about 4000$. This includes transmission, blah-blah - complete takeout. You'd have to change exhaust system on 318 as well. Figure labor costs 2 grand. Or, for 6 grand, buy another 318

would the price/ease of installation change a lot based on if the car was a 318 or a 325? or maybe a 328?
