I just came across a nice deal on a clean 95 325i - auto with a engine problem. I have a shop to do all the work, and the time, just never worker with BMW's. (I can't have an auto tranny either). Worth the work to do, how involved?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On the pre-96 cars it's very doable, and very easy. This is absolutely possible in a weekend - especially if you have access to a shop and much more general mechanical knowledge than I could ever dream of having - I was amazed at the simplicity of the swap.
Now that the car is up and running again, I'm very happy I went through the swap. I'll respectfully disagree that finding another car is easier than the swap.
