Got an engine $6000 for a 29000 mile engine. Even less miles than when I first got the car. Should be another week and half and it should be done with. The end is in sight, pics to follow when engine arrives I'll have to make a trip to the shop.

That's how much it costs if you have BMW do it, typically an n54 engine can be had for around 6-7k.

Aren't there better ways to spend 8k? You fellas have mad cash....47%'ers no bout a doubtit!

Some folks get an extended warranty just in case, some folks just go ahead replace the motor just in case...what a diverse world we live in.

Just get a new corvette engine and shoehorn that baby in there. Problem solved. Can probably get it for about $0.45 and a pack of malboros.
