I'm curious to see if the BMW people really get their hands dirty. Who here has done a motor swap themselves, [i]not[i] hired a shop? You don't really see BMW people do it with cars after the E36 and jdm people do it all the time for the price of BMW bolt-ons and make double the power or even more so it makes sense to do it in my book. I'm in the middle of doing 2 - an S50 into my E30 for DD use and a 1JZ into my 240 drift car (damn near triple the power of the stock motor for only about $6K).
Stop putting stuff like painted reflectors and premium package in your signature. You're embarrassing.
