Sorry if I sound harsh but you probably shouldn't drive an FI M3 to begin with
Enlighten me on why you put 89 in the car? Stupidity fascinates me. I'm not ESS or Biglare who sold you the car so I can tell you exactly what everyone is thinking...
Gentlemen lets all take a step back and not kick him while his down. Who really knows what happen to this engine. Yes, it could be a lot of things, wrong octane, preexisting rod bearing or valve defect exacerbated by a SC etc, etc. Ultimately his going to have to dig deep in his pockets to buy a new engine.
