V10 (S85) 2008 e90 m3 SWAP!

So as all you have been hearing or following the bearing problems occurring with these engines, my engine's crank seized and was out if warranty. I kept getting a half shaded check engine light but went away after restarting the car. Mentioned it to the dealer but they denied anything wrong.

I had to get this back up and running again. Only had this car for a year. Therefore, I needed a new engine. A friend of mine mentioned to look into a swap,the s85. I did some research made a few calls and here I am.



Thanks to Mitchell at Offset in SoCal who's up for the challenge
Also great aprectiated thanks to alex@alpine for the one to code and start up the car!

I will be switching to mobil 0w-40 also.
Will be posting more pics next week and updates of the process as well! Keep checking for sooner updates!

Exciting!!

I presume you're going to be using the DME, key, and other needed control units from the donor E60 M5? Or are you going with a standalone setup to start the car?

This is a great project!! Definitely subscribed!

I'm all for the swap, but the S85 is the same engine, +2 more cylinders, and it has the same problems.

That being said, I look forward to seeing this progress. E90s FTW, BTW
