Try Bavarian Auto Recycling www.bmrparts.com I have had some great luck with these guys. There is also Autobahn Parts www.autobahnparts.com and Bimmers South bimmerssouth.com Good luck!

Thanks Michael! I have tried the BMRparts with no luck. They do not have the engine I am looking for. It's tough to find the right one since there are so many different models and the AWD one is special. I will try the others you mentioned. Thanks!

I am happy to help. What part of the country are you located? I know there are some shops that specialize in rebuilt engines as well. You just send them you old core as part of the exchange process.

I'm in Northern Colorado. I would rather get a rebuilt engine, but from what I've found they're more expensive and I haven't found much about them online. But that would be cool if you know of any places I could look into it. Thanks!

Another question: What should i expect to get when buying a used engine? I think I found a good one but, like most i've looked at, they only come with certain parts... do you know what's like normal? and How do I know what parts I might need? can the mechanic just take them from my engine? Any info would be most helpful! Thanks! Oh! and what should be expected from a warranty? Most of them say "parts warranty"?? Is this different than another kind of warranty? sorry... I've never done this before... want to make sure I get it right!

I would ask the seller to provide you with a written warranty spelling out what is and is not covered; along with a list of all parts to be accompanying the engine.
