Thanks just trying to work out if it’s cheaper to buy a new car and sell it off cheap
if chain end its in uk money £440 for the full kit in parts alone then uo top of that the special lock tools needed another £200 ish , and to be honest these engines all go same way around 10 year old and 60k plus miles they also suffer from oil use from stem seals rubber gone hard and bmw crappy piston rings,, i've been using better ring sets in them when i rebuild them,, its funny today the parts guy told me that the supplier of these better rings sets are selling hundreds of them and are not genuine fitment,,, ha ha no shit sherlock was me who first started using them many years ago and are so much better ,, short answer is no prob not worth the expense and hassle
