nice dude, i know a good shop down in san diego that you can get whatever you need from. I'm working on some credit issues right now (got my anual credit report, seems that someone has had a credit card in my name for about a year now, luckly they haven't bought anything illegal/always paid their bill) so i have to iron that out, but this week i was going to get a 1997 3.2L engine/5spd tranny/ecu/harnes/instrument cluster/shift assembly/clutch assembly/and maybe m3 calipers and rotors, but this thing came up with the credit, so i'm trying to get it all figured out b4 i leap into this build. if you don't mind me asking where'd you get the engine/what price/how many miles??

http://www.bmrparts.com/ <-- for the engine.

I had it pulled with just under 50K miles. Its from a 97' so it should mate right up. What shop in San Diego are you talking about? Most place that I've looked into to doing the swap are in LA area. Thanks.

the dude that's doign the swapp is at a place called "The M Shop" it's up in northern LA, he's done 2 other 318ti swaps and his car is actually the 318TI-M3 OBD-II conversion. He's doing the labor for 2G's wich i thought was great, + that includes warranty. (and he's got to deal with converting mine to the 5 speed.

Come one guys read the topic. This is for everyone's interest.
If you dont already have the swap please dont post in here. This way we know exactly who to ask when we have questions concerning swaps?

Damn! You must have done something pretty bad in a former lifetime to have that karma. Still hope you work it out. Funny how some swaps go w/o a hitch and others drag on. Any thoughts as to why this has happened or what went wrong so others can benefit?
