Assumption: your profile lists you live in california, and you have a 97 M3.

Euro motors are NOT OBDII compliant. You will NOT be able to pass Kalifornia emissions with the swap.

That price is a bit high, realize that price is just the motor and not the 6 speed tranny (also realize you do NOT want the 3.2 diff unless you also get the rar subframe which will add a bunch to the install price). You can get them for less from Alex at ABLoriginalparts.com (tell him Bruce sent you).

If you do all the conversion work yourself, figure you will need to add ~$2k for misc parts.

The conversion is not for the faint of wallet.
