Mein Auto: 2003 525i
My Brother-in-Law is a Chevy mechanic who has done BMW head gasket repair work before. He check block tolerances and determined that was okay. However, we removed hte Head assembly and took it to a machine shop this morning and they said it was shot. They then referd me to an individual who "has a spare cylinder head for the e39" at a cost of $1,350. This sounds high to me, so I am looking for a source of a used cylinder head for a 2003 5251 6 cyl
