Today, we received an almost exact duplicate of this thread:
- 2001 528i engine

Where the OP stated:

Is there a market to sell a beemer with a bad engine? It is very clean. Or, is there a reliable place to try to buy a rebuilt engine? Perhaps a BMW enthusiasts would like a project to work on...

The car is currently in the Seattle area.
So, again, I ask the OP of 'this' thread ... (so that we can better help others) ...

To the OP:
What was your outcome and what advice can we provide that would have helped?
