Mein Auto: 81 323i and 93 525i
Well I floated the valves when I missed the shift, not badly (a relative term), so I'm taking the head off and then I'll know if I need new pistons or not. Depending on what how bad it is I'll either rebuild the head and polish the piston crowns or pull the whole thing and put my spare motor in.
I'm hopeing just the head and light polish since I don't have a garage at the moment and I'm running out of nice weather, since the spare engine is still in the donor car (a rear ended 95 325i) for my e21 323i m-50 conversion.
