few issues as the drain plug was set with a helicoil. It appears this is a common failure with these pans.
It is not an issue, but at BMW dealerships most of mechanics are very young from tech schools, that get payed very little, so when you take your expensive BMW to BMW dealer is a same thing if you take it to jiffy lube. That when you will get unexpirienced guy torq on 14mm drain plug too much and strip the threads.

I am also looking for one of those engines, I already have a shell to put it in. But I would like to find one localy so that I can see it.
