2001 325i bad motor....updated 1-26-13
The BMW addiction has hit me. I currently own 3 and bought my daughter a 2001 325i that had ran hot. When I pulled the head off found the #4 piston is burnt and cylinder wall is scored. I am looking at pulling this motor and replacing it. I have been told that a 01 or 02 2.5 motor is plug and play assembly and that a 03-06 I would have to change some items. I could not find an interchange list online and was wondering what year besides the 01 would be an option. Thanks in advance and look forward to learning a lot from this site.
