Mein Auto: 2008 X3
N52B30 Engine Rebuild Kit Available?

I'm about to look at an X3 that likely needs a rebuild amongst other things.

I see a $500 kit (quality=?) on eBay for the just-earlier X3 engine but not the 2007+ N52B30. Know of a kit for this later 3.0si engine? I'm not finding a kit quickly at my normal suppliers.

Still no luck on finding a kit. Even Fel-Pro doesn't sell a gasket set.

Looks as if OEM is the only way to go? Or maybe an engine/drivetrain swap -- HemiX3 anyone?
