As others have already pointed out, do the connecting rod bearings and, while in there, engine mounts and plugs. Would cost your roughly $2.5k. Make sure to get the BE bearings and ARP bolts.

Enjoy, I've had my 328xi and still enjoy driving it like the day i got it. It feels alive and purpose built compared to most other modern cars.

Likewise and it sounds great.
OP - if this is an option, look for a used unit or wait for a good sale from an OEM supplier, you won't regret it.:thumbup:

No arguments here, the issue is well documented so the redesigned BE bearings correct the clearance issues to prevent oil starvation. Shame on BMW for not stepping up and rectifying the design flaw!...

i hate turbo motors so in that sense, spending the $2k on rod bearings is a small price to pay.
The BE bearings/ARP bolts are on the way as we speak.

Work on the wife...it took me 3+ months but I convinced mine that I need the LRP M3, it was always "the one that got away" and not even the Carrera GTS could quench the thirst. :D

Happy hunting...

I wouldn't trade either of your cars for an F or a G series. There's nothing engaging in electric steering. The 911 GTS is close but no cigar, my 328xi steering is a lot more lively and the M3 blows...

Excellent purchase, enjoy it in good health. The E gen is truly special, perhaps a bit comfy but still a good old BMW with its hallmark handling, round halos, NA motor and a hydraulic steering rack.
