Mein Auto: '07 650i

Car died 3/3/19. Order was placed 3/14 from Bimmerzone. I was first in line at Faulkner BMW for an N63TU. Motor arrived 4/26. Installed by 5/3, then I left for vacation with several errors present. Came home last Sunday and got rid of my last error today.

Note - The cam followers are not installed in the new short block! You need to take the old one and install them in the new motor. This knowledge would have saved me a week of hassle and stress. The guy at the dealership parts counter this morning told me that they have had mechanics do the same thing, so I guess I don't feel too bad about it. Just happy to have my X6 back!

Let me know if I can help, I did about 70% of this job myself.
