Mein Auto: 2012 328I
528XI Engine swap

Hi all new to this community,
I have an opportunity to get 2013 528xi with bad engine, (timing chain failure according to dealer report). I have 328i sitting at home wrecked after some bad luck on the road.
I have been trying to find out if its possible to put engine from 2012 328i sulev into 528xi.
What I'm worried the most is one being AWD and my 328 is just the RWD if there is any difference in engine mounts or any other components that will prevent me from successfully completing this project.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!!

Please help and thank you!

BMWs are complicated animals. You're probably best starting off with talking to indies first. I can see a ton of problems from the ECM to sensor problems.
