    Year 2000, 540i with "M" package. Body looks like new. Color=red. Two different mechanics have told me that the engine is done. I'm not a mechanic like many on here so I have to go by what they tell me. This leaves me with a few questions. 1. Can that engine be replaced with a smaller, lets...

It has 110K and has been running well, until a few days ago when it stalled at a stoplight and seemed to start running a little rough, but nothing too bad.
