    Hello, all. Firstly, I'm new here, so I may not be in the right place, but hopefully I'm close. I've got an early 2000s 323i at my garage where I work, and my boss has told me that I could have the engine and tranny out of it, since the person who was buying it blew a head gasket. Yes, I...

    Hi Folks, For anyone who has the time, I would be most interested to hear theories from those who have experience with working on heads. A few months ago I bought an 06 330i with about 40,000 miles on the clock. It had a bit of oil in the coolant at the time and I presumed a leaking head...
