It's common for the M42. Yes there can be other damage such as a cracked head or block. You need to be certain about who is putting it back together because if they screw up on the profile gasket you will have problems again soon. Good luck :thumbup:

BTW, how much are they asking and could you potentially find a 91 318is which is the lighter E30 body ?

they have no power you will want your vw back oh but they are beautiful . me and my 1996 318is have a love hate relationship . but if your looking for power this is not the car
