Have done search (thanks Bluebee!), but few finds that provide answers in terms of labor hours required.
I am negotiating with my mechanic re: cost of either a m52, single vanos head cylinder repair job with thread repair if needed or a complete engine swap for my 1998 528i with 2/98 build date. We would send head to machine shop for repairs if needed.
What are good estimates for number of labor hours required for him to complete each of these jobs? He is a one man shop with plenty of experience with engine rebuilds of e36, e46 and e39's.
Thanks in advance.
