Q: The car has a cracked head. 1996 BMW 328i

asked by on

I was wondering how much I would be looking to pay to have a shop put in a new engine that I've supplied, I can take out the old engine but I'd like to have a shop put the new one in. It's a 1996 bmw 328i

My car has 230000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there - unfortunately, an engine swap is not a service YourMechanic.com is able to offer at this time. Thanks for thinking of us though!
