tried to find an M3.2 lately? Very hard to find in good shape. If you want to buy new, I'd go to Dinan or a 3rd party supplier. A 540 is a nice integrated package, and obviously represents the "easy way out" to power. Either way your'e talking an outlay of about 12K. Not an insignificant amout of money.
: Any advise ?
: I read somewhere that a slam dunk extraction of the current 2.8 engine has been replaced with a 3.2 from M3 Euro specs. Surprisingly, the gear ratio, bolts and those technical stuff fits !! All they did was upload software through the port OBD II ??
: If this can be done - the 321hp is there, why 540 then ?
: Enlightened me.
