Not with the block but here is the list: air oil separator,AC compressor,motor mount,power steering pump,shocks,lifters,8 of them $37 a piece with 10 hours labor.oil leaks start under the oil filter lines,$70 a piece.radiator,water pump will die as a fact at 100k..$700 parts & labor not to mention the $ZF tranny.the list go on and on and on.Think twice or three before you buy it.
I am in the process of purchasing my aunt's 1994 540i with 85,000 miles.

back in 1998 (with 71,500 miles), because of a recall, a new engine block was put in.

I am worried that i might have some problems down the road. has anyone had this done? do i have anything to worry about.

Thanks.
