Default Re: New to me M3. From e36 to e90.

Contacted the original owner. He didn’t do them.

I called 3D Autoworks in Hudson NH. Reputable BMW repair shop.

They advised me not to touch the bearings. Since the mileage is to high that there could be scoring on the crank. Which in that case I would need a whole new engine/ rebuild. So in other words I bought a car that needs a rebuild. (Unless there is no scoring)

They told me to get an oil sample. And drive it...

Is this really what should be done? That sounds like a ticking time bomb if you ask me.
