Default Where to buy s65 replacement motor?

Mrf has diagnosed my engine with destroyed bearings and is not salveagable. Anyone know of a good place to buy a replacement? To be economical I'm looking for likely a used low mileage example but am open to anything good that makes sense. Thanks!

Are you near the Dallas Ft. Worth area? I seem to remember a guy on M3Post (DeansBimmer) who has a shop there that has several S65s on engine stands.

Mike Benvo @ BPM has a fully rebuilt engine in LA. I think that he's asking $11k, but there's some room on that.

I would start with M parts worldwide in New Jersey. Although it is the east coast...they may have a <70k mile motor that they can freight ship on a pallet for ~$7500 ballpark.

Just my .02.


Good Luck OP

That's pretty good. Best I found on salveage websites are 9k and 1500 core.

I couldn't find his PM handy. Have it? I googled and sent an email off his website but a lot of car tuners have those for show. Thanks.
