If you think about it, since there is no insurance claim, the engine swap could easily slip under the radar, and the buyer may never know what he actually has.
Im curious myself too. My 330ci is approaching 160k miles and it just burns a bit of oil. Other then burning a bit of oil, its still running perfect.
