OP backed up his 325i into my car. Now that OP has learned how to swap an S54, OP can learn to park.

Great thread. Really detailed and awesome pictures.

Curious to know (don't feel like going through all the pages at 1AM), what are the results of the DYNO? Not only that, but was the weight distribution disturbed at all throughout the car, or is it still relatively close to 50-50?

Thank you. Haven't put it on a dyno, but I expect it to be making as much as any stock M3, i.e. ~285 rwhp. The weight distribution feels slightly different from before, which makes sense since there's at least 100 lbs of extra weight over the front axle. I've been trying to find some scales to see what corner weights are and will update when that happens.

Thanks for the kind words. That's right, it's never too late.
