I don't have a clue because I'm on the East coast.

But before you get that PPI done, get the same shop to give you a compression test FIRST. I've saved myself countless times on buying used BMW's because they usually pass the PPI, but it's hit or miss on passing the compression test. If it fails the compression test, you walk away without ever getting the PPI.

The condition of your new/used motor is Very important.



Good luck,
