    General BMW Discussions
    I have an E46 330cd at 200000 miles. I was wondering how significantly an engine rebuild would increase its value. The engine runs great but if it would be seen as mitigating the one major flaw of the car (its mileage) then I would consider it. Is it seen as a reset on the engine age or less...

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I've been quiet as I'm fuming. In Oct 2016 we fitted a replacement V12 (see pic) as the previous one had multiple failures due to sheered cylinder head stretch bolts.
