does anyone have any experience with an engine swap? i have a 85 535i m30. how much time, effort and money is involved. i would rather pay someone to do it, but i don't know what a reasonable price would be. i'd like to do it myself, but don't have a garage

I did the job myself, I have a garage but no special tools and it only took me a week for the whole swap.
