Customer Question
E53 4.8is engine blew.....

E53 4.8is engine blew... have 2006 750i n62b48 but everyone says it won't work any thoughts?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

210,000 auto

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 750i yourself? What have you tried so far?

Its the x5 paying a shop to swap it, but he says they says it won't work

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just his thoughts on whether those motors will swap
