from charlotte, new to forum - engine advice?

what's up all, I'm from south charlotte and just found this forum today. I have an '85 318i, 2nd owner in its 22 years. I was wondering if anyone had recommendations on where in charlotte I could take it for a complete engine replacement - about 2 years ago the oil ran too low (apparently the computer sensors were malfuctioning, and I carelessly lost track) and the engine just died on the way back from a 7 hour trip to GA.

I haven't had the money to get it fixed assuming I need a new engine. I was thinking of possibly upgrading it to a 325 engine. so, any recommendations on the best place to do this? thanks for any help.

sounds like a great opportunity to roll up your sleeves and get to know your engine bay a little better. My engine spun a bearing two years ago, and instead of having it done by a shop ($3k), we decided to buy a manual for the car, did all the work ourselves (except for the precision machining of the parts, but even that was done for penny's on the dollar of what a shop was able to charge). Did it in our garage too.
