Bmw123d. Engine problem


I have a bmw123d m sport and I have a problem with the crankshaft which has spun a bearing.  The mechanic has told me it needs a new engine block as he can’t line bore the engine block as oversize bearings are not available so it needs a new engine block apparently is a rare engine N47D20D. 

Looking around on eBay etc it seems this is a common problem with the number of businesses offering engine rebuilds etc. I was wondering if anyone had the same problem and how they overcame it. 

Many thanks.

has it done many miles, does it have BMW s/history, might be worth contacting bmw head office and try your luck ?

Might be worth trying to get an engine out of a scrap/ wrecked car ?

Good luck

Think you have just answered my question about buying a diesel
