2016 5 series tourer 3L diesel 

Hi  after some advice .

Driving along and the engine went bang , told by the recovery garage engine had seized . Plenty of oil in the engine.

Is it worth repairing or a warranted secondhand engine ?

Welcome to the Forum

Not good news, are you thinking of doing the work yourself or using a Garage?

An engine rebuild at a garage will be more costly as there will be a lot of parts and labour. A warranted engine swap would involve less labour time and get you back on the road quicker

If your doing it yourself you have the opportunity to dismantle the original engine and decide whether it is salvageable may be rebuild and sell to recover some cost

Good Luck
