So my question to Paul would be, were your journals machined at all to accept higher clearances?
My journals were tweaked a little but to create less friction and thus less issues with wear there were special processes done to the actual bearings too.

Were you getting an indication that the bearing was going? Knocking sounds?

TZ, this was a corrective and not preventive job, right? Was this the first look of your rabbit-hole nightmare?

What did you end up doing with your old engine ??

Will post pictures of my RB when I can but they were also in really bad shape with only 62000KM on the clock, I'm the 4 owner of the car so really not sure about how the maintenance was being done before but under me I was changing oil and filter every 5000Km... (FYI it's really hard to drive a lot and long distance in HK..)

I bought a replacement engine that just arrived from a 2009 M6 and I'm really considering changing the road bearing as a prevention ASAP to avoid an other engine failure....

Also I'm looking for suggestion on what to do with my failed engine.

Smart...I would. How many miles on the replacement motor? I think we'd all want to see the replacement motor's bearings.
