Probably quicker, easier and cheaper to buy a replacement engine.

I had a similar issue with the cylinder bores being scored in my 955i but just replaced the engine (kept the old one for spares).

I agree. Probably easier and cheaper buying a replacement engine from Ebay, or one of the specialist breakers in the UK

Depends where you are but eBay is usually the best bet. A quick look on the UK site shows one at the moment.
