Damn JR! I thought they had given you a brand new engine after the first issue. Sounds like all they did was put a band-aid on it and sent you on your way. Sorry to hear this.

Hydraulic tensioner?

So my wife's X3 had to have the tensioner replaced yesterday and now this morning I noticed that she is leaking brake fluid from the driver's side front wheel (puddle on the garage floor). I'm sure...

Extended Maintenance on CPO Vehicle

Does this cover different items than an extended plan on a new car purchase? Also, I know that belts are covered, but would a belt tensioner and/or air conditioner compressor be covered?

Thanks in...

Hey there Mr. Pinecone!

Having owned both I'll offer my two cents. From a standing start, or at lower speeds and mashing the throttle, I have to say that my e92 is quicker than my e46 was. I'm not...

+1

And you'll want to keep a few quarts in the garage in between oil changes because the engines are notorious for burning oil. I seem to be on a pace to go through 1 quart every 5K miles.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that the Dinan engine is only $20K provided that you give them the original from your car. Without the trade-in the price is more like $40K+.
