My service guy has arranged to have the carbon/valve cleaning covered. Good to see, but it shouldn't be this hard. 4 years/50K mile warranty should cover whatever problems the car has outside of...

My car has no issue with idle. The hesitation occurs during acceleration; mostly between 2000-3500 rpm. I'm not entirely convinced that cleaning the valves will cure the symptom. I guess I'm about...

I do oil changes at 6K miles. If my hesitation issue is indeed related to carbon buildup, I will become a large, sharp thorn in BMW's side if they refuse to take care of it under warranty. In fact,...

Thank you...I sent you a pm. I'll keep you all posted. I'm selling this car to a very good friend, but told him I won't complete the sale unless I'm sure the car is in perfect order.

My car is having hesitation issues and the service guy is suggesting the same, but telling me BMW will not cover it under the warranty. Did you have to argue with them to get them to cover it?

One of the SIBs regarding this issue discusses using a product by 3M called "adhesive remover". I applied it to the rubber seals and my problem disappeared. This was 2 years ago.

Anyone know if BMW has learned from this experience? Maybe the engineering wizards hired a plumber to help them find a more suitable location for the electronics in the F11???
