Insurance adjuster was out this morning and verified everything the dealer said - glass to low, wrong seals, and damage to various trim pieces. He said he's never seen anything like it. The dealer...

Agreed Rick - my dealer informed me that they do the glass work themselves in house. It's of no matter to me, I simply want it done correctly. What I'm looking at as the benefit here is techs that...

I agree - the 7 may be flagship in series, but not in design, it has succumbed to the 50 other flavor of the month series cars they are trying to build now. IMO, BMW has lost their way, but don't...

I enjoy my 750 but these posts are getting ridiculous. Injectors, timing chains, valve seals? Seriously WTF BMW?! You really expect me to want to upgrade when you have problems like this?

I lol'd. But seriously check the ccvs and hoses. Did the mech change all seals? My car stopped smoking immediately after I completed mine.

for the time and hassle to build your own box, I'd say find a coder or Indy that will do it for you. 10 minutes with Progman is all it takes.

that would be a temporary solution - this is a closed system, if you are low on oil, it's leaking somewhere. I'm lucky mine leaked but didn't take out any electronics with it.
