Mein Auto: MY12 550I,MY09 X5.
its 139,000 and yes mega bills. The dealer tried to bend me over this week Monday they called me telling me I would have to pay them $400 to inspect the valves and that its normally 10hrs on average to clean the valves and they have to rent the equipment from BMW and bill me for it. Umm can you say F U. I said I'll just take the car and do it myself. I bought a set of gaskets and set about pulling my car to bits. Took me an hour to pull the thing to the intake and its taking 2hrs to hand clean each valve inlet.
If you like customer service. Don't look beyond a BMW.
