Mein Auto: 640i Grand Coupe

compared to the V6 versions. Very strange. My reading of many posts does bear this out - numerous people reporting bad injectors, fuel pumps, plugs ect. on the 650 V8. Now maybe the 2013/14 models have improved on this, like to hear from some folks with '13's for input. All cars can have problems, but the 6 is a flagship model, I frankly expect better than this for almost 6 figures.

BMW corporate policy is a another concern, look at the poor guy with the CPO 7 series. I mean don't they back up a CPO with any warranty? And I know it's now a throwaway society, but if you can't plan to keep a premium top of the line car past the warranty period, it's a sad state of affairs for sure.
I believe it goes back to the dealer as to what they are willing to do for a customer. As I posted above, I have received exceptional treatment/service from my dealer. They were instrumental in getting me a trade assist in 2007, and will do the same again if the 2013 640i GC is not fixed. I also received my first payment statement and it has a zero balance. BMW Financial has waived the first payment since I am not in the car though I'm driving the dealer's personal 640i GC.
