E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

sagging hood insulation

the insulation on the hood above the engine is sagging in front and seems to have shrunk that it won't fit into the slots anymore...

anybody have this issue and did your dealer fix it?

thanks

Try taking it back to dealer, they probably will fix / replace it uder warranty since it's a defect in materials.

Mine sags as well. I doubt they will fix it under the CPO warranty but may be worth a try.

I'm fairly sure I read somewhere that dealers are instructed not to bring up non-critical defects that could be repaired (even if there's a TSB) unless the customer complains of the problem...

It may not have been BMW that I read it from... but I suspect that's the standard approach from all manufacturers...

I guess it's a common problem... I won't get to the dealer till next week... anybody who gets there earlier post your experience...

Mine sags too . What the hell is this? they can't even get a decent insulation material that won't shrink? These are the little things that mkaes me wonder about these high paid engineers at times. I'm going to just have my SA take care of it even if they just order it, it's something I can replace myself.
