Ok so the dealer says its not misfiring but its the actual transfer case causing the issue that its slipping under the torque.

Holy crap. What is the fix? Don't tell me a new transfer case! You are looking at another $3,500 if it is!

Nope even if its thick with film then it wouldn't cause fuel starvation. Injectors would not report as faulty,

Whaaa? BMW has parts for the job! Got 'em myself -- when 60 k rolls 'round, a pre-emptive strike. Fairly easy DIY.

Hudson Valley BMW do not have walnut blasting

I finally negotiated $400 off the price of the car and took it apart myself. Fixed it in about a half hour. They're pathetic.

It seems to me that you're being taken for a ride and they're wasting your money trying to figure out the problem. I gave you all my independent specialist's information. I don't even know who you are and I'm telling you that this guy is truly superb. Dealerships and other shops in the area bring him cars that they can't fix themselves. Will you please at least give him a call? I promise you he'll find what the actual problem is, give you a straight answer, a straight solution and you'll never go anywhere else ever again.

I see; If it helps the Hudson line stops really close to there (Scarborough- he'd give you a ride to the train if you want), or you could hang out at the shop/walk around the area if you have the day off, there are a few shops/delis in the area, really not that much though. Best of luck.

Seems my 2013 X1 will not stop start like it is meant to. Sweet.

I am so tired I just drove to the shop in my X1 and asked whats going on with my car I need it for work tomorrow. LOL they are just now pulling it in to check on it. Its been at the dealership since 8:40am. Service manager thought I was joking that the X1 is not right. he went and drove it came back and said yep needs service. 4 weeks old

Awesome...

This is completely false and I am thinking they don't have a clue. There were reports of HPFP failures and there were no long cranks. I would say HPFP could be the problem....

Air intake valves coked in carbon and I had to strip them myself with cab cleaner, brushes and lots of shop towels.
