extended warranty 2008 535i sport

Been in the BMW shop at least 5 plus times for the same reason. BMW says the problem is taken care of but there I go back again with same issue. It's all engine related. I have an extended warranty that will cover it but they want my warranty to expire and then tell me I need a new engine. How do I get them to fix this problem? Is there anyone I can write? What options do I have? Please help me. Thanks

Have you taken it to another warranty approved mechanic for a second opinion? That's what I would do if you feel like your getting the run around to stretch things out. Keep lots of documentation on this process too.

Good luck finding a fix.

Shaking like a missfire, they claim to have fixed it but the problem is never fixed. Been in the BMW shop over 5 times for this. Each time they say they have fixed whatever that was causing the problem. It last for like 2 weeks and right back to the dealership. Smell gas all the time. Same situation they tell me we corrected the problem. Other things as well but how do u get them to fix things that's covered under warranty? It needs a new engine. They have tried to fix everything about that engine and nothing has worked. It need a new one. Who can I write? What can I do? M yextended warranty is through them. That's the only place I can take it.

What have they done so far to fix the problem? misfire on a 535i is usually bad injectors or bad high pressure pump.
