X1 issues 11 days in shop

I have a 2013 BMW x1 that went into the shop for sputtering and grabbing. The car has been in dealership for now 11 days. They cannot seem to pinpoint the issue. BMW dealership wanted to replace the main computer - but BMW NJ refused. Ordered a part and then that didn't solve the issue. Has anyone had similar experiences? car has 46K miles and still under warranty

When are you eligible for lemon law? Are you driving a BMW loaner in the mean time?

That's a good question that I need to research under Florida law. I was given a Chevy Malibu sedan as a loaner. My impression is that BMW does not want to replace the master computer under warranty - so they are trying different cheaper alternatives. The dealership wanted to change the master computer but bmw wasn't allowing it. They flew in a part but that didn't work. They are now changing the O2 sensor but that hasn't worked either.

Evidently the Florida lemon law says if the car is out of service for 30 days in the first 24 months you get a new car. You might want to look into that.

Wow! Regardless of mileage?!!! Happy Birthday to the OP. I hope they never figure it out. And forget calling them about updates. Just let these 19 more days quietly slip away.

I had two faulty fuel injectors on my 2013. They in turn fouled two spark plugs. The car bucked and shook so violently I was scared to drive it. It was in the dealer one day and out the next. Fixed so far and enjoying it again.

My 2013 S-drive was bucking under hard acceleration from misfire and going into limp mode, soon after deliery, but they couldn't reproduce in Service. Go figure. First dealership said there was noting wrong. Second tried swapping coils and apparently that pointed to a bad coil. That was replaced on the second visit and all has been fine since.
