Bumming on The BMW Store, I bought a used 2009 BMW 335d at a used car dealer in Mason (KG Motors) the day after I bought it the SES light and Reduce Engine Power icon came up. I ended up taking it to The BMW Store, it had carbon buildup in the intake manifold and cylinder head, the intake needed to be replaced (plastic it can't be dipped or cleaned) and the cylinder head needed to be removed and sent to a machine shop to be cleaned, all totaled I spent $5505 for the repair, BMW kicked in $1000 and KG Motors kicked in $1000, the bmw store had the car for almost a month, I got it back and drove approximately 39 miles and the engine locked up, HYDROLOCKED they say. Of course the cause was from nothing they did, it's just a coincidence that it locked up less than 40 miles after they "FIXED IT". Initially they offered me a new motor for "AROUND" $15,500 they have since come back and offered it to me for "AROUND" $12,000 - Really!!

Thanks for the welcome.

Anyone can recommend a certified BMW center in Cincinnati. Got into a small fender bender, and since I'll be here for a few days I figure why not do the repairs.
