Mein Auto: 2009 BMW 750I
Thank you everybody for all the feed back. Im still waiting to hear from bmw last i heard from the SA was that the service manager would be getting in touch with me about getting the vehicle towed into the shop, They asked me to bring the service record from my other specialists that performed the diagnosis on the vehicle. THE SA was supposed to send me and email regarding the details but i haven't heard from him yet , i called and left him a message as i didn't receive the email from him but no reply, he also asked me to respond back to his email about the experience that i had dealing with bmw dealership since the issue was reported last JUNE !

Im dealing with bmw gallery now ! canuckdon

Sir.chris i really hope im able to get support from bmw on this i feel they are responsible for my vehicle ending up in this state as the vehicle was poorly diagnosed on 3 different occasions !!! Thanks alot for all ur input on this situation much appreciated! i hope to give some good news

Bmw denied the repairs complete bull**** but theres no winning with them once the vehicle is out of factory warranty even though they have the worst technicians !!!! My mechanic ended finding me a new engine with only 7km that came of a brand new 2013 750i (n63TU) which had a flood claim on it but only the rear side of the vehicle was affected , i had the engine tested and turned out perfect ill be getting the swap done within the next week or two will keep you guys posted!!!

The 2009 - 2012 had a Continental DME with a ZF 6HP gearbox - the 2013 N63TU has (2) Bosch DME's as well as being paired to the ZF 8HP.
I think you might have quite a project to get it to work in harmony with the rest of the car.

Rough...I hate dropping that kind of money on a car I already own. Make sure your mechanic installs the newest injectors and codes them.

I am a hobbyist mechanic. A couple friends who own shops and myself did everything except machining the block. I sent that off to the machine shop. I am sorry to hear that man...freaking terrible. Keep me updated. If you are around Indy shoot me a pm. I'll see about getting some friends to help.

Always easier to replace the engine. Odd that it did that after hitting porthole. Your sure there is mechanical engine compromise?

According to bmw the engine is done due to an open fuel injector that poured too much gas in the engine and I was surprise too I had no symptoms no warning they claim it happen like that sometime
