Yes, I believe it is direct injection. My wife has a 2016 forester XT. It's nice driving SUV. At some point I'll probably have to have walnut shell blasting on it. But she loves the forester. My...

If possible, go to a different dealer. If a dealer tried to sell me a 6300 repair I didn't need, that'd be the last time he got any business from me. I might also be inclined to give BMW NA a call.

So they have some parts. Seems BMW NA is playing a dangerous game of only fixing the recall on failure. Seems ridiculous to me that they have a recall and no parts. It's been six months since I...

I don't know how long. I just noticed it one day. It's a 2014 328d. I would seem to have been fairly sudden as I went a few years with no noticeable leakage at all. I've noticed no liquid leakage...

I've seen carbon build up for the BMW diesel 6 cylinder as low as 1200 on this forum. Shop around. Given the A clean up and you've got an engine that will easily go another 120 miles.
