Question: Was this from the DEALER? or from BMWNA? In writing? Im asking to see if it is some kind of admission of guilt.

If they are giving you $8400 off a new $24000 motor, then they are still making money on you.....

If it is 8400 off the first $15k number you posted, not too horrible.

Say, did you ever find out what caused the failure?????

Finally, if you dont want to post details, just say so. We'd love to know, and help, but sometimes it isnt in your best interests- until the deal is done.

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label

OEM is not what BMW sells
