    So my block cracked today and I’m trying to gauge my options. I have a 2004 525i. First thought is to replace with the OEM engine. But I was wondering if anyone has done a conversion to either diesel or even electric? Curious if it is an actual option & what/where to find conversion kits. Could...

    Need to replace an injector and assumed it would be covered just like the long list of parts with the 10 yr\120k extended warranty. Well while my model is exactly identical in every way to the 2015+ that were manufactured after July 2014 but not my 2014 manufactured in Jan 2014. No one at BMW...
