    Greeting all, I just took my 2013 550i BMW in for service (new tires) and while driving it, my wife in the chase car said she was seeing blue smoke and smelling oil. Long and the short of it, BMW wants to replace the engine (I've complained about oil consumption since I bought it new in late...

    Hi All, dropped off my 2013 328i N26 early last week at the dealer for a minor idle/stutter issue after recently having the dread timing chain replacement service done. My advisor was out this week and really hasn't gotten any updates until today when another advisor called me to say "I just...

    My car has been at a reputable German shop now for 8 weeks and I'm not getting anywhere. It first appeared like a bad fuel injector as I completely lost power and exhaust poured out white smoke that smelled like pure gasoline. They said they did a diagnostic and determined 1 bad injector...

    I recently purchased a used 06 with 126k miles on it. The car has a loud clicking noise that continues when you run it and accelerate. I bought the car from who I thought was a mechanic and he told me I just needed a value adjustment. I got it checked out a a local mechanic and he claims the...

    Hi everyone, it seems that my 2006 325i bmw engine has been severely damaged to the point where the shop says its toasted due to heat. The feedback was the radiator, water pump, thermostat were leaking to the point the car heated up and caused more damage when I was attempting to get it off a...

    I have a 2007 E90 335xi AWD with 140k miles on it. Recently the engine warning light came on but said it was safe to drive the car so I drove the car about 20 miles home to get all my crap out of it before taking it to the shop but never made it home as the engine died. 2 shops have told me I...

    On 6/24/2014 I was driving my 2011 550 xi home from work in a down pour. A section of the interstate had standing water but all lanes were going through slowly. I followed a Toyota Corolla through the water slowly and all lanes moved. My car stopped and stalled out. The Audi A6 behind me...

    This thread is for the removal/rebuild/installation of my engine. The title to my previous thread was about a head gasket, which was no longer really the case I will go back and add the early pictures and more detail to this thread later. Below are all the ones from last weekend and this...

    I have a 2001 330i with a head gasket problem. The response I've gotten from most mechanics is to replace the engine. Is it worth it? The car has a clean body and I love it. I've heard from a lot of non BMW drivers that I should just sell my car and buy a new one, but that seems wasteful to...

    Am I foolish to consider paying $7700 out of pocket for a new engine when I can get a recycled one for the cost of my deductible? My daughter has a 2006 325i, 60K miles, very good condition inside and out except for a ruined engine. Hydrolock and needs to be replaced. State Farm will cover...

    I have a 528i 1999 4 door sedan. In August my car broke down on 495 and found out I had a radiator leak which ended up causing quite a bit of damage. So much so the mechanic tried to machine the head gasket and replaced the radiator however when they went to put the engine back on the block they...

    Hi All I have a 2002 BMW 325 ci (E46). Beautiful car, works great. The trick here is that I got it at a really good price from a guy who - at that time - owned a junk yard. He told me that the original engine "blew up" and was offered the car for about $2000 or so. He bought it and replaced...
