Bought second hand from the original dealer . Just turned 110K kilometres (65K mikes) . Garage stored and mostly city driven . Extended warranty just expired Sept1/18 .
Now in service garage with a pinhole crack in the engine block . I’m not up to date with the history of these engines . Has this been an inherent problem with these engines ?

Nope never heard of pin-hole leaks in the engine block. That would either have to be a faulty casting or perhaps the engine was blown at one time. Is the Dealer reliable? I think I'd look for a second opinion. Just my $.02.

I ask because I have a 2009 128i Cabriolet with 114,000+ miles and it's dry as a bone re: oil leaks except a little seepage from the oil pan gasket. (They want a thousand dollars to fix that by the way... The subframe has to come out in order to get to the oil pan.)
