Short version:
car crapped out, Ive been told the DME was bad, dumped some fuel in one of the cylinders ruined the engine...at least thats what ive been told. BMW is replacing the engine as we speak..

this is all happening as ive been trying to sell the car(not because of problems)...its been in the shop pretty much constantly for 2 months. With this and another issue.

My question is this...

how bad is this going to kill my resale or trade in value? Its an '03 with a new motor i know..



this all sucks..

Good question. I wouldn't think it would hurt the value. I could even see it maybe helping a bit. OTOH, somebody might see it as you have abused it and that caused the failure. I would show any potential buyer the paperwork showing the BMW paid for teh replacement. Also a letter from teh dealer stating the cause would be nice but I doubt you would get that from them.
