I quite liked the I8 you bugger, well, I mean the missis did
I originally had Scott with the I8 and you the bus pass, but where you live your probably best off with a Benidorm chariot
Ya fooken tosser
That's what I'm saying they won't replace "out of warranty" so gesture of good will is worth a try but I highly doubt BMW will approve given the cost of the item. Plus it opens the flood gates for eveyone else who may be in the same boat. Do it for one do it for all
Does it need to be removed to be welded?
That is a design/manufacturing defect and in no way can be considered normal wear and tear, if they don’t play ball and do the decent thing I would threaten them with trading standards,
Not where that is buddy, piece of p1ss for a welder
A man up my street, and you'd win
It will be lost on them fella...trust me. The warranty has expired, end of unfortunately.
On a serious note
Can you still buy the Mpe
Ime not too sure about that Melv, the trouble with welding Titanium is it has to be scrupulously clean and needs a back purge of argon to get a perfect weld, not easy in situ.
Is that pipe going into the muffler stainless or titanium Fred, I noticed the pipe going into mine is titanium, not dpsure if I have the new design one they were going to release in June
Beat me to it Fred...that variant is well known for cracking, not sure about guarantee but can guarantee wouldn't let it rest until they played ball
No idea Melv but we have been joining titanium to stainless and titanium to titanium for decades without screwing it up the way they have.
Warranty is warranty. If they approve a claim as a gesture of good will for one it opens up the flood gates for eveyone else who had a claim rejected to kick up a stink.
I think BM will be pretty fair about it and acknowledge it's a design fault, weather you can get your dealer, who prob won't give a sh1t to pursue it on your behalf is another matter.
You can then always go to BMUK
Agree Melv....would be a rum do if all our cars fell to bits just after warranty had run out
Someone on the other thread has just had his replaced with the latest super duper version and there is an extra stiffening bracket.
This proves it is a design fault and the end plate has been flexing hence the bloody big crack as displayed on the OPs pic. I would go back to the dealer and shout DESIGN FAULT they do not have a leg to stand on.
Yes according to Phil at Cotswolds
