Everyone knows he is too slow to get away with the cash.
Hope it gets sorted for you Wayne and really interested to hear about "the whole spurious evolution".
for failures such as bolts/washers/pulleys coming loose etc mapping will not make much of a difference
however to up the boost/fuel and increase timing/change the octane tables a bit yes,that will wear the engine and every other mechanical bit of the car out more quickly
So in other words, Big Dave is up **** creak without paddle?
oh no mate, he’s paddling just fine for now
however he has been strongly advised to “seriously think before posting up his experience dealing with the manufacturer”
Sounds like a Munich problem.
Throw em a crate of Weizen.
But they didn’t mention anything about explaining via PM so that’s open for debate
So reading between the lines is the car being fixed, replaced, refunded, swapped? What’s the hopeful outcome?
That's not good enough especially for that mileage. Stick to your guns and build up a case in the background preparing for every response.
I have experience of having my engine replaced under warranty. The dealer will ultimately get paid for doing the repair however the job of the guy they are dealing with at BMW is to avoid paying out warranty claims however possible (and the dealer wants to keep their relationship with him sweet).
It seems there are many many cases of owners who have had this issue on the internet (as there were with my engine failure) so blaming something you have done doesn't hold water. I found that knowledge is power and in the age of the internet they are at a disadvantage when trying to act like these failures are not their responsibility.
In the back of their minds they know they will have to approve the repair but they will try are much as they can to see if they can avoid it. The guys at the dealer are just the middle men who relay the case details to the decision maker. It's not your first BMW and you have a history of buying their flagship models which is something else the emphasise in your case because it does hold weight.
For my part I was just suggesting a straight-ish bat mate
Interested to hear full story. Confused by it so far. Hope you get sorted
Hope it gets sorted matey and take no notice of the warranty warriors.
fixed but we don’t know by whom lol
Who is Big Dave?
You know, Big Dave mate! He’s a big twaat and his names Dave lol
Wayne’s little junior
Yes but an extra 50bhp or so isn’t going to break the engine. The weak points tend to be the crank hub washers and the Mitsubishi turbos. Oh and the Valvetronic.
yes-like i said,they are crap anyway and the manufacturers will use it as an excuse -a get out of jail free card
