The car was diagnosed with carbon buildup, had almost everything replaced and cleaned up.
12-10-2013, 09:15 PM
Got the car back today.
SCR system replaced

sounds about right.
I was thinking yesterday to stop mentioning what's going on with the car otherwise the second hand market for this model will disappear.

check this out PR.
Look at the dates I posted everything here.
I just got a call from my SA stating the car is not ready yet.
The sensor was replaced, software rewritten on the ECU, but something...

Just got a call from the dealer. It is the "back up pressure sensor", whatever that is. No other details, just that it would cost $361 to replace.
Is it just my car, or are all BMW's crap once...

At this point I think I got a lemon.
This story is becoming boring already.
Picked up the car today from the shop and saw the mess the dealer did with the i/c.
CXRacing has great customer...

That's what I'm researching now.

Took the car to the shop today (the place where I had the i/c on my car initially).
The guy there said everything was very loose. he was able to pull the hoses out by hand without loosening the...

Drove in manual mode today, so I can keep the RPM low (low turbo pressure in the system) for about a mile and I got the limp mode and engine malfunction message again.
I got no clue what is going...
11-08-2013, 02:27 AM
yes and no
It didn't really blow up.
I got my car back today. It doesn't shake anymore.
Apparently one of the hoses came loose.
The dealer did asked me to get the OEM i/c so they can put back...

Got the car back on Wed night.
Drove around on Thursday all day, no problem.
Friday maybe 3 miles away from home on the freeway (no more than 65mph) I heard a loud woosh sound (as if a...

Got my car back today, two weeks later.
Short story: EGR valve replaced, EGR cooler replaced, Large turbo replaced (twice :think: )
it is a true two turbo set up.

50k mi here or roughly 80Km and going through some deep cleaning of the engine right now.
The dealer had to replace the EGR valve and both turbos.
The DPF was actually clean.
The shop foreman...

A new turbo should find its way under the hood tomorrow too.
10-18-2013, 04:49 PM
EGR valve is at fault. Soot build up
10-17-2013, 09:20 PM
Well, not so fast.
Limp mode again, engine malfunction message yesterday.
24 hrs later the dealer still can't figure it out.
09-07-2013, 01:57 PM
It took the dealer a while to figure it all out.
Now that I got no more warranty, Renntech should be first on the list.
09-06-2013, 10:31 PM
mass airflow sensor got fried.
09-04-2013, 12:42 AM
50 miles before the warranty expires my car is in the shop.
Engine malfunction. Reduced Power message on the display and Service engine soon light on.
As far as I can tell, there is no reduced...
05-25-2013, 12:54 PM
did you find the leak yet?
05-17-2013, 01:29 AM
Sounds a bit strange.
The diesel and gas kit are almost identical. The diesel kit was developed a year ago (on my car). Did you talk to Kevin at CX racing?
05-16-2013, 10:48 AM
The guys at CX racing did it all. Piping, connectors and intercooler core. There is an area where there is a sensor inside a pipe where it couldn't be removed. See the pictures and description.
03-29-2013, 11:06 AM
is it coming from the turbo?
03-29-2013, 12:26 AM
I have some oil around the IC intake too. I heard it is normal.
