aries326- BMW strait up doesn't believe this be harmful in the longterm...so as long as the customer isnt complaining up a storm about a new head or lifters they aren't gonna tell you about it. If you read on it they say no harm is to be done, but they resdesigned the head?
you will have to complain...you will proboly get new lifters and a bled system which i read there not doing but the stealership might do to save a few bucks...then if it persists..they'll replace the head
thats the process
I guess long term is pretty subjective. I've got a old 2001 Jeep Cherokee Laredo in great shape at 115000 miles that I drive in the winter. I've got a 2002 Honda Civic with 92000 miles that is my daily driver. I bet for some people, when the mileage gets that high on their cars, the vehicle is almost ready for the junk yard. Not my vehicles. I take good care of them and I plan on passing this beauty along to my son. I'd like this car to be in best shape possible. As you said, if there is no harm to the engine, then why the redesigned head?
Hopefully they fix it. If not, when this car is paid off, I'm buying a different brand and doing my homework before making the purchase.
