Hats off to Tischer BMW in Silver Spring MD, Kristina the SA, and you guys for the info.
And you will be back there come like December getting the head replaced. Good thing you reported this within warranty so they will honor the replacement free of charge.
You can detect right away those that are going to be shaky, and that will fall behind and those that are very hungry, and that hunger you will have to develop. You gotta create a goal for yourself whatever that may be, a short term goal and a long term goal and you gotta go after that. And if you donít see it, and if you donít believe it, who else will?
